Gone Offline

If you sent me an email last week, this was the response you received:

For the most part, I stuck to it, and it felt really good. It’s nice to have such easy access to the entire world, but it’s also nice to put the iPhone down every once in awhile and focus solely on family time.

We started the week by heading to our yearly get away in Waupaca with my in-laws. It’s the kind of spot where the most dressed up you get is to throw a coverup on for our nightly walks to the ice cream shop. The kids spent more time in the water than out of it, and everyone had a great time.

After returning home, we had less than 24 hours to prepare to host a family reunion for my side of the family. I’m fortunate to be part of a family who enjoys hanging out together, and I’m already looking forward to next year. We capped off the week with dinner outside with a lovely sunset as our lighting.

I hope you’re getting a chance to enjoy your family this summer too!

  • Lordy Lordy guess who’s…. just kidding. I’m not going to be that dorky! But you get the hint. I’m turning 40 tomorrow!  AAhhh! I don’t mind turning 40. I just don’t like the wrinkles, moodiness and body changes that comes with it. *sigh In honor of my 40th birthday I’m letting you in on 40 random… [Continue Reading]

  • This Thanksgiving is a big one for both of the Wild Ruffle girls, as we’ll each be hosting in our homes for the first time! Though Tammy has hosted before, she just moved into her new home (yay!), and will be having her whole crew over there on the big day. And though in previous… [Continue Reading]

    Hosting Made Easy
  • Living out of boxes isn’t as cracked up as I thought it might be. {just kidding, I never really thought that} Don’t get me wrong, I’m giddy with every fiber of my body that we have officially moved into our new house!  Woohoo! But… My life is currently living out of boxes. Trying to stay one step… [Continue Reading]
