On Taking Some Time to Smell the Seaweed

I have a great excuse for missing my last two blog posts. This is where I spent the last 4 days:

This was the view from our cabin on the lovely Catalina Island. Not too shabby, eh? And believe it or not, places actually do exist where there is no cell or wireless service. This is one of them, and I couldn’t have been happier to spend 4 days there, completely unplugged.

The kids had tons of fun hiking, kayaking, collecting rocks and you guessed it, smelling seaweed. It was a perfect way to kick off the summer!

    I’m breathing deeply in my little prairie aerie, and I can just about smell it! Your refresher time sounds lovely.

    How great to unplug. :) I try to everyday, but I don’t have the discipline! This would be another great reason to go on vacation! Catalina is beautiful. Glad you guys had a good time!

       I really don’t have the words for how wonderful it was. I didn’t even take my computer, and I felt so FREE! Hope you and your family get to go on vacation soon!
