Hi there! Did you miss me? I'm back
, and I'm here to tell you that UNPLUGGING is the best thing I have done for my mental health in a long time
. It was so nice not to worry or care about who commented on the blog, how many hits I got that day, if I was tweeting enough, or who gave me a thumbs up on Facebook. In fact, it put life back into perspective
and was a much needed
reminder that there is more to life than this computer screen
. Seven days - no Facebook, no instant tweet updates, no blog posts, and limited texts (to my sister) and computer usage (to rent bikes, make tee-times, and plan a day trip to Savannah).
So what did I do?
I finished one and a half books. I swam in the pool. I rode bikes on the beach with my husband to watch the sun rise. I cooked gourmet meals for my family which we ate outside while enjoying the ocean view. I got seasick on a boat to Savannah, GA and I saw "Forrest Gump" on a trolley. I watched Bill Cosby lip-sync to Ray Charles, and laughed my head off when Barney told Andy that "Where there's smoke, there's fire water!" I took pictures to share with you...
I enjoyed each and every day - what did YOU do this week?
I missed your posts last week, but it looks like you had a wonderful time. Welcome back!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Christi! That's really sweet of you, and it's good to be back!Delete
Welcome back to the 'real' world. I am so glad you had a fantastic time in SC...the beach is always good for the soul.ReplyDelete
Agreed! The beach is ALWAYS good for the soul. At least, it is for me.Delete
'Unplugging' is one of my favorite things about going on vacations!ReplyDelete
Glad you had fun... glad to have you back, too!
Thanks, Elizabeth! It was so good to be away, and it's great to be back!Delete
It looks lovely! So glad you enjoyed your time away and even more glad that you've decided to plug back in. I worried you might decide to go off the grid all together. ;)ReplyDelete
Thanks, Molly. It WAS lovely, and I briefly considered going off the grid (at least, personally - not for work, obviously! HA!).Delete
Ooooh it looks fabulous! last week we had 4 days in the blue mountains semi unplugged. i was speaking at an mk camp in the mornings and chilling taking bushwalks and drives in the crisp winter air with the fam!ReplyDelete
How did it go at the MK camp, Sophie?? As much as I love summer and going to the beach, I long for crisp autumn walks! Sounds delightful!Delete
