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!

  • I wish I could say I was different than the norm, but I’m not. While I realize most people try to fit in, I’ve spend a considerable amount of time trying to stand out. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not crazy. I don’t push the envelope too drastically. I mean I still buy random clothes from Target so… [Continue Reading]

    I’m Not Any Different
  • Every winter, I schedule a chemical peel at Dr. Prischmann’s office. I’ve mentioned before that I have melasma, and this helps to lighten some of the discoloration from that. Plus, I love having fresh and new skin once a year for so many reasons. Typically, I schedule my appointments for the winter months, because the… [Continue Reading]

  • It’s finally officially spring here in Minnesota, but we’ve all been  hanging out outside and celebrating as if it has been spring for weeks now. We go a little stir crazy in this chilly tundra of a state during the cold weather months, and we’re ready to embrace some warmth. My kids are even running around… [Continue Reading]
