One of the great blessings of this ministry is being able to “meet” other daughters at home from around the world! My sisters and I have communicated with Virginie and her sister Aurélie for several years now and have been very blessed by them. We look forward to the day that we can meet face to face!
Tell us a little about yourself …
Hi everyone!!! I’m glad to be able to introduce myself to the SSM blog readers! My name is Virginie Coosemans and I live in Belgium! Yes, that tiny country somewhere in Europe 😉 I come from a family of 5 siblings and my wonderful parents. I’m the second youngest and I’m 22 years old. My oldest sister Doremie (28) and husband live close to us. My sister Melodie (26) lives in a brand new apartment in our village which is very fun! Sis Aurélie (25) and brother Lennert (18) are still at home, together with me. We are a close knit family and we mostly 😉 like being around each other! We live at the edge in the small village of Hoegaarden with around 6,000 inhabitants. Even though our village is small, there is always lots of activity going on here!
I’m a somewhat old-fashioned young lady who loves pretty teacups, (always on the look out for a delicious new tea-blend, by the way!), floral fabrics, handmade lovelies, handwritten letters, old fashioned candy and simple living. I love to be busy in our tiny garden that’s full of roses, flowers and herbs. Currently we are turning a piece of it into a small vegetable garden! I’m so excited about the project! I like taking pictures, reading, writing friends, singing, baking bread and cookies, cooking meals and preserving garden abundance with new recipes, being busy with herbs, talking 😉 and arranging a tea party. I enjoy the sweet little things in life like hanging the laundry on the line, feeding our 4 chickens, cuddling our 4 cats, helping my family, sending a cheery note to a friend, etc.
