Brussel Sprout

(recipe not included)


As if getting married and moving to a foreign country isn't a big enough adventure... we're amping it up even more...

So dear friends, while we'd much rather be announcing this to you personally, sitting together on the living room sofa, or lingering around the dining table long after a delicious feast has been enjoyed, savoring every last crumb of cake... We have no choice but to share our joyful news via the flamingoblog:





We're having a baby! 




Our little Brussel Sprout is due to join us mid-October, and we couldn't be more excited. We're still not sure what our plans will be after Didz graduates at the end of August... we may stay here, we may head home, we may go somewhere new... but for now we're enjoying the Belgian springtime with this little bump under my shirt :)

    1. Thank you darling - admittedly, the bump is probably more chocolate & waffles than baby at this point, but yeah, it's pretty darn cute :)

    1. Aciu! It's very strange to think next time we see each other I might be a mama already (unless we do one more trip to TO at the end of summer when I'm huge)...

  3. A BABY POTATO PANCAKE!!!

    Congrats and big huge huge hugs to you both (well, 3!!!). "Leffe" would be an appropriate name. Or something like Waffle. Or Essentiel. This'll surely be the best, most beautiful souvenir ever.

    Cannot wait to see you again and meet your petit chouffe!

    1. It's a good thing you came to visit when you did - cause now going into Essentiel just depresses me since I can't fit into any of the fabulousness anymore... they should really come out with a maternity line!
