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, a Fabulous Week

The last Friday of February already! Time to join Susanne's Friday's Fave Five at Living to tell the story by sharing the highlights of the week that has passed.
It's been a fabulous week for me, I hardly know where to begin!

1. We celebrated our 30th anniversary this weekend. I cooked up a little gourmet dinner with all our favorite food, and we had a lovely evening with romantic music and candlelight. I did a post on it here.

2. My camera is repaired! So glad I have my Big Guy back and that it's functioning again! Can you believe I took loads of photos this week?

3. The new car! My hubby bought a new car and we took it for a spin last night. I felt like a princess in a silver carriage, it's beautiful!

4. Some extra time together with my hubby. He took two days off and we went photo hunting together in the Zwalm region on Tuesday. The Zwalm region is a very photogenic region in Belgium even now while it's still Winter and nature still looks a bit gray and dull.

5. The sunset I photographed there, isn't it breathtaking?

The stand of trees look like a Crown. Beautiful shot, Jientje.

Wow - that's a stunner of a sunset. So glad you got you camera back. What a fun way to welcome its presence back into your lives by taking a 2 day photo hunting excursion. Does your husband take photos too?

Congrats on 30 years!!!! Like everyone else, I love the photo of you two holding hands.

And I know exactly what it feels like to not have a camera for awhile. It's so comforting and exciting to get it back. Congrats on that as well!

I love your pictures from you anniversary, they turned out very romantic. Congratulations on your anniversary. And on the new car!

Susanne said...

I don't know how you managed so long without your camera!

A new car! Whoo Hoo. It looks like a really nice one. What kind is it?

Catherine said...

Oh, yes! It IS a beautiful sunset!

Happy anniversary to you and your beloved. It sounds like you had a lovely celebration.

I'm glad that you are enjoying your car and camera!
