December 15

Another round up of this month’s favourite moments. I don’t know how it happened, but there were so many this month. Too many to share, so here’s a selection. Enjoy!

IMG_2628Early Christmas parties with some of my uni friends

Night at the Museum/Museumnacht in Ghent. In some of the Downton Abbey scenery followed by some high tea in the beautiful Sint Pietersabdij

IMG_2890
Booking a trip to Canada (and a tiny tiny bit of the US) next summer!
6 weeks, 2 countries, lots of places. Can’t wait!

Building a gingerbread house with these nutters.

Putting up the Christmas tree. And potentially, maybe, possibly eating some of its decorations (talking about the candy canes, guys, calm  down)

IMG_2810
Celebrating the Swedish holiday, Lucia at the Scandinavian department of my university.  (more about this celebration here)

IMG_2886
Gabrielle Aplin’s new album. No explanation needed here.

Exploring a bit of Brussels in its Christmassy atmosphere.

And then onto Leuven.

IMG_2897
Popping over to Barcelona (aka our student restaurant ‘De Brug’ in Ghent) to see Kaatje, my fave.

IMG_2878
Another weekend, another quiz. Am I starting to take after my dad? Is this really happening?

Trying something new: experimenting with make-up.

Mexican dinner date with Mum. She’s really keen on the nachos as you can probably tell by the look on her face.

Getting this kind of mail! All the way from Canada. Love it.

Exams. THE WORST TIME. But also the best when your mum brings home some fruity goodness. Having a berry good time. Right, I said it. I don’t apologise for puns.

Watching the Downton Abbey finale. Last episode ever. EVER. This called for a glass of wine.

And finally, the privileges of getting up early to study.
Not bad, not bad at all.

See you in the new year!

Love,
