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!

By the way, did you know that there’s only two days left to enter to win this amazing skincare package? There’s a total of over $750 in prizes to be won, so don’t miss out!

  • When I was young, my mom always made our marinara from scratch. Truthfully, she made just about everything from scratch – and I just grew up thinking that was normal. I didn’t really realize that marinara was readily available in a jar until I was older. And so, I’ve always preferred the taste of the… [Continue Reading]

  • Life is catching up with me and I’m feelin it.  Running non-stop lately is taking it’s toll. I’m exhausted. Last week, a few school parents and I took a group of forty 5th graders to the Eagle Bluff Environmental Center for three days of outdoor education.  While it was well worth the months of planning and organization, I… [Continue Reading]

  • My poor husband. He’s truly concerned for his future with me. And my crazy memory loss. For instance, the other day we had a long conversation about a specific subject while on the phone. A half hour later, he arrived home, and I proceeded to dive right into the same conversation. Because I couldn’t remember… [Continue Reading]
