Week One - Check!
Schmoly cow. We live in Europe. Quite often we find ourselves realizing this..although rarely at the same moment, so the convo usually sounds a bit like:
J: OMG! We like totes live in Europe!! A: Uhhh, duh. ..2.5 minutes later.. A: OMG! We freaking live in Europe! Disclaimer - J might not actually say things like 'OMG! We like totes..'
In any case, here's our little week ..
Thursday: We found our new home!!..but more to come on that later. Thanks to our lovely new Belgian friend, we had our first official Aperol, which is an Italian aperitif, in an Italian bookshop during book club hour - it was incredibly noisy and European..super cool.Friday: J's uncle signed up to teach him how to drive a standard. I opted out of today's lesson to blog..much more calming/less dangerous. Friday evening we signed up for a Brussels Greeter through the Tourist Bureau. Our sweet tour guide took us on a promenade around our new home - after lots of parks and architecture, we talked her into grabbing a drink at Flagey, where we ran into her other American friends and it turned into a fun little Happy Hour..we're settling in quite nicely.We discovered lots of hidden parks and decided that school, like most, totally trumps our elementary school.Apparently this door is on Pinterest.Phew! Au Revoir!A
