Best things about being stationed in SHAPE, Belgium

It’s now been almost two years since my husband was stationed in SHAPE, Belgium.  It was definitely a unique assignment.  There was a US Army base at Chievres and then a NATO base with soldiers and servicemembers from dozens of different European nationalities only 30 minutes away.  It was an adjustment to say the least [...]

Round Up #44

I am home sick for the second day, and what am I doing?  Trolling around all over the internet…when I should be sleeping and trying to get rid of the yuck.  I could barely swallow yesterday, and I haven’t had a cold drink in two days either.  Obviously, I am going to have some things [...]

The ONE household item my friends in Belgium WISH they had brought with them
