Thanks so much for all the support and advice yesterday, kiddos. I know I say all the time how grateful I am for the amazing little community I’ve somehow been lucky enough to foster with this blog, but seriously. I mean it. You guys are the best. I’ve reconciled my decision to not do a weekly music post by deciding to do a monthly music post, or an occasional music post. And maybe an occasional homage to “Careless Whisper.” That might actually be the best song ever.
This trip is feeling more and more real to me. Last night I used google maps to “walk” from the metro in Paris to our hotel, and from our hotel in Brussels to a Lambic brewery where we’ll be taking a tour. I realized that aside from a few main attractions (ahem, visiting Ladurée 5 times a day and seeing the Design Museum in Gent), the entire vacation is open to as much wandering tiny backstreets and lazing in cafes and bars as we feel like. I say that, and then remember I’m traveling with someone who pops awake at 6:30 every morning with more energy than I’ve ever mustered about anything, ever. Oy.
I have two Like a Pictures for you today.
I love how the stitching on that blanket mimics the square pavers on the sidewalk. The Met has never looked prettier as far as I’m concerned.
Spring time in Sweden. Aren’t those cherry blossoms so soft and beautiful? And the way the light streams through in speckles? Amazing. I’m just noticing now that the perspective of both photos are very similar, but almost reversed. Total coincidence, though I’d like to think I’m that talented.
How is everyone doing this Thursday? I’m heading to lunch with a bunch of coworkers today to enjoy the nice weather we’re finally having. And speaking of weather, because I’ve been checking compulsively, the forecast calls for rain pretty much all the time everywhere we go in Belgium and Paris. Which isn’t making me crazy or anything. Good thing I bought a waterproof trench coat (and ironed it!).
