Tuesday 19 July 2011-Heidi and Sarah FTD is up-to-date for the first time in months! We'll surely post on 30 August and perhaps before! Stay tuned!

Above photo is from today actually - just to finally bring Face the Day up-to-date - though I see Heidi has been posting here and there - which is fantastic! Now - if Heidi manages to post a photo of herself today -- then we will really be up-to-date! Anyway - there is always the 30th of August to look forward to when we can post a photo of the last 6 years I think! Can't believe FTD has existed this long. We were very early adopters you know! In the blog world before many others. We can be proud of that. Believe it or not, this blog opened many doors. To think how far I am now immersed on the online stratosphere - it's crazy. I guess I could have known when a colleague asked me to start this blog up something like 7 or 8 years ago that it was the start of an online addiction!

Above photo is from 18 July 2011 - yesterday! Heidi and Yma stopped by to give us brownies they had baked. We had just made cookies. So we made a switch! It was fun and very neighborly and everything tasted so good! Felt very motherly too. It is so fun to cook with your kids!

I think the above photo is from Saturday the 16th of July 2011 and below one too. Heidi has just cut my hair I think. In below one, for sure. Shortest it has ever been!

Can't remember why but Heidi and I also saw each other Thursday or Friday the 14th or 15th. Passing on the street? My brain is blank! Old age I guess! :-)

A collection of random photos from Sarah from the spring/summer 2011

I like the above and below photos. If that is what 40 looks like, I am okay with it! (02 July 2011)

Still happy together after 15 years... (02 July 2011)

Above photo and below one taken the weekend of 03 June 2011 when my friends Tilly and Hilde and I went to The Netherlands with our three 12-year-old daughters to celebrate their being 12 and finishing lower school. Hilde had just turned 48 I think and I had just turned 40. The above photo is important to me as it reminds me of everything that was going on then for my daughter - big changes - some confronting ones - creating different relations with us. Big learning experience for me, Tom and The Lool. I guess a lot of people turning 40 have kids that are turning into teenagers at the same time. It makes you feel old fast sometimes.

The above photo was taken on my 40th birthday (02 June 2011) and The Lool's spring feast. You can see how fast she is becoming older and we too! But the future looks bright! Tom will be on the road less and home more thanks to his new job in Kortrijk instead of in Brussels. I have a new and exciting project to work on for the next 3 years. The Lool has a new school ahead of her. All great things! Exciting!

Sarah's 40th birthday is long gone but here are the pics anyway with a walk down 5 years of memory lane!

That's me above on my 40th!!!!! birthday - 02 June 2011! If you compare this photo to the ones below, you really can see that I am getting older - which is normal of course - but feels odd! Oh well! They say the 40s are great, right?! I think I have a lot to look forward to!

A little more tired and a bit bigger bags under my eyes and fang teeth that are yellowing but otherwise, pretty, pretty, pretty good. I was 39 a year ago and I didn't look much different from the previous 4 years. Click here to go back to my 39th birthday!

There I am above two years ago today on my 38th birthday! Go back to that day via this link and see what a great day that was!

That's Heidi and me on my birthday three years ago - 02 June 2008 at age 37! Click here to go back in time!

That's me four years ago today on my 36th birthday - 02 June 2007! Via this link you can go back to that day three years ago!

There you can see Heidi and me five years ago on my birthday - 02 June 2006 when I turned 35! This link will take you back to that day so long ago!

Heidi and Sarah have been Facing the Day together here and there since January 2011 and through today... Here are some pics from those get-togethers!
