2nd Christmas in Brussels

Time has flown by.  Can’t believe this is the second Christmas we spend in Belgium.   We found an evening to go shopping for Xmas gifts and then visits Brussels downtown.  And we started by feasting on Haagen Daazs ice-cream.  Ah, I just love their ice-creams….

visiting the Christmas market reminded me of my very first visit to Belgium, 7 years ago.

delicious christmas market street food.

We started a new tradition in our first christmas here last year.  An american style pot-luck dinner with dear friends.  This year it was at Anje’s charming vintage filled home.
