Local Love.

I grew up in a small town close to the beach where each day you would smile and say hello to anyone and everyone, this is something I’ve always missed since moving to the city.

I currently live in the inner west and absolutely adore where I live, but the one thing I miss is that local love. 

Today I realised something amazing – I have created the local love myself. Walking home from the station each day I wave at the local cafe. Getting my coffee in the morning and having the daily chats with the cafe owners. Even just the fact that they know my coffee order (piccolo) now! 

I think if we all just put in a little effort to converse with people it makes all the difference.

Do you have local love in your big city?
