We made it to Brussels! And finally I’m awake enough now to tell you about the last few weeks! Things were pretty crazy for us- I had my last day at work on the 21st (hooray!), and then we went to Atlantic City for my brother’s bachelor
party pleasant weekend (total DANCE party) and then we had 4 days to finish moving our crap out of our house and pack (decisions, decisions!) which was easier said than done.
We barely finished everything with about 1.5 hours left to say goodbye to our fur baby, drop off our car, and managed to catch our red eye flight. My parents and Mike’s parents were SUPER awesome helping us get ready to make the trip, we can’t thank them enough. Once we got here we unloaded our stuff and walked around to explore a bit, trying to stay awake for as long as we could- we crashed around 3pm. After sleeping for several hours we made ourselves get up and go find some dinner. But first, outfit photos were taken…
We were asked by some girls to take their photo (in French!) so I asked them to take our photo too (in English!)

We are beyond excited that we get to call this place home for the next 6 months- we still keep looking at each other like, is this real life? I’m trying to take it all in one baby step at a time, reminding myself this is really happening. I’m here on my own for a few days while Mike is in Geneva for work (I’ll meet him there on Wednesday!), so wish me luck being an American thrifty girl in Belgium!
