It's a Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood

I fall more and more in love with our new neighborhood every day.  Of course I have moments where I miss our old one but I love being downtown and exploring all the little details of where we live.

Jill, thanks! it's quite beautiful down here. I love it more and more every day!

this is Belgium, yes I definitely felt it! At first I thought it was my upstairs neighbor bc they've been doing some work in their apt. Then I thought it might be me bc my legs were trembling! I looked up and the cabinet was shaking. So I looked out the window and everything seemed normal. But when I glanced over, I saw my lamp was shaking and tapping the wall. I thought right away that it might be an earthquake but that that would be impossible! I had CNN on watching the reports from Libya and 3 minutes after the shaking stopped (it lasted not even a minute but felt a lot longer) they were reporting that there was an earthquake in Virginia and that it was felt up here in NY! I couldn't believe it. We had to evacuate our building but then all was fine. Lots of people in the street. but other than that it was fine...just scary. x
