~ There’s no place like home ~

Monday is my one-year anniversary of living in Bath; i'll be in London on the actual day but i know i'll be looking forward to getting back to my little flat and cosying in with my metaphorical pipe 'n' slippers. This place really has become my home, both the city with its friendly taxi drivers and extraordinary refuse problem, and this flat with its tired carpet and insect flatmates (seriously – just call me Susannah Doolittle). I feel settled here, i feel held and supported. My dreams are beginning to flourish, and i know that it was my leap last year that has made it all possible. I hoped for more, for a bigger life, but i didn't expect of all this… I truly hope that this is just the beginning. I'm feeling more able to make space in my inner cupboards now, so there's room for a partner-in-crime in my world… i think it could be fun. I'm ready for some fun.

    I moved to Spokane 6 years ago. 2000 miles away from all of my friends and family, and the Texas hill country that I grew up in and love so deeply. And it is just in the last few months that I am starting to feel truly at home here, but it is such a good feeling. I’m glad you reached that point much sooner than me.

    I can still vividly remember the awe I felt on a trip to Bath back when I was in high school. I was only able to spend a day there, but it’s a magical place. Congrats on finding your fit. I love my city (Chicago) but I’m never quite sure if it’s the place I’m meant to be.

    I’m just starting a big move myself (not place, but career) – seeing you settled in your space gives me the excitement to wonder how my life will be after 1 year from the upheaval that will occur now. Thanks for sharing your journey,

    Congratulations on one year in Bath, and one year of wonderful and fulfilling adventures! I hope to be looking back next year this time with the same sentiment on my journey—starting to do art full-time.

    I got tingles. I remember the move, and all the courage it took to make it. This is exactly where you knew you wanted to be though, so you dug in and held on until you got here. You rock! Fun is surely listening and ready to play now!
