About Me

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!

Friday’s Fave Five, Ice Cream Cones and Coffee


FFF spring

It’s Friday AGAIN, the month of August is almost halfway. Time flies.
Time to look back and share the favorite things from the week.

fave five


1. The weather has been rather unstable this week, but turned out to be a lot better than predicted, so we were still able to enjoy the outdoors a lot.
I did a bike tour with my husband on Sunday and with a friend of mine on Tuesday and we managed to keep our clothes dry on both occasions!
2. Meetings with friends. A bike tour, a lunch appointment and a photo walk with three different friends of mine. It’s been a busy week!
3. Breakfast at my friend Nana’s. Our days are always too short so in order to get an early start we had breakfast together at her place, which was a real treat!  
4. Ice cream cones. I had two this week! The one I had yesterday was one of the best I had in a long time. It had vanilla and speculoos (cookies) flavor. Yummie!
5. Coffee breaks. Nothing better than catching up with friends over a nice cup of coffee. There have been many this week!

Friday’s Fave Five is hosted by Susanne at Living to Tell the Story.
