Welcome to Drea Stein's La Belle Vie Journal. C'est la belle vie is a French expression that means What a life, or This is the life. For awhile, this has been my motto, a reminder that yes, this is a life - not a lifestyle. And that to have a good one, one must be somewhat intentional in creating it.
So a few years ago, I decided to really focus on living. My family, my friends, food, fun...it all started to come together when I really began to live intentionally.
This is the story of my journey. Along the way, I've written 6 fiction books, all set in a small New England town, focusing on the themes on family, friendship and creating a life.
This journal is a result of the research I've done for my writing along with all the areas I discovered in creating my C'est La Belle Vie. And of course, I am sharing with you some of the things that have brought me joy and happiness along the way.
So dig in, pour a cuppa (tea, coffee, wine, whiskey... it's a no judgement zone..) and relax, browse, read, shop. I welcome you to the journey.
