many years ago, we had the fabulous opportunity to live in brussels, belgium. oh, the memories i have...the mussels, the fries, the belgian waffles, and, of course, the dark belgian chocolate! and, just so you don't think it was all about food, the architecture was spectacular too (but i really did love the food!)! but as beautiful as brussels was, there were a few times when we were able to take the train to london...and when that train would pull itself out of the chunnel and into the outskirts of the city, i was as giddy as a school girl on her first field trip! so when i came across this fabric in my stash, all of those wonderful memories instantly came back to me and i was totally inspired to put that energy towards this new journal. if you've been to london, you might spy one of your favorite landmarks on the covers. and if you haven't been to london, i highly recommend it...and while you're over there, head on over to brussels and paris, too!
