What does exist is that place where you were happy.

A sign you are getting better is when you care less what others think of you.
Today was mostly about a birthday, not mine but an early Miss-9-celebrating-10. Her birthday falls in the school holidays and she has made some precious school friends here in the city.
It was all about water fights and laughter, a toast made with plastic goblets, and gifts that made her swoon.
It was a good day here in the flatlands of Belgium.
Oh, and about this Flemish side of Belgium, the place where I live ... VRT News channels made this. It so captures the Flemish I know. They have their serious face ... and then there is this crazy-beautiful side that I sometimes forget about.
On my facebook page I wrote, 'One of the biggest secrets about Belgium is how amusing and wicked the Flemish folk are. VRT-Nieuws is our news channel of choice and it was hilarious (and yet unsurprising) to see them ALL dancing to Happy here. They wear a serious face oftentimes but scratch the surface and ... well, you get a sense of them here. Loved this.'
