On the Move Again

On the Move Again

So we are on the move again and its goodbye Aberdeen, hello East Lothian!. Yes we are moving back to East Lothian! We thought our Aberdeen adventure would last much much longer but then along came a fantastic job opportunity for Mr Kerr so its back south we go.

The decision to move back was not take lightly. In fact I think it was one of the tougher decisions we’ve had to make in a long time. Balancing the job with whats best for our family, for our future-its a lot to consider and the weight of it felt so much pressure to make the right decision. Lets be honest, my initial reaction wasn’t that great. In fact I didn’t even congratulate my husband on his job offer for a few days- not my best moment. Having just had a baby made it feel like the worst timing to have to make such a big decision but sometimes life throws you a curveball which might just be the best thing for you.

But the more we thought and discussed it moving was the best option. And I couldn’t be more excited to start a new chapter back in a place we love, with family close by, with our friends and of course gorgeous beaches. This month has been a whirlwind of decision making, house hunting, house selling. Everything has so far come together in the best possible way- all signs that this was definitely the right move for us to make.

So we have about six weeks left in Aberdeen, which Im going to enjoy to the fullest, and then we will be moving to an Edinburgh city rental for about eight weeks and then into our new home. It is going to be such a busy time but I will manage it with grace and a lot of lists!!

Expect the next few months on here to focus more on decluttering, organising, coping with change and overwhelm, moving with kids and minimalism! Plus some Aberdeen bucket list, Edinburgh favourites and new home posts.
