Love Where You Live

Are you lucky enough to love where you live? We do hope so. It is a life-changing state to be in. When you really believe that there’s no place like home, you can be so much more content and at ease with your situation.

We are lucky enough to live in the UK’s ‘happiest place to live’ – Leigh-on-Sea. It has a good community vibe, estuary walks and seaside, easy access to London and the list goes on.

It’s not just Leigh-on-Sea that has a fond place in our hearts though. We’ve been lucky enough to live in several places that we love – London, Bath, Brighton and Sydney for starters. Each of those cities has a special place in our hearts and memories of our lives there make us smile.

The downside to that is constantly missing something about a place when you’re somewhere else. Whilst we do love Leigh-on-Sea, there are days when we’d love to hop back into our lives spent in the sun, sand and surf of Sydney. But when we lived there, we’d have dreams about English countryside and traditional, old pubs. It’s that old saying about the grass being greener.

Wherever our current home is, we always carry a piece of our other homes with us. It could be a treasured photo, a piece of artwork, a significant song, a memento and, most importantly, our precious memories.

This February, the month of love, make time to celebrate the place that you love. Walk along your favourite track, visit your much-loved café and pub, explore the new stores and browse the old faithfuls. Just make time to enjoy your happy place.

If you love where you live, or know somebody else who does, why not treat yourself or them to a local print of your special place.
