A wedding, a much needed break and gifts from Brazil!

The first time I went to Brazil in 2006 I felt surprisingly at home. I was visiting my best friend from college and we went on a road trip for nearly a month. I was in love. The people, the culture, the football (watching the World Cup in Brazil was the craziest experience!), samba, caipirinhas and the food (oh the FOOD!) So when the same friend announced that she was getting married I couldn't pack my bags fast enough!
The last few months were a bit difficult for me and I couldn't wait to get away. I left the keys to Le15 in the skilled and trusting hands of my mother, sat on that plane and turned my phone off. The days that followed were blissful!

The wedding was one of the most beautiful ceremonies I've ever been to and managed to resurrect my faith in love. The trip was short, ten days is all I got but it was just what I needed to recharge my batteries :)
The location: Florianopolis 

Marcel and Jenai after the ceremony. 
The wedding cake!

Yes, we all went a bit crazy with the photo booth at the wedding!

However, Le15 was obviously always on my mind and so were you! I got some gifts back for a few lucky readers! If you like them and want to have them all you have to do is comment on this post and i'll send it over!
