April 2, 2016


March was a weird month. It started out pretty well with lots of eating out and meeting friends but took a turn for the worse about halfway through. You'll see why...

1. As I said, lots of eating out at first; here's my dessert after a night out with the boyfriend (chocolate!) // 2. Meeting up with friends I hadn't seen in some time (again, eating out) // 3. My mom, the boyfriend and I also went to a baking demonstration... The lady doing the demonstration is pretty hilarious // 4. And when I had half a day off, I discovered a store which had a shelf full of Nordic Ware... Unfortunately, not the one I was looking for // 5. Meeting up with other friends... This time we only had coffee (really great one by the way) // 6. Careless selfies with the boyfriend // 7. I was responsible for dinner; I made Belgian stew and mushroom soup // 8. Cute little Fons // 9. Something the boyfriend and I whipped together.. Turned out to be delicious! // ... 
... and then it seemed as if the world stopped making sense. Brussels was attacked and all of a sudden all this violence, war and terrorism came really close. Besides that, we had our own issues to deal with. On that same day, the doctor told us that my grandfather would probably not make it through the week. Unfortunately, he was right.

10. So, here's to my beloved grandfather. Being the best grandfather in the world always is a shared place and I'm happy to say that both of my grandfathers deserve that place. All I can say is that I will miss you and that I'm happy you're not suffering anymore. You put up a hell of a fight but we all understand you just couldn't keep fighting anymore. 

Ik zie u graag, maat.
