It's "3 sleeps to Rio," but mashing it up with "3 sheets to the wind" makes me laugh. I'm not staggering (yet), but may be getting a little punch-drunk!
The extended forecast in Rio, for as far as I can see, is for temps in the 80s (F) and scattered or PM thunderstorms every single day! I was bummed about that for a bit, but the partial sun peeking out from behind the clouds and raindrops made me feel a little better, and I also realized that it also means dramatic weather. I do so love dramatic weather!
Dramatic weather in the mid-Atlantic rainforest? I'll try it!
Annie sent me this morning's photo of the boys in the pool, above, and said that the forecast for today was also rain; it was over by 9 a.m., though, and had been mostly sunny since!
I know the weather can change in an instant, and I'm counting on a little bit of everything — and trying to prepare.
Meanwhile, after last week's "January thaw," the temp plunged over the weekend and it was cold outside!
I had an outdoor photo shoot tentatively scheduled for Saturday afternoon. It was iffy in the morning, but was better by afternoon and it was a "go." The young woman has been Ali's BFF since high school and she works part-time at the coffee shop. I've taken photos of her family a few times over the past couple of years. Her boyfriend called me to schedule a couple's session – at least that's what he told her – for her birthday. In reality, he was going to propose and I was in on it (and in possession of a HUGE secret)!
I don't think I have to tell you that she said YES!
Or that they're both ridiculously happy.
And also adorable.
LOVE! Ain't it grand?
