Palacio Garibaldi - Our reception location.

Rosario Catholic Church - Our ceremony location.

I´m so happy and excited about my wedding. But OMG its so much work to plan a wedding. I´m so stress out. So i´ve decided to leave most of the planning to my wedding planner. Even tho I´m a control freak. I´m so nervous about how thing will turn out. Just to remind everyone Im a American-Bolivian and my fiance is Brazilian and our wedding is here in Brazil so we are really trying not to forget all of our traditions.
We have already chosen our beautiful church to have the ceremony and the most amazing reception location. Im just so happy with our decision and both location are located in the historic plaza here in Curitiba. We really want a tradicional and very romantic wedding. I guess me more than him. He just wants to me to be happy. Oh and of course his only worry is the sweets table. LOL Sinces his a sugar lover.
Ill keep everyone posted and if you have any suggestion about wedding website please let me know. I still have a lot to do for my wedding so any suggestion will help.

Playful Learning

As most of you probably don't know but I'm a mom of a 6 year old little girl. I just found this wonderful website
Is hard enough to teach a little one to read and write but its even harder trying to teach her to read and write in 3 languages. And it's not that we just want to teach her 3 languages we kind of have to we live in Brazil and my hubby is Brazilian so there goes the Portuguese, she was born in the US and I'm proud to be an American-Bolivian so that's where the English and Spanish come in. But I'm sure everything will fall into.
So excited about this site it will help us out and I'm sure shes going to love it seen shes just a craft and art kid. And I'm sure I will to seen shes going to be learning. The best thing to do when teaching your children is playing with them cause they love to play:) At least mine does.

WHY!!!! WHY!!! WHY!!!! Today is just not my day. I just want to scream and tell the world everything. And for some reason I can't. Why, cause its family and your supposed to love and respect your family. But i guess some people are to selfish to realize that. But when they do realize it's going to be to late. So sad:(

Love...... Love ...... Love ......

Give me my Romeo; and, when he shall die,
Take him and cut him out in little stars,
And he will make the face of heaven so fine
That all the world will be in love with night,
And pay no worship to the garish sun.
O! I have bought the mansion of a love,
But not possess'd it, and though I am sold,
Not yet enjoy'd.

Saudades.....Missing my friends and family back in DC!!!

So today is one of those days where I'm missing eveyone in DC. I just love DC!!! But I guess it takes time to get used to a new city and new life. But I'm the most unpatience women in this earth. LOL So today I was chatting with my cyber date (my lovely cousin). And I quote her "That's our new girls night out, we get dressed up and drink our martinis while we chat. LOL" I absolutely love her she just makes me smile and reminds me everyday that its a good thing that I'm moved to Brazil. I guess she now why. I guess we both do ;) But anyways I guess I end this post with a smile. I MISS YOU!!!
p.s the pictures is the view from my guest bedroom. The Trade Center.

Welcome to my BLOG!!!!

So excited about my new blog. This will be my therapy. I just moved to Curitiba, Brazil and I'm missing my friends and family like crazy. I lived most of my life in the DC metropolitan area and now I'm across the continent. But its all worth it cause I'm closer to my love. Starting a new life and a new adventure in this wonderful country. Just moved to my new apt. Can't wait to start decorating. Pictures of my new place coming soon......
