After the Vacation ...

We had so much fun visiting our friends in Vermont, but the drive home was beyond exhausting ... so I have been doing lots of this ... 

Waking to enjoy a cup of  tea  ...

One of my favourite ways to relax with a cup of tea, is to read Belle Inspiration...

Belle Inspiration was founded by the wonderful, creative and inspiring writer of  the blog Bonjour Romance. I discovered Mimi's blog around the time she was considering taking her joy for life and creating an on-line publication. After much elbow grease, long nights and I'm sure many what ifs ... Belle Inspiration's premier issue was launched September 2010. Having enjoyed her blog - I was thrilled to be receiving her wonderful creation - directly to my in-box.

Each issue is filled with wonderful, informative, inspiring articles and stories from contributors around the world. For those who like to skim through publications for  inspiring photos be it, fashion, travel, home, or lifestyle you will not be disappointed.

During this past year of reading Belle Inspiration, along with how to make fig jam (in the premier issue); amazing holiday decorating, and that Wellies can be used as a vase; Nantucket's quiet way of life may be the place for me; a person may have Passion for many things, and that's OK; seeing France in photos, makes me want to return there; through wonderful photos and articles I understand Hubby's desire to return to Italy - it's not just his heritage.  Possibly the most important things I have learned is that you do not need to spend a fortune to be stylish, have a beautiful home and dine on the best food! and that everything is possible so long as you have a DREAM...

Each issue brings the magic of truly enjoying life ~ not just living it ~ to colour.

I'll be spending my week catching up at home, therapy stuff and blog visiting and  reading. Will return to regular posting next week.

What tips can you share to get back into routine, 
after a vacation ???


  1. you made me want a cup of tea =] Going to go make one now !

  2. Going for my cuppa and to read some inspirations... Thank you

  3. I'm glad you enjoyed your vacation!! As for tips on getting back into a routine? Take things as they come, you've been out of the loop at home for a while. Don't force yourself to get back in the swing of things, they'll come naturally. :)


  4. Love your pics. I'm about to get back to my routine too, I just focus on....the next vacation, and how my routine (i.e. work) will let me get there.

    p.s. I love your cup!

  5. Stowe must be wonderful... loved the photo's! I'm glad you got that time.
    Thank you for your blog visit, you are so sweet to catch up on everyone. I have a confession... my husband wrote Take Away but refused claim it as his. The special needs/suicide events really disturb him especially because he used to work for an agency (before we were special needs) where he could see families gong in that direction all too often. You are the only one to comment on it so I wondered if it was just too much for everyone. Your mention put me more at ease with those thoughts out there on the net:-)
    Welcome back!

  6. To rest in front of Belle inspiration is the best thing to do . I love MImi's e magazine.

  7. Merci beaucoup Celia. You are part of the Belle Team with your marvelous articles. Your support means the world to me.
    Big hug,

  8. So pleased you had a lovely getaway Celia despite feeling tired (I am sure it was that "satisfied" tiredness). I've never read the publication you mention, so I'm off to follow the link you provided.
    Enjoy your rest and re-charge Sweets xx

  9. Hi Celia, Oh I love this blog of yours too. Wonderful!
    A happy follower now too.

    Love Italy so much!

  12. Great pictures - I'm still recovering from our back east trip - I need a vacation from our vacation - ha

  13. Relax and rejuvenate! This looks like a read right up my alley, I must go check it out, thanks for the tip!

  14. Dearest Celia,

    Indeed, a perfect combination for coming to your senses again.
    Love to you,


  15. Hi! I'm glad you're back, too! I'm drinking lots of tea these days too so that makes two of us. Hope you had a lovely holiday!!!!

    Love, Kristin

  16. Ooo, I'll have to check out that site - sounds great! It's hard to get back into the routine after vacation. You want to hold onto those lazy days where you're in no hurry to be anywhere and you always have a cocktail in hand. :)I always try to take the day off from work after we arrive home. It always me to decompress from the drive/flight and get some stuff done around the house, Then I hit the ground running the next day!

  17. Thanks Celia for tuning me into to this. I was clueless. Sounds like a great e-zine.
    Thanks so much for stopping by.
    hugs from here...
