Living Inspired by Sandy B

We all have moments of inspiration. It's what we do with those moments that can be impactful and transformative. Since arriving in Israel, I've been inspired by Israel, its history, its people and its unique vibe. I'm fascinated by Jerusalem, its breathtaking architecture, diverse population and her spiritual nature. It’s our city of gold that has touched my soul, filling me with spiritual fulfillment, excitement and inspiration to cross the threshold of creativity.

Within my blog @Living Inspired, I will be sharing with you what I'm passionate about, beautiful tablescapes, design tips and so much more. Living inspired allows us to live a happy and more fulfilled life. Through my blog, I hope to inspire you too.

The foundation of our Home
20 October 2015
When we first arrived in Israel, getting used to Sundays as a workday was not easy. The marathon meetings, rigorous schedules and endless planning start bright and early Sunday morning. By the time Shabbat comes , I am so thankful to Hashem for the gift of this special day. Shabbat comes with a sense of peace and tranquility which helps us take a break from our hectic lives by putting our work...
Ready for Back to School
20 September 2015
The lunches are made, the books are labelled and the bags are packed. The early morning buzz has returned to the streets as children throughout the country go back to school.

Today they are off to junior high and ...
