Orange Brazilian Wish Ribbon
Miami Beach, United States

474 Days—over 67 weeks. Today marks the day that the second of three Brazilian wish ribbons attached to my ankle have fallen off of their own accord.

Although I don't really recall exactly what the wishes were, I do remember that the three wishes made on the orange ribbon were about happiness (with health for the remaining white one, and business projects and financial prosperity for fallen blue ribbon).

My ankle is beginning to feel so naked. I'm already missing the colors.

I know you can buy these brazilian wish bracelets online at I just found out that a friend of mine had her wish come true the day the bracelet fell off. I am waiting for my purple bracelet to fall off and my wishes come true.

Ouch — US$60 for 12? You know these things are like $1 for 20 down there, right?

Price aside, the wish ribbons are a lot of fun. Glad you're having as much with yours.
