Last weekend there was yet another glorious Brazilian holiday. I’m not exactly sure what this holiday is for but I have heard rumblings that it is in celebration of the Virgin Mary as the Patron Saint of Brazil, whatever that means. Regardless, for me, it was a sweet escape from the city to spend a weekend laying in hammocks, eating amazing food, snuggling with puppies and hanging out with friends.
One of our friends down here has been working tirelessly updating, renovating, furnishing and building on an incredible property in the countryside of São Paulo. His family purchased a gorgeous estate and he has been working hard to make it absolutely out-of-this-world. Because it is a personal property I don’t want to overshare photos of every single room, but trust me…it was unreal. Michael and I both said that we had never been anywhere like it.
Here are some snapshots of the weekend that included 14 friends, lots of incredible home-cooking, a boys’ golfing trip, silly pool-games, little hikes around the property, and lots of lazy fun.
And tell me. What could possibly be better than ending the weekend with a bunch of brand new, cuddly PUPPIES?!?!
