Life away from Keyboard, Mouse and Monitor

Hello again blogger friends. I recently took a small much-needed vacation from the internet, do you ever need those? It was mainly to remember what I loved outside of the cyberworld again. I don't like forgetting about those things... and I feel like sometimes it's easy to, especially when so much of my day is spent online. Don't get me wrong, I love my little Etsy business, and I am grateful to be able to have part of my income come from self-employment. However, I noticed I was starting to think of my computer as a TIME SUCKER. Sometimes it feels like there are a zillion sites to "report" to on a weekly basis. Ever feel like you can't keep up? It gets a little overwhelming. I think a WWW vacay is necessary every once in a while, to get back in touch with one's own thoughts and creative pursuits. I feel like I used to be much more creative, and I miss that!

How's your relationship with the internet? Is it hard to be disciplined about your time on it?

I'm hoping that this little break has given me inspiration to start blogging more creatively on a regular basis. Only time will tell. ;)

Here are a couple of photos taken while I was away.

Meeting a new furry friend: I can't wait to have a dog again one day.

Shadow silhouettes with my son: He's growing up so fast, I feel like he's changing over night these days.


  1. Yeah, my relationship with the computer is a bit obsessive, I admit. Breaks are good.

    I love both these photos! That shadow shot of your son is so cool. And you and that puppy dog are both adorable. I love the prominent placing of dog paws right up front.

  2. I take breaks too and it definitely helps spark some more creativity. Also, there's never anything that your missing by taking a break either. The interwebs will always be here. ;)


I really appreciate your comments, thank you. ♥
