Today marks the one year anniversary of my big move from a sleepy town in Surrey, England to the beautiful, bustling city of Edinburgh. It’s been without question, one of the toughest things I’ve ever done, uprooting myself from the town I grew up in, moving away from where the majority of my friends were living and starting a whole new life in a new country and city.
I’m back! It’s been a while I know, but sometimes life just gets in a way, making it all together impossible to balance everything that’s going on. Looking back at my posts, my last Sunday Duvet Reading series was back in July (two ENTIRE months ago- how did this even happen?). Even though I am in complete denial that it is now October, I am hugely excited to crack the heating back on, snuggle up under a pile of blankets with a cup of tea, preferably English Breakfast, and get utterly lost in a good old book.
The Sunday Duvet Reading Series is something I love to read on other people’s blogs and newsletters (What Olivia Did, I’m looking particularly at you). The nature of social media means we consume a huge amount on content on a daily basis so when I find a topic or series that stands out to me, it hugely shapes and inspires the sort of content I would like to produce. Here’s hoping the first Sunday Duvet Series will be an interesting read for you!
When I first started EditsOfJo, I wrote quite a few book-related posts along with a number of book reviews (have a little read of Reasons to Stay Alive and Moondance). With an ever growing TBR (to-be-read) pile, I thought it would be a good time to restart the Book Edit, kicking off with my favourite reads of the year so far.
Sharing some of my favourite shots from my film camera today – taken in black and white and in colour, and corresponding with some of my top memories and moments of twenty-eighteen so far.
Six months ago today I made both an exciting and somewhat terrifying move from a sleepy little village in Surrey to the bustling city of Edinburgh. It was such an enormous change, moving out of my family home, moving to a different country and starting a whole new chapter of my life in a place far removed from where I was used to.
This is quickly becoming one of my favourite posts to write on Edits of Jo. I will never get over the excitement of getting film developed and seeing how my shots have turned out and that beautiful vintage, faded look to the photographs that is so reminiscent of my childhood. This post is actually a combination of both film and digital photos.
