Hello, guys! WE’RE BACK in Canada again after almost 6 months living in Brazil and visiting some countries in South American. I’m having a mix of feelings since I left Brazil. Part of me wanted to be there with my family and the other part wanted to be in Canada. I guess these are the feelings we all have when we live abroad and far away from our families. But when I opened the door of my home I felt like I’ve never left. It was like I went to Brazil one day and the next day I was back. There was a funny feeling.

I’m exhausted! After a 10 hour flight the only thing that crossed my mind was: “I need my bed badly!!!” I couldn’t sleep on the plane because Thomas woke every hour. But when we got home we slept together (my husband, my baby boy and me) for about two hours. Hum… It felt so good! We all were needing this nap. But I just could do that because my mother-in-law and my father-in-law came from Montreal to Toronto the day before to clean the house, to do groceries and to cook for us. We are so lucky for having them in our lives! I feel so blessed for having in-laws that are like my mother and father for me.
 
Although I loved to be these past 6 months in Brasil, Argentina and Uruguay, I have to say that I love to be in Canada again. Like I said a piece of my heart stayed here. So, I missed my friends, my home, my mattress and of course my kitchen.
