We're here! :)

Hello, everybody!!!

So here we are... After a very pleasant bus trip that last 6 hours through beautiful roads (Lucas on his on seat by my side for the first time!), with thankfully a great weather, we arrived around 7pm and Rodrigo was already waiting for my at the bus station. I had nothing less than 8 cases for him to carry!!! I brought as much as possible, among clothes, personal stuff, my handcraft things (of course), some of Lucas's toys, his clothes, presents we got at Christmas...

We're adapting well to our new life. As you know, by now, we're living at my in-laws' house, and they are so sweet they don't know what to do to please us and make us comfortable. Lucas is obviously enjoying each minute, playing around with the many dogs and cats his grandma owns.

The weather here is great but with occasional storms that leave the roads completely full of mud, so we bought for ourselves pairs og plastic boots to walk around, otherwise our sneakers would be on waste too soon!!

Our house is already being built, and they're working really hard and so well & fast! My father-in-law is working everyday, with Rodrigo' and his brother plus three assistants. The guys are fantastic, hard-workers and never complaining, even though they are neglecting their own business to have our place ready for us to live. I'm forever in debt with them.

There base was built, lifted half meter from the ground to avoid humidity, and the rooms were divided, with some walls already half-built. Lucas spread little bits of sea salt in each room for protection on the New Moon afternoon, and today I need to buy a little glass bottle to make my witch's bottle and bury it on the entrance. One incredible thing is that right in front of the house there's a big cinnamon tree, with two nests on the branches. I just loved to see it, and that they didn't put it down (it's not dangerous for the house structure). On the left of the terrain is Rodrigo new coffee plantation, and he's excited to finally be able to take care of it. The kitchen's window will face the plantation, so everytime I'm at the sink, I'll watch it. Cute, isn't it?

I already know where I can have my real herbs garden, and I keep dreaming of how things will look like when finally ready. We have so many plans!

Yesterday I took some photos, but the camera is my sister-in-law's and she still needs to have it loaded, so unfortunately I can't show you anything yet. As soon as possible they'll be here.

I looooooooved all the sweet words you all left. I feel blessed to have friends like you guys.

Take good care and may this new year be everything you imagined!!

Kisses from us, here in Alto Jequitiba city! :o)

Oh! You didn't tell us you were moving to paradise! Are there angels playing in the cinnamon tree or laughing in the field? :)

That's so awesome! I am so happy you have made it safe and your new home is being built solidly and quickly!

How wonderful! :)

Hi Nydia...I think you sure chose a beautiful place to settle! I did not know you were going to grow coffee, how lovely! There is nothing like a new house, either! Can't wait to see the pictures when you get a chance to upload them from your sister-in-law's camera!

So wonderful to hear from you sweet Nydia, I miss you too. I'm glad that your home is being built and you're already getting the garden ready in your mind. So happy to hear the cookies are such a big hit, those are definitely one of our favourites! I'm so glad that they are so popular.

I'm so happy for you! This will be so great when you get all moved in and set things up. It makes my heart smile to see how great things are going for you. I'm glad Lucas is having a blast playing with all the animals! Hopefully things will start turning around here in my corner.

Big hugs and wishes for a great year!!
