Ground Turkey Cabbage Skillet Primavera Kitchen Recipe

Hello, guys! How are you today?

Did you enjoy the Cinco de Maio celebrations with lots of Mexican food like guacamole and tacos?! I hope you had a better day that we had. Yesterday, we had a very bureaucratic day dealing with lots of papers at the Brazilian consulate. Why did we need to go to the consulate? So, this is probably the exciting news I want to share with you guys today.

In June my husband, my little baby and I are MOVING TO BRAZIL. Well, it is nothing permanent, but we will be living there for about 5 months. Isn’t that awesome?!! What are the reasons we are doing that now? First, I love Canada a lot and I am sure I’ll miss the Canadian summer, but since I had my little baby, I’ve been missing my family a lot (they are from Brazil). Every new thing my beautiful little boy does, I wish my family could see and share the special moments. Second, my husband is Canadian but he has business in Brazil, which allows him to work easily from there. And third, right now, I am not working because, in Canada, we have one-year maternity leave. I’ll go back to work only in February 2017 (if I decide to go back).

So, this is the perfect moment to go and spend more time with my family. Also, they can help me take care of my three year old boy and at the same time, my son will have the opportunity to be with his grandparents. It is going to be a good move for everybody! My husband had this idea to live in Brazil again for few months and I was very happy with that. My family is also very excited, especially my mom. She told me yesterday she is so happy that she is having trouble sleeping … hahhahahah!

That’s why we are preparing all the legal stuff to go like a passport for Thomas and visa for my husband. Since he is married to a Brazilian woman, he has the right to get his permanent visa. So yesterday, we spent a good part of the day trying to get all these documents ready at the Brazilian consulate. It all went well and we are receiving all the papers in the middle of the month. Now I have to start packing, which is something that I really don’t like to do, but I have to.
