When a man is tired of London...

...he is tired of life. How I've heard this phrase countless times! Well, Samuel Johnson- you lived in London in the 1700s, I'm pretty sure it's changed since then.

I love London, don't get me wrong, I love it! I love its distinct areas, always seeing new things, endless supply of things to do, Charlotte Street, London in summer;when it empties in August and those glorious blue skies against the buildings, London in winter; bundling up in countless layers, people out late, the bright lights of the city. I truly love it all. I'm just not sure living here is the answer anymore.

'But Kelsey you just said you love London?!'

And yes, I do, but living and working here is....constant. Some people can do it forever and I applaud them for that. I thought I was going to be one of those people but the work/life balance isn't there for me and this city is getting more and more expensive so with that being said Alex and I have made a very big (and scary and exciting and..wah! All the emotions) to leave London.

I'm excited for this next chapter, we've been waiting for it for a long time. I'm going to miss London though; the friends I've made, the places that have become local to us, the buzz that London has- I'm pretty sure it rivals most cities. It's been my home for 6 years but it's now onto the next phase and everything that the joy of country living is going to bring. And hey London- we can still be friends.
