Back from Brazil - Stories & Photos

Chris and I were in Brazil for 3 glorious weeks. At first it seemed like a long time away from my bed, my computer and the DVR (the first thing I did when I got back home was catch up on the Bachelorette!). Turns out it wasn't. Because we had too much fun, visiting with tons of friends, gathering family every other day and laughing at stories from the past: reminiscing about my childhood was just what the doctor ordered. Geez, those people are funny!

The weather was rainy (they're in the "winter" now, which means mid 60's to 70's - not bad, huh?) and it was chillier there than back at home, here in Minnesota. Nonetheless, the only thing we didn't make happen was the beach. Instead, we went to a friend's house up in the mountains.

I got to visit my brother's house for the first time (his place has a beautiful view of this lush park with tons of green), and visited my dad as he recovered from an unexpected surgery (he's doing great, in case you wondered). I saw my closest cousins, high school friends, grandparents and former neighbors (which will really always be my neighbors at heart).

On one of the last days, I got to walk my dog, as I really wanted. It was an adventure because we got rained on a LOT! Then I washed him just like I used to when I lived there. I love that puppy! <3

And, of course, I ate more than I dare to admit. It really was wonderful to be there for this time.

It's always bittersweet to come home, because I miss everyone the second I step onto the plane, but I'll always have these photos to put a smile back on my face. :)

So what do you think? Would you like to visit Brazil? Got any questions for me? Ask away! :)
