Christmas Special: My 7 Biggest Lessons from 2017

I want to start by saying…Merry Christmas and happy holidays! I hope you’re having a fantastic time with the people you both love and tolerate (often one and the same lol) and are ready to enjoy a good few days of indulging and relaxing.

For my part, I am currently in the cold, New York, visiting Gisele’s family.

We had a Christmas party, Brazilian style and it was a lot of fun. It felt like Christmas when I was a kid. I’m so grateful to be a part of that. Here’s a pic of us.
