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,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

I'm baaaaack!!!

Hi, it's me, I'm back from my holliday in France.
First of all, I want to thank all of you, loyal visitors and followers of this blog for all the comments you left here while I was away. I can't begin to describe how much this means to me, and how much fun I had reading them all.
It's been wonderful. But it's good to be back too.

The weather was great, the food was divine, and the scenery, as always breathtaking.
I don't know how many ( hundreds of) pictures I took, but there are many...
Lavender fields, poppy fields, sunflowers, old doors and windows.
Pictures of bugs making whoopie and jeu de boules with the locals ...

I promise I will ( try to ) catch up with all of you as soon as I can.
Right now, there is so much "stuff" that needs my attention, I don't know where to start!

Yes Jientje, I feel the same way about so much to do and not knowing where to start. We have just arrived home from a week's vacation too! I had fun keeping up with your pictures while you were gone. Yours are the very best, in my opinion. Welcome home.

Relax. Take it easy and take your time. We are ALL WAITING to see your pictures, but they aren't going to disappear if they aren't posted in the next two minutes. It's just good to have you home - and know that the pictures are coming.

LOL! Coming HOME is always the HARD part of vacation! Get settled in.... start the laundry... grab a cuppa... and visit!

Hi Jientje, Welcome back and just look what you brought us, a magnificent field of lavender, just beautiful. My sister is packing right now to go back to the UK, it has been so much fun having her visit and it will be sad to wave her off at the airport, but at least I can now get back to blogging full time lol, :-). I need to see all your pics of Provence, hugs, Kathy.

Welcome back! Your new header reminds me of an old song called "Lavender Blue," and now I'll be singing it all day long. :) Can't wait to see your photos after you've rested up and caught up.

Carleen said...

Ooops! I didn't mean the header -- even a city girl can see that's wheat or some other grain, LOL! I meant the photo with this post. :)

Unknown said...

your pics were absolutely fabulous! Through the pics I can see myself looking at what you are looking at! I am so intrigued by your photos. They are beautiful.... and what a fun fun fun scavanger hunt! Next time I will join in! It might be a little alarming what I capture here in the desert!
