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!

Heaven is in Belgium

Life … and stuff …

 

It’s been a week since I got back from our holiday in France, but I have to admit ...
I. HAVE. BEEN. LAZY.
Blogging wise, that is.
Life and family matters have gotten the better of me, I’m afraid.

I promise, as soon as things start to settle down, I’ll be back.
Let me tell you one thing though?
I want to thank you for being my friend.

I have been looking forward to your return. But I have been slowing down a bit too with summer in the air...having a harder time keeping up with everyone.

Boxes and...boxes for me these days! I can't be lazy with the moving ahead! I wish I had a magic stick to move us to Belgium, to our new flat, without any stress or fatigue!

I'm feeling rather like your cat myself, lately.
Summer daze...

Adrienne in Ohio said...

I LOVE this photo. The colors are so soft and earthy. It makes me feel relaxed just looking at that sweet cat sleeping. I really like how you framed its face with the rungs of the railing.

Loree said...

Hi Jientje. I have been away on vacation too and going back to the old routine is always hard. I am sure we can all understand.

LceeL said...

No thanks necessary, Princess.

Are you in summer sleep ? That's why I didn't hear from you ! the picture is adorable.
