Living the #jojolife - fresh, airy, open!

I've been really missing home. I miss the simple things - Simba (that cute little teddybear face), my house & car, personal space and more importantly Chipotle (haha). Personal space is something I cherish & something we definitely do not have while visiting family and working in Brazil. However, I wouldn't trade this time for anything It's such a blessing to have this time with my husband's family.


I went to this amazing open air market on Friday after the gym to kick it off this great weekend. I bought so many fresh fruits to enjoy during the weekend. I have a really big sweet-tooth so delicious, healthy & natural fruits are the perfect substitute for me. We all have our weaknesses, right?! 


But, Sunday was the real cherry on top. We went to one of my favorite places in Brasilia. One of our dear friends owns a gorgeous home up in the mountains. This is where I could spend the rest of my life. Poolside overlooking the beautiful vista while enjoying breakfast with family. We picked fresh bananas from the trees, meditated & dipped our toes in the pool. This is why I love Brazil...


Check out all the photos from this amazing weekend.

    I am obsessed with these leggings. Love them so much! Recently, you posted that the tie dye leggings would be coming back in limited quantity, but I never saw them come available on the order page. Will they be back again? I’m so disappointed that I missed out on them!
