I’m Taking a Technology Detox


Hello from my happy place in the mountains, where I will be the entire week—NOT blogging, emailing, texting, tweeting, facebooking or doing my hair. I’m calling it a technology detox, something I’ve been easing into since reading this eye-opening post. Because as much as I love that I can connect with just about anyone at any given moment in a matter of seconds doesn’t mean I should. Especially at the expense of experiencing life. Oh yes, I’m going to cheesytown with this post. But when I consider simpler times (aka 1985), people were more focused on each other—or nature or the amazing bowl of pasta in front of them—than on their iPhone. And probably felt a whole lot more connected. Ponder that this week, and maybe take a day or a night off from all the noise should the spirit move you. This blog still be here when you return!  xo —Elizabeth
