Pasta night! Vanessa's homemade bolognese sauce, paired with authentic pasta imported from Italy, freshly grated parmesan cheese, and a bottle of red wine from a vineyard in Italy that we visited last summer.
Deep-sea fishing between the stunning fjords of Lofoten.
We went deep-sea fishing on a traditional fishing boat similar to the one shown. Lofoten, Norway is known for its charming red buildings. The unique red color of the buildings is the result of using cod liver oil as paint, which provides protection against the harsh arctic climate.
Lofoten has a rich and storied fishing heritage. The fishing industry has its sustained local communities for generations.
The picturesque harbor of Svolvær in Lofoten, Norway. Lofoten is situated above the Arctic Circle and known for its picturesque fjords and rugged landscapes.
I love that my sons have become passionate about basketball. Having passions is important for our well-being and drives our personal growth. It helps us develop a sense of identity and belonging, and it often drives us to work harder and push ourselves to improve. Passions also encourage us to dream big. They open up new opportunities and connect us with like-minded people. Having passions and being passionate is so important in life, be it in sports or any other area.
We are celebrating a few birthdays with our family in Belgium. Lots of laughter and happy smiles.
Vanessa eating a frangipane while standing in the fireplace. We are in the process of downsizing the original, massive fireplace into a smaller one. We are also converting the open-faced fireplace to a closed one. The new fireplace will be both safer and more efficient.
This summer, we're moving out of the apartment that I've owned for almost twenty years. Leaving will be tough as we have made countless memories here. Before we move, I want to capture some photos of the things I love about our apartment, such as the warm afternoon light in the kitchen shown in this picture.
A glassblower at Simon Pearce in Vermont. I bought some handblown Negroni glasses.
We're spending the weekend at a remote cabin in Vermont. You can't tell from the photo, but the temperature dropped to -17°F (-27°C).
The winds are howling, the snow is swirling, and frost is creeping upon the cabin's windows. But a love for cooking means she is always exploring cookbooks.
The John Hancock Tower shines in the last sunlight of the day. At 60 stories and 790 feet (240 meters), it is the tallest building in Boston.
We recently visited Vanessa's parents. Their house holds great sentimental value as it not only served as Vanessa's childhood home, but also her father's. The property has been in the family for over 50 years. As we looked through old photographs, it became evident that countless birthdays and holidays were celebrated in their kitchen, adding to the warmth and nostalgia of the space.
In the queue to get de-iced.
The picturesque cobblestone streets of Durbuy.
Walking through the historic streets of Durbuy is a journey through time. The cobblestone roads and quaint architecture invite the imagination to wander, wondering about the stories and lives of those who lived here hundreds of years ago.
Durbuy is one of the smallest towns in Belgium, but has one of the best Christmas markets.
"L'épicerie de Durbuy" is a small specialty shop located in Durbuy. They offer artisanal products made locally in the Ardennes region. On our visit, we purchased some of their homemade pastis.
With only a few minutes to go before the start of the new year, Ben wanted to get the fire pit going so we'd stay warm while watching the fire works. Turns out you can make a roaring fire in one minute with the help of a leaf blower. Don't try this at home kids.

Decorating the Christmas tree.
Back in Belgium for the last two weeks of the year. It was cold but beautiful when I walked to the bakery in the morning.
Boston still has around 2,500 gas lights throughout the city. The first gas lights were introduced in 1828. Prior to 1828, Boston used oil lamps to light the streets. While gas lights provide a lot of character to the neighborhood, they are not great for carbon emission. Recently, the city decided to replace them with LED lights that mimic real flames.
