This is my spot to collect all the amazing and beautiful things in my life.
A place to post my little roses.
My colourfull, sweet, soft, mysterious, ... experiences.
My roses with thorns that make me more carefull to hold and smell them. My roses who make me appriciate life more.
Dit is mijn doosje voor mijn roosje.
We celebrated that by spending some time in the sauna!
Another welcome present in these stressful times (dank je wel Grietje en Wim voor de bongo).
These days are of course full with goodbye's... Everyday another last visit...
Liesje, het was heel fijn je nog te zien. De volgende keer kunnen we met een glimlach terugkijken naar vandaag en trots zijn op onszelf!
Started the sunday off with a big, tasty and lovely breakfast!
Thank you friends for the wonderful time and the sweet gifts!
That strong breakfast proved to come at a good time... We cleared out the entire place...
I thought I didn't have much, but... How did I end up with that much stuff?
Oh well... It's all nicely stored in moeke and vakes attic.
Thank you Griet, Wim, moeke, vake and Tim!
And special "thank you" to you Ella for cheering the place up during all our hard work!
My challenge for this year is 'letting go',
this also means stuff I don't need no mo'.
This Wednesday I was on the other side
and put away all my pride.
No more looking for cool retro stuff to buy
but, and this is how I justify:
letting go and selling my shit,
because I no longer need it.
Valentines day is not such a big deal...
that`s why we just heated up leftovers and went to the supermarket.
Valentines day is commercial...
that`s what some Flemish political party proved when they handed out chocolates at the train station.
Valentines day is about love...
that`s what I noticed when I came home.
Sunday was Flemish movie night
= a big flemish movie,
+ "frikandellen met krieken"
+ a good "bierke"
+ some "carnavalsvlaaikes"
+ some good flemish company (the american fit right in)
Thank you moeke for the "frikandellen met krieken" en the taking care of the burned popcorn.
Thank you vake for fixing the DVDplayer so we could watch the movie and then to perform your magic again when the player decided to spit out the disc again.
Thank you Tim for the hugs and the occasional hand before my eyes.
The world became so much more beautiful and it got me all excited!
Not that I don't want to go jump around in it and make snowangels... But: I find myself so much more relaxed driving home on a day like this... Weird?
For me there is just less stress, less wishing that everyone would get out of the way, that they would drive faster or get off the road so I could have it all to myself.
I just enjoyed everything going slow, because there is now way going faster. And everything is so pretty!
I wanted to wave to everyone and smile and shout: "This is great, right!". I felt connected with all the people around me, like we were all sharing this amazing thing. I'm pretty sure not everyone feels this way...
I'm so grateful that I got snow and really cold temperatures before I leave...
It will be hard to imagine it being this cold in a few weeks when we are in warmer areas!
