New Beginnings in Belize Part 2: Getting Settled In

FullSizeRender (7)

I’ve officially been in Belize for 3 1/2 weeks. I forget what it feels like to be cold. I’ve been doing a lot of running around, getting settled in, and making new friends. Honestly, it has been a little hard to believe that I’m actually living here! I meant to take more pictures, but it seems like every time I see something beautiful my hands are full of groceries or I don’t have my phone with me. Today I plan on taking a walk for the sole purpose of taking pictures.

We’re still at the end of summer rainy season here, so it’s been pretty easy to stay inside and keep on track with my work. I also got a new client this week who I am super excited to work with! There is no lack of inspiration here, no lazy days under a blanket by the fireplace. I am full of energy and I’m surrounded by beauty all the time. I can’t explain what that does for my work ethic and my creativity level. It has been a balance between wanting to go out and explore everything San Pedro has to offer- and wanting to get as much work done as possible. The rain kind of makes that decision for me.

It hasn’t been without some really fun times so far though. I’ve met some really nice, fun people. Got drunk on the beach. Fell asleep in the sun. Took my dog on his first boat ride, and today we’re heading out to get some snorkeling gear! It’s crazy, but we haven’t even been in the ocean yet!

Look out for some underwater videos and photos coming soon as we head out to explore the reef! For now, it’s back to work for me! Can’t wait to see how this new client’s branding & website turns out. I’m like, way too excited about work right now- which is never a bad thing!
