This weekend we took a very necessary break from electronics and the rest of the world by heading out to camp near the Clackamas River near Estacada, Oregon. I had a bit of anxiety when I realized my cellphone had no reception. But, after a bit, it was a relief to just sit back and rest. We enjoyed amazing food on the fire, simple (yet delicious) cocktails, and sleeping with the stars overhead. Breathtaking and refreshing.

Today we came back to reality where I was greeted with 100 emails and several messages. I probably should have told someone we were going away for a bit… Whoops.

I also attended a friend’s memorial this afternoon. It reminded me that taking moments to unplug and enjoy the simpler things in life is very much important. Not saying that you can’t be connected and still connect– but, sometimes, it helps to put the phones/computers/video games down.

Happy Sunday everyone!
