About Me

My photo
Antwerp, Belgium
Welcome to the new, and improved version of Heaven in Belgium. I am Jientje. "Jientje", like the boys name Gene, followed by "chu"? "Gene-chu", that's how you pronounce my name. Yes!!!!That's it!! So now you know huh? I am an addicted blogger. I was born and raised and am still living in Belgium. Yeah, the "this-is- Tuesday-so-this-must-be-Brussels" kind of Belgium .. There, you see? Maybe you couldn't find it on the map, but at least I'm trying to change that a little by sharing lots of pictures. I really love to cook and create new things, like this blog for instance. I am a mother, not a grandmother,I don't know if I'll ever be, but I'll let you know in due time! Oh and um ... I am a wife too! They say I'm a traveler, and a photographer. Well that's just what they say, I love to make pictures, but I am far from professional ... If my English is not perfect, that would be because it's my second language. I do hope you'll forgive me any possible misspellings or strange vocabulary ... Now, as a result of all of the above, I get way too little sleep and my days are always much too short!

Friday’s Fave Five Melli and Mom and the lighthouse …

 

 

FFF fall leaves 2

 

Friday again.
Now where did that week go?
Never mind …

Where did three weeks go would probably sound more like it!

I made a Fave Five out of one of my photo walks with Mom and Melli today.

I got to visit
1.  Calvert Marine Museum 
including
2. the tour of the lighthouse which is famous for its
3. well kept antiques interior.
4. Melli bought me a very cute T-shirt I just LOVE wearing
and we had
5. a wonderful crab meal in the restaurant afterwards. Craving a Mojito after that meal lasted the whole tour! Honest! I wonder why … hmmm?


there were many more sweet memories from my stay at Melli’s home, but <i’ll get back to that later…
So much to do and only so many hours in a day …


Golden memories …
