Let’s go fly a kite

Up to the highest height! Sorry, I’ve been singing that song all day, so I’m passing the torch. That’s how it works, right? It better.

Sunny? Check. Free Sunday afternoon? Check. To the beach! Everyone got a turn at the fancy kite, but please notice everyone’s form. Gracefully in control of both handles by their side. Oh..wait..not – yep. I’m the one with the arms flailing and the kite nose diving into the ground. Time after time, too.

Next week, we’ll be posting our wedding photos for our one year anniversary (!!). Cannot wait for you all to share in our wonderful day!

Does that make sense? Okay, so maybe neither of us have a solid excuse. But we live in Brussels, so we could have them any time we want. bam. Plus! Belgium is known for, like, everything good – chocolate, beer, fries, and waffles….so we’ve got 3 of the 4 (and the extra lbs to show for it.)

There are two types and a full-on rivalry of Belgian waffles between two cities – Brussels and Liege. The Brussels waffle is lighter, crisper and has larger pockets with rectangular sides. The Liege waffle is richer, thicker, and chewier and contains chunks of sugar inside that caramelize…now does it make more sense why we’d be excited about this one?  Continue reading
