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

Love how you made a game of reaching the final macro! Most entertaining with lots of sideline pleasures along the way! O! And the bee really does look as if he has become stuck in that flower!

"Pssst busy little Bee"..."Jientje's life is not only good...it's wonderful!"

Melli said...

ROFLMBO! Life IS good - for YOU... AND for your busy bee! Look at the spread on that table! I'm surprised the bee stayed in the flowers...

moneythoughts said...

As usual, I love the photos. Very clever story, enjoyed the bee too. What kind of health care do you all have in Belgium? You have a beautiful country, you eat well, you look healthy, so, what's your secret?

Unknown said...

That is one fat bee! And that is one set of lovely photographs.

Wendy said...

Thanks for sharing your lovely photographs with us on a daily basis. I look forward to visiting this blog every day without fail. Why my grandparents moved to the US from Belgium is a mystery to me.

Oh my dear, of course the bee is awesome! But I'm so distracted by that table! I would love to be joining you! It has me drooling incessantly!
