Update from Brazil

Wow.

That's all I can say about this experience so far. Jenna and I are so excited and honored to be here to meet these wonderful people. Marta is the store owner of the adorable shop in Porto Alegre. This was our first place to teach. The store is darling. Modern. Colorful. Clean.




Here are some photos taken during the classes. We've taught 5 different ones so far and everyone has loved them. The ladies are adorable and so excited.



And, after our very last workshoppe at this store Marta and her mother popped open a bottle of champagne to celebrate and I just was so overwhelmed by everyone's happiness that I started to cry when we were saying ciao ciao to the customers. I really hope we can return here to teach again and have a great relationship with these awesome awesome women.

This makes me so happy.


Today we arrived in Rio De Janeiro. Isn't it beautiful? The weather is much warmer here. We had a fabulous dinner and are now preparing and unpacking our bags for our workshops in the morning. Wish you were here!
