Garden Exploration

• 14 October 2009

Spending a few days in Belgium with my in-laws was a fantastic way to end our stint in France. It was so nice to see family and we felt incredibly lucky to be so close. I cried when I saw them--I just couldn't believe we were visiting family...in Europe of all places! Our days with them strengthened and buoyed us before traveling a long 28 hours home with the 3 little ones. In addition, I think we understood each other better after both living in Europe for the same amount of time (they left when we did but we hadn't had time to see them until this point).

Here are some images we took at some gardens in Brussels and the Botanical Gardens in Leuven--a great town I can't wait to visit again.

Oh, these photos are so inspiring! And, well timed. ;-) I've been debating buying concert tickets to Brussels next September and these few shots have just convinced me. I'm grabbing those tickets while I can!

Your in-laws are so wonderful. Your MIL took a picture for us last year in England with a big row of trees like that and it is a treasure. I think of her when I look at it. Give them our best!
