For the past two months we have been living out of our suitcases traveling Western USA and Eastern Brazil. Today, looking back at our two month vacation I can't help but feel like the luckiest gal alive. We have seen so much. And more importantly we have seen so many. My kids saw all 14 of their cousins, both of their grandmas, and all three of their great-grandmas. The picture above is at great-grandma Mimi's house in Sacramento, a little piece of Heaven on earth. In my mom's apartment in Sao Paulo we also made pizza. There was no backyard for us to sprawl at but the company was also good. I'm completely over joyed because my younger sis, Iris, has decided to come live with us in Bahia. Yesterday I was looking a a video of when we were younger, I was 12 and she was 2, and I remembered (not that I ever really forgot) how she was my first baby and how I loved her to pieces. Now she treats my kids like her own babies and she loves them to pieces. Families can be so great.
Early tomorrow morning we depart to Bahia, a Northeastern Brazilian state where the weather is always warm and the food is oh-so-good. We're staying at a vacation rental for a week but it's not really going to be a vacation since we're going to be out looking for a permanent address to finally unpack all our stuff.
Good thing that I'll always have my Christian to keep me company and his pizza making skills to keep a crowd fed. We hope you can come visit us.
