For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb

Something beautiful and unexpected can really help to shift your perspective.

Over the weekend, I headed to the park and saw these beauties sailing quietly over the city. It dawned on me how fortunate I am to live in a brand new place that I've barely explored yet. Mr P was away, we don't know many people here yet and I had been feeling as if we'd barely had any time to settle in together. I just needed something to help me realise what an adventure that is. I'm just as free as those untethered balloons and can begin the process of falling in love with a new city.





Putting down roots, joining stuff, finding our favourite local this and that, sharing it all with friends and family, getting lost, being touristy and sometimes not being here at all – it has started and there'll be more to come. I'm sure.

If you wanna see more balloon goodness, fashion bloggers She and Hem (they're local lasses) shared this brilliant vlog of the Bristol Balloon Fiesta. Up, up and away!

  5. Beautiful! Keep smiling - you'll soon be settled and meet new people. Remember too that there are always friendly "ears" here if you need it! Happy settling in. X
