The title says it all, really: Kiss & Make-up is taking a break. A big one. I could write an essay on the how and why behind it, but what it comes down to is that after four years of living in Switzerland my husband and I are moving back home to Belgium. And it?s definitely a bit of a bittersweet thing. We?re of course stoked to be closer to our friends and family again ? after a while the distance rrreally starts to weigh on you ? and we?re thrilled to be spending more quality time again with the people we love and miss so much. But on the other hand we?re also very sad to say goodbye to Switzerland. This place has been our home for the past four years after all, and in that time we?ve met some amazing people and made some great new friends that we?re going to miss very much. And the mountains…. Oh how I?m going to miss the mountains! I?m pretty sure I?m going to bawl my frickin? eyes out when I see the last peaks disappear in our rear view mirror the day we leave. Ugh.

So when’s the big move, you ask" Tomorrow… *gulp*. If you think moving to another town or city is a hassle, try moving to another country. It’s pure chaos. No, scratch that, it’s hell.

So when will I be back then, you ask" If the move was all I had to worry about I?d probably be back in a week or two. But unfortunately it isn?t. Over the past few weeks and months you may have picked up that I?ve been dealing with an eye problem ? the lens implant in my right eye has shifted ? and once we get back to Belgium it is my priority to have it fixed, before anything else. Sure, I?m still functioning. But having fucked up vision all the time and not being able to do a damn thing about it is pretty debilitating. My vision is blurry and distorted all the time, even with glasses. It?s like being tipsy 24/7. And the headaches. Oh, the damn headaches? So yeah, I need to have this...
