The toughest decisions I had to make in my life were the ones that helped me be where I’m at today

It all started in 2015, when I realized that I didn’t want to stay in my corporate job forever.

Something had to change.

I didn’t wanna work in another job.

Although it would’ve been much safer, knowing that I had still my student loan to pay.

But anyway…

I wanted to feel free.

I wanted to give myself time to reflect on my life and to decide what I wanted to do next.

After spending so many years pursuing what I thought was my dream, I realized that actually I didn’t know myself enough.

I had no passion, no hobbies, … I had no idea of what kind of job could fulfill me.

So I decided to travel solo in South America.

It didn’t make sense to anyone but that’s what I felt like doing.

It was exciting and scary at the same time.

I could barely speak Portuguese and Spanish but whatever…

I thought I’ll find a way to figure things out once I’m there.

On my first day, I met with Davidson.

It wasn’t love at first sight but he surely made me feel special since day 1.

Falling in love had never been part of my plan, and actually it was off the table 😂

The solo trip was about me and me only. I didn’t want to fall in love with someone and get my heart broken again.

But I just couldn’t get him out of my head and after a couple of months, we decided to try building something together.

5 years fast forward

We’re happily married since 2018 and expecting our second baby in a couple of months.

And after spending 3 years living at my parents in France and 6 months at Davidson’s parents in Matupá, Brazil, we’re now living on our own in Cuiabá, Brazil since October 2020.


Our time in Cuiabá will be shortly lived because we’ve decided to come back in Matupá in a couple of weeks.

The decision wasn’t easy to make. There were so many options to consider and nothing seemed to be the right one until recently.

When you feel at peace, that’s when you know you’re on the right track.

And that’s exactly how we feel.

Suddenly, things are much clearer in our heads and we’re finally able to visualize how the next chapter of our lives will be…

…until the next crossroad.
