Eu cheguei!

13 Jul

My goodbye party in San Clemente is one I’ll never forget. I relish every minute I get to spend with my family and friends! This fantastic party really made the celebration of my journey ahead real and the goodbyes that much harder.

After nearly 30 hours of traveling, I was greeted by my Brazilian family at the airport (grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins). I’ve never been welcomed by such a crowd in my entire life. It really goes to show that love and support I have here. I couldn’t be more lucky!

Tia Nilinha (Marcos’ mom) really outdid herself this time. She prepared a large dinner party complete with gourmet Brazilian food and desserts. Chicão (Marcos’ dad) even had my favorite white wine waiting for me! If that wasn’t already enough, my room was supplied with treats, photos, flowers and all kinds of goodies. Quite the welcome!

It was incredibly hard to say goodbye to my parents and I miss them dearly, but we’re already preparing for and counting down the days until they arrive in Brazil.

I am so blessed to say that I have not one, but two extraordinary families!
