This weekend we went on a short trip to CHAMPAGNE with HANNE. It was kind of a spontaneous trip; the drive from BRUSSELS is quite short, about three hours, we all love Champagne ..and HANNE had never been there before. The thing that struck me most on this trip was how the atmosphere and colors were so different from the last time we were there. It was amazing to see how the landscape changes; THE COLORS and THE VINES. Last time we went to CHAMPAGNE it was very lively; it was SPRING, SUNNY and WARM, everything was starting to bloom and there were YELLOW FLOWER FIELDS everywhere. This time the atmosphere was so toned down, calm and quiet. For fun we decided to stop by a spot where we had a beautiful PICNIQUE last year. Even though I think most of us will prefer the spring version, I still loved the spot the way it looked now too.  ... STILL ...comparing this trips pictures with last years ones makes me exited about the hopefully soon upcoming spring! You can see pictures of the spring version of the spot HERE and HERE. ( I even did a 'door shot' when I was there ..since I remembered that I took one last time..)

As some of you might have noticed we are spending this week in BXL, in my friend HANNE's townhouse. She got back from Norway yesterday so up till then we have been babysitting her house(not that it was needed..). Since we got here I have not really had any time to see much of the city ..because I have been working on some pictures that had a deadline today. So I have mainly been seeing my computer, E and the inside of the house ..but I have not been bored because ..among other reasons .. I find so many nice colors and motives in and around the house that I want to photograph. Well, the sun is up so I will try to take some new pictures while my deadline photos upload to DROPBOX. Have a nice Monday everyone:)

Yesterday E took me out for a surprise dinner at a restaurant that we both have been wanting to visit for a long time; PARIS-MOSKAU. I call it the restaurant at the end of the world because it is located in a nice little house ..and the house is located almost on a cliff, next to a gigantic construction site. I think they are building a huge government building there ..but right now there is just a big crater of sand, machines and bright construction site lights. The little house has a very ROALD DAHL kind of feel to it. Well, enough about the house, the food was really good, and to make the Valentine atmosphere complete the guy at our neighbor table proposed to his date ..and she said yes; they looked very happy and kept it as private as possible in a restaurant. I sat there remembering when E proposed to me, feeling happy for them, and happy that it was not me being proposed to at a restaurant on Valentines Day, I don't know, that is just one of those things that would have made me feel really awkward, luckily E and I are on the same page there.
