Au revoir Bruxelles!

Rich and I are bidding farewell to Belgium tomorrow and it is such a bitter sweet feeling. I have been so anxious to get home this week that it has not hit me until today how sad I will be to say goodbye. Belgium has been an experience Rich and I will talk about for the rest of our lives. It truly has changed us. My eyes have been opened to so many things and the people we have met have made such an enormous impact on us. We have grown to love each and every one of them. We finished out our last day here, by running to the chocolate outlet to buy three huge boxes of chocolates for our friends and family who have heard us bragging about it since the day we arrived! Our friends Anja and Uros met us there and then we had lunch by the square one last time. We have a special place in our hearts for these two! They are such fun people and Anja and I have shared a dungeon of an office on our very own floor at work day after day laughing and trying our best to actually get some work done! It was a perfect end to our time here. Wish us luck hauling our four HUGE suitcases onto trains, buses, and metros tomorrow!

Christmas Fun in Belgium

This weekend Rich and I went with our friend Karolina to see the light show at the Grand Place and the Christmas markets. It was a freeeezzziinng cold night but the lights and decorations really got us in the Christmas spirit! Enjoy the video! (I wasn't thinking at the end and turned the camera for a different angle like a dork, but you get the idea!)Hope you all are having as much fun as we are shopping and getting ready for Christmas day!
