Coming back from vacation can be kind of a bummer, right? While it's great to sleep in your own bed again (especially if you managed to change the sheets before you left), facing reality after a couple weeks of break bliss isn't fun. There's all the mail to go through, an empty fridge, and no more hotel breakfasts...
My friend Dana had been enjoying a few blueberry days in Maine but flew back to a Seattle that had suddenly gone all grey and rainy, so I wanted to take the edge off her return. Home baked blueberry muffins seemed the perfect place to start.
This is my go-to recipe (click here) - love the crumble on top and a little bit of lemon zest gives them just the slightest hint of zing.
Throw them into a pretty blue basket, add some striped tea towels, coordinating ribbon and specially made gift tag and you have a pretty package that will help make the homecoming truly welcome. It would make a lovely housewarming gift, too.
It's not quite room service, but will hopefully make that first morning's breakfast a bit sweeter!
How do you make that vacation feeling last even after you've returned home?
Happy Wednesday! XO
