About Me

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,a grandmothe and 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

Friday's Fave Five from Provence

Five Favourite things from Provence, France:

The local markets.

Cute shops.

Fresh produce.

Eating outside.

And music.

( I'll introduce them to you tomorrow. Make sure you come back, they're worth it!)

All of this happens OUTSIDE !!

*Waving at you from Carpentras*.
(On Friday mornings we visit the weekly market at Carpentras)

I, too, wish I was there. It just seems so relaxing....something I am not getting at home at the moment.

I suspect that even if I were there, I wouldn't see it quite as beautifully as you do:)

Catching up with your blog. I'm so envious of you being in Provence! Don't you just love Saignon? We ate at the Auberge du Presbytere and it was fabulous! I'm anxious to hear about the musicians. Have a wonderful vacation.
