Urban Rural Mix

I have always described myself as a city girl born and bred in Liverpool. I love Liverpool – I think it is one of the most vibrant, exciting and fashionable cities in the country. I was proud to be a scouser and I thought I would always live there. I am a bit of a home bird. Don’t get me wrong, I love going to see new places and going on adventures but I am always happy to come home and my home was always Liverpool.

When I met my husband I thought when we settled down we would live in Liverpool – why wouldn’t we? Well he had different plans. He needed open space, lots of green grass, calmness – all of which Liverpool didn’t really offer.

So I moved to be with him, obviously not far but out of my home town. I wasn’t sure I would like it. Not only were my family and friends in Liverpool but also my heart.

Fast forward 7 years and I can honestly say I love where we live. We are surrounded by farms, we are not far from the beach, we can go strawberry picking 10 minutes from our home – it is perfect especially for raising a family. I actually find myself saying things like ‘I need some fresh air’ or ‘should we go for a walk.’ My friends find it highly amusing! I am actually becoming a county girl (much to my husband’s delight).

And the relevance of the picture? A couple of months ago, my husband bought me 2 items of footwear. One set signifies the city girl which will always be a part of me and the other is the country girl which I have definitely now embraced.

Whilst a piece of my heart will always remain in Liverpool I have now found a new place to call home.

  1. Ha ha I know what you mean! We moved from a bit town into a rural village, with fields and farms all around! I also love my wellies and my heels too! Glad you’re happy and it’s all about home really – thats where the heart is xx

  2. I’ve always been pretty much rural (in a village, or at uni on a campus in the countryside) apart from 3 years in Oxford and 6 months in Beaconsfield. I love the country, but I do like to be able to go for walks and see something other than fields.

  3. Home is where the heart is, that saying is still popular after decades because it’s so true we may have our hearts in two places I have mine in the states and here but we can make any place a home with the ones we love. Great post. I am the same my country shoes and my city shoes showing off both my parts of my life. Thank you ever so much for linking up to Share With Me. I hope to see you again tomorrow for another great round up and hope you have been enjoying the blog hop. #sharewithme
