Shipping to Brazil!

I was thrilled yesterday to get an order from a buyer in BRAZIL! I just LOVED filling out that custom form and sending it on it's way. I've shipped Internationally before - to Canada, UK and Australia. But Brazil is extra special to me.

My father spent two years in Brazil in the 70s (before I was born) so I was raised with a tiny bit of Brazilian culture. Mostly the food! We had Brazilian rice and beans more times than I could count. He also made a fabulous Brazilian drink for us. Oh, I wish I could remember what it was called!
My parents also had a foreign exchange student live with them the year after I left home. Zeila became like another daughter to them. I didn't really get the opportunity to get to know her that well, since I was living across the country, but she did come to my wedding.

Anyway, I just think it's awesome that I got to send a Zadyball somewhere that has such fond memories for me!
Check out my updated Zadyball Locations map!

Congratualtions! I read yr feature & left this at Maternal Spark : My little ones have grown & not so little anymore. But I know that they would have been big fans of Zadyballs!
