Today I am grateful for

dinner with my dearest at Nostradam, the little restaurant of a dear friend and his husband. Both are very talented people. If you’d ever be in Mechelen (a great city to visit, I wrote about it here), make sure you treat yourself and your senses with one of Nostradam’s delicious meals and/or desserts and/or coffees. Food and service are excellent! And … I love the way it’s decorated: warm, cosy and inviting.

Thank you Miguel and Steve: we had a lovely evening!


Today I am grateful for

the warm evening light.

Today I am grateful for this candle, which is always burning during my late night ritual and gives me a warm and safe feeling just before I go to bed.

Today I am grateful for seasonal decoration and warm autumn light.

Wishing you a cosy WE!


Today I am grateful for this beautifully designed package. I had to spend hours and hours in hospital today because of a sudden pain in my foot and leg, and because of my situation taking risks is really too dangerous. Fortunately none of the doctors found anything alarming … When I left home for going to the hospital, I already saw the big envelope in my mailbox but I decided to wait to open it until I’d be back. To have something to looking forward to, no matter what …

Do you want to know what is inside? Of course you want to … Well, let’s have a look!

Isn’t it cute? I am so happy with it. The lovely Lily from The red notebook made this colourful bag and did a give away last week.  By the way, if you don’t know Lily’s blog, make sure to have a look! It’s a must! When I saw these little wise animals I felt in love immediately. You can imagine how lucky I feel to be the winner of this handmade bag. And the owls? They are getting ready to explore their new Belgian home and surroundings …

Oh, I just realized this already is the start of the fifth week of our grateful project. My conclusion until now: each day I am getting more and more conscious about the abundance of things and people I am and feel grateful for … In fact, it’s rather difficult to choose only one thing to post, instead of some … My personal gratitude journal is growing and growing and I really love this feeling of being grateful … It’s as the Universe is smiling brightly at me and I love and cherish this feeling. I am grateful for it, very grateful …

Wishing you all a cosy and colourful autumn WE! Treat yourself with a walk through nature and have a conscious look at its beauty! You will see: the Universe is not only smiling at me …

Today* I am grateful for the warm evening light. We visited an art gallery where the father of a friend exposed and the light was amazing. And so is his art. If you want to know more about about the artist, Irénée Duriez, just have a look at his website and/or google his name and ‘images’ and enjoy the beauty of the fruits of his artistic talent.
