It's been... a week. PageYourself entered the big leagues and I spearheaded the prep and celebratory efforts en anglais. Exciting, huh? Stressful, too. I've been more than hoping for a holiday (in the UK-sense, thus, a vacation). And since I haven't gotten away since August, even a 48-hour change of scenery will suffice. Luckily, I have friends like Lara with family in Brussels who invited us to visit this weekend. Jackpot.

There'll always be "stuff," but life can be an awfully great adventure when we let it be.
