Then I suddenly got invited to go back to Belgium and what could I say? So less than a month after we moved in, I left the unpacked boxes behind and went across an ocean for eight days. I'm definitely crazy. But it was wonderful, and now I am blogging about this instead!
(Oh, by the way, did you know I go there for work? Yes, I work part-time selling diamonds and fine jewelry. You can come see what I do here and here. I go with my Mother-in-Law, who works at this great jewelry store, and we travel with this great group called IJO).

Scenes from Brussels
|Love this pic. Rainy night in the square.|
Scenes from Bruges
|We took a tour of a brewery this time, so fun.|
|From the roof of the brewery.|
Scenes from Work
|Look how hard I'm working!|
|Standing in the Diamond District. Not as glamorous as it sounds.|
|A parcel of pears.|
|Fancy and round parcels.|
|All kinds of diamonds.|
|Rough diamonds. The brownish color is due to an oily coating, and doesn't reflect the final color of the cut diamonds.|
|This is what 9,715.70 carats of rough diamonds looks like. Yes, you read that number right.|
So that about sums it up! I have been back for a week and I might finally be adjusted. Will be back tomorrow with a product review. Love y'all!
