What time is it in Sao Paulo?

You're probably expecting a Valentine's Day post today, right?  I do love this and am celebrating allllll day long by eating way too many sweets, but in the meantime, other exciting events are taking place!

It's a monumental week for one of my best friends, Ashley and her husband, Michael.

Ashley was one of my original DC roommates.  I only have a few friends like her--she is always ready to listen, quick to offer good advice and promises to pray for me, whatever the circumstance.  She is a constant source of encouragement.  She never shies away from speaking the truth.  She is the epitome of a lady who is beautiful inside and out.

Ashley married Michael, who has also become a dear friend, in April of 2010.  They moved to San Francisco, but we have kept in touch and seen each other several times since then despite the distance.  Michael is a lawyer for Jones Day and just got transferred to their Sao Paulo office--a dream that he and Ashley have been pursuing for some time now.  As sad as it makes me to know they are so far away, I am so happy for them.  I have no doubt that they will take the city by storm and rise to any challenge they are presented.

In tribute to their new city, I added Sao Paulo to my "World Clock" page on my phone, so I can always know what time it is there.

If you want to follow their adventures or read up on how they got to this point, please visit Ashley's blog: Jeans & a T-shirt.

Farewell, friends!  See you when I step off the plane in Sao Paulo at some point...
