Next week see’s an exciting new addition to Lizzie Somerset, a sparkly new joint linky I will be running with Becca from Keeping up with the Joneses.
The linky idea came about after a chat with Becca about where she got her local food shop. I met Becca at Brit Mums Live as we have a mutual blogging friend in Karen 365 Pearls of Wisdom who is my friend and blogging mentor!
We met up again at the Natural History Museum in London, Becca is from Chelsea. Coming from the country, I live in Somerset, I just assumed she could get her food shopping online from Tesco like I do (other supermarkets are available) only for Becca to say that’s not how it works in London! Total realisation dawned that lifestyle in the city is indeed quite far removed from life in the country. Not better, just very different!
We also chatted about our similarities! Our kids, their ages, the things they say and the things we enjoy doing as families with small kids, they are very similar. We’ve both recently visited a pumpkin patch, ours was just down the road whereas Becca’s was a 45 minute journey out of London.
So an idea was born. Lots of FaceTime’s and coffee’s later we came up with City Country Life! Our heart behind the linky idea is:
Whatever your lifestyle, whether you choose to live in the city or in the country, life is precious and to be enjoyed to the full! This linky is for anyone who loves where they live and wants to celebrate it with us.
City Country Life will run every Monday from 8pm to the following Sunday 8pm. I hope you’ll link up your lifestyle posts and reviews with us. We’re so excited to be hosting this linky each Monday and hope you will find it a warm and edifying place to be. Becca and I will set a topic each week to act as a writing prompt if you would like to use it.
The first linky topic is BONFIRE NIGHT, so come and link up all of your firework and bonfire posts either old or new, we can’t wait to read them.
