Hello dear friends, I hope you are all having a good first week of Feb 😊
Mine has been insanely (and I haaaaate using this word because it sounds so cliché but in this case it is true!) busy. And it’s only Thursday, lol. But I am leaving for Brussels tomorrow morning, so I’ve had to pack a lot into four days. I’ll be there visiting my mom, who works for a German organization based in Brussels. I’m really excited to see her and help her out, since she has been suffering from a painful arthritic knee that is in desperate need of replacement, and her pain has gotten a lot worse in the last month (she had to make an emergency trip home just last week).
Since my flight will arrive in Brussels quite early tomorrow morning, I’ll be working from my mom’s office, which is very close to her apartment. We’re going to spend the weekend getting some much-needed catch-up time. I saw her a lot over the break, of course, but we were a large group and I definitely did not get enough one-on-one time with my mama! I’m looking forward to shopping for delicious food (grocery stores in Brussels are so nice), watching Beaches or some other 80’s flick, and confirming our travel plans and setting personal goals for 2020.
I’ll be home Monday night, so it’s just a quick visit, but I’m always happy for a change of scenery for a few days (although I will of course miss my boys❤️).
Have a great weekend!
