I am getting a questionable mole removed in a month, so maybe sun-worshipping is not something I should do anyway. Forget you, Irish heritage. Forget you.
Nonetheless, I am itching for warmth and the chance to put on a sundress. I'm dying to read books that I choose, and not ones assigned by the behemoth that is the school schedule. I highly anticipate the ability to write more often and to occasionally zone out over some Gilmore Girls and iced coffee.
All this will come in four weeks when I move away from here. I'm hitting the hot Alabama summer, and I'm so excited. However, there are a lot of things I'll miss about Belgium. Of course, I will miss my best friends and my parents so very much, but these are just some little things...
I'll miss how charming everything looks, from nature to the stones.
I'll miss the beautiful churches. There's just something about worshipping, or even just thinking, in a massive, spectacular cathedral.
I'll miss the architecture. Art Nouveau is stunning, and it's very prevalent here in Belgium. It's definitely a favorite.
I'll miss the food. Twice-fried french fries with mayonnaise? Chocolate? Caramelized waffles? A bunch of other caloric nightmares? I mean, come on. (I will not, however, miss the impact these have on the fit of my pants.)
I'll miss city living. Just a little. I do really enjoy being out of the city, too, but having access to great stores and lots of stuff is always fun. I'm not always a city girl, but it definitely has its perks.

I'll miss European washers/dryers. Oh wait, no I won't.
(P.S. I just had my good friend, Brittany, over for the weekend and we had a blast! I love her blog and it has inspired me to pick up the old pen that is Blogspot once more. She writes here and you should check it out. I think I'll try to document her time here at some point!)
