Anywhere in the World

Anywhere in the World

There’s one great thing about being a freelance graphic designer… I can work anywhere in the world. I can be on vacation in some warm country with my feet in the sand and all I need to work is an internet connection and my laptop. It also allows me to be a little flexible in where I live.

Why am I telling you this? Well, because in just over a month my family and I will be moving from Southern Ontario to Nova Scotia. I know, crazy right?!? My husband works in construction and although he has had a busy career it’s taken some toll on his body. It’s time for him to semi-retire. Why Nova Scotia? If you’ve ever been there you’ll know its a very beautiful province and it also happens to have properties that don’t require your first born child as a down payment – lol. We’ve lived in Southern Ontario all our lives and although it’s a great place to live it’s also getting to be a rather expensive place as well. We wanted to have a place on a body of water with a little bit of land and, of course, good internet. We fell in love with a place in Nova Scotia that checked all the boxes.

For most of my clients me moving to Nova Scotia will not make much of a difference. There’s many (or most) that I have never met face to face and quite a few that I’ve even never spoken to on the phone. All of my work for them has been done through emails. There are a few clients I’ve recently acquired that are close to where I live now that might miss me but there’s always Skype for those times I need to see them face to face 🙂

I hope you all join me on this journey. I’ll be blogging about it here and posting on Facebook and Instagram so be sure to follow me @pinklemonademedia

Now I have to go pack 🙂

  1. Congratulations on your move – such a big decision! Nova Scotia is one of my favourite places to visit. From the colourful homes of Lunenburg to the warm hospitality of Cape Breton Island, the wineries and the friendliness of Nova Scotians in general, you made a great choice! Good luck and all the best to you!
