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!

  • This weekend was a whirlwind! My husband headed out of town on business on Thursday, and extended his stay until Sunday evening to stay with his uncle. Meanwhile, the kids had more activities schedule during those four days than you can shake a stick at (what does that phrase even mean?!). It seemed that just… [Continue Reading]

    Deep Sigh of Relief
  • I just got back from vacation (and have seriously been researching cheap flights – without luck – to leave again because it’s so stinking cold here!). Tammy’s headed out in a few weeks to a warm destination. So we both have the tropics on our minds. We thought we’d put together a handy little vacation… [Continue Reading]

    Wild About Vacation Style
  • My 12 year old was over at a friend’s house last weekend. While most of the time I’m arresting her phone and entering it into our family phone-jail, this time was different. I am proud to say she wasn’t glued to her phone… this time, she was glued to a newspaper! What? Yes. Adaline and… [Continue Reading]

    Kids are So Creative!
  • As I mentioned last week {here}, we were invited to the Twin Cities Oscar Experience 2015. It proved to be a fabulous soirée with food, Hollywood fashion and most importantly… giving back to the community! All proceeds are split between non-profits, Twin Cities Film Fest and Aegis Foundation. Cate was unable to attend at the last minute… [Continue Reading]

    WIW to the Oscars
  • Someone take me back to Arizona asap. Seriously – it’s so stinking cold here in Minnesota! I love my home state, but when you board a plane in 80 degree weather, and return to -5 degrees, it’s rough going. I know, I know – I’m not going to inspire sympathy from many around here. After… [Continue Reading]
