To the city of decadence...

Pierre Marcolini
As in tasty decadence!  We are off to Brussels this weekend.  I am so exited!  This will be our first real trip together.  
Our uncle is turning 60 and he will be celebrating it in Brussels, where he's been living and working for the past four years.  We've been there once before, for a very short time, but it was enough for it to win my heart.  And how could it not?  It is such a underrated city!  I didn't know what to expect then.  I went as a blank board, only to find a beautiful charming town, with the best beer, food and chocolate!  The whole place smells like chocolate and waffles.  It was really a charming place.  Too bad I didn't take any pictures!  Anyways, this time, I will have my camera with me and I will take lots to pictures to share.  
So this will be a weekend of decadence, with the best chocolate in the world, the best beer and great company.  A well deserved vacation for this mamma.
Just the thought of Pierre Marcolini washes away any anxiety I have about travelling in an airplane with a 5 month old!


  1. Five months old is the best age ever! After that you'll have to wait a looooong time to be relaxed in an airplane again....

  2. It was great!!! Perfect age as you say!
