A little History
I have always had the urge to go to Belgium as my Great Grandparents immigrated from there first to Minnesota and then to Canada. My grandfather was the youngest of nineteen children and in his lifetime he had not met all his brothers and sisters. Some of his family had already married and had their own families. When his Mom and Dad moved to Canada, my Grandpa was just a little boy. They became farmers,my great grandfather, my grandpa, my Dad and now my brother. I don't know much of the facts or even the background, but I have been dabbling in finding out more about the family tree, hence the interest in Belgium. I have always been interested in art and tonight I found this beautiful sculpture. It is beautiful, Something about the eyes that I find very intriquing, almost calling to me! There is so much out there in the world to see, I hope someday I will get to travel and experience other parts of the world. Until then I am very happy and thankful for all my blessings, on one of my Best Days I will experience Belgium. In the meantime I did have a great day, dyed my hair this evening and it turned out great. So now I am a redhead! I have one more day until my sister comes and I am so so excited to see her for a few days. When I awake tommorow I am planning to draw most of the day as I have been working on a project for a friend of mine...I can't say what it is in case she is reading this. So my day will be peaceful, calm, inspiring, perfect. I think it will be My Best Day!
