fact friday rio: feel-good vibes

Rio is a feel-good city.

I don’t know about your neck of the woods, but my neck of the woods could use some feel-good vibes.

I’m dedicating each of these vibes to just a few of the lovelies in my life. Pick and choose your favorites, and let me know what you love!

  1. I love you! And your trip to Rio!
    If you want to get out of the house this weekend, just let me know. We’ll be running around the yard, but you’re always welcome to hang out and chat, make fun of us, etc. ❤

  2. Emily, that’s what I was going to say!

    I love how you gave me a little taste of Rio and how it influences pop culture. I can’t wait to see what your photos and experiences of Rio will be like!

  3. Ohhhh Shannon thank you! I love YOU! And when you come over, I’m totally making that drink… looks amazing and summery!

  4. I was wondering why I felt so upbeat lately. And to think I was just reading my latest Martha Stewart Living magazine last night in bed… (what can I say, I’m a wild woman)!

  5. lmao PERFEITO shannonzinha!! Obrigada for the laugh (HILARIO!) and for those good vibes 🙂
    we’ve got to start thinking of names for our trip album– diposible camera adventures perhaps?
    the sun is shining, the weather is sweet and so are you! energy is coming right back your way!
    te amo minha querdia!

    • obrigado amor!! You were in my dream last night. We were traveling and I did cartwheels in a giant empty room with red carpet. “Cartwheel” in portugues could be our title… (carrete das rodas?) I also like “the sun is shining.” besos!
