This blog used to have the name JessinBelgium, but then I moved to London and the name became misleading. I’ve always found names of English towns like Henley-On-Thames charming so I decided to create my own.
What do I blog about?
Twelve years ago, I moved to Europe for what was supposed to be a one- year stint. Twelve years later, life abroad is just as entertaining. I blog about it.
Where am I from?
That’s a harder question to answer than it should be. I was born in California and have lived in 13 different States. I went to high school in Minnesota and college in upstate New York. I studied in Washington DC and Paris and worked in Brussels for 10 years.
What do I like?
Loud laughs. Long walks. Sunny days. Animals. Autumn. Old buildings. Florists. Sarcasm. Coffee. Cheese. Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream. Summer salads. More cheese. Chili. Red wine. Old school pubs. Event planning. Ballet. Theatre. Cheesy 80s anthems. The West Wing. The Good Wife. Jon Stewart. Amy Poehler. The Tonight Show. Books about faraway lands or long-gone times. Bookstores to find them in. Wes Anderson movie sets.
What do I dislike?
Having to list things I dislike.
