Better head back to Tennessee

La Vie Belge is on the clock.

In two months, our time living in Brussels will be up. We’ve known that for a little while now and have told family and some friends, but this past week really solidified that we can call Belgium our home for only a short while longer.

I’ve never gotten into too much detail about Jenna’s day-to-day job responsibilities, but essentially she adds, subtracts (and does a few other mathematical procedures) while helping oversee International Paper’s European operations. IP, as it’s known, has a large office in Brussels, but its world headquarters is in Memphis.

Jenna’s employer, Deloitte, is now sending her ā€” us ā€” to Memphis, where she’ll crunch numbers at IP’s home office. We’ll be moving there come May 31, and we got an extended sneak peek of our new home this past week. We even might’ve found our new home, though as any home-buyer knows, there’s several steps along the way before you move in.

I’ll save my nostalgia and reminiscing for a later blog. As much as I enjoyed seeing and exploring Memphis over the past 7-8 days, when we move back to the states, we are leaving our home behind. I’ve grown to love Brussels and Belgium, and it’s not just because of the beer and the fact I’ve been living a semi-retired life.

But more on that later. Over the next couple days, I’ve got some catching up to do about some recent travels and events both in Brussels and some escapades around Europe.

    Europe will not feel the same. We have loved having you guys so “close” to us. Maybe one more trip in you…? We would love for you to see our new place.
