This weekend, we tried a little something new on Sunday. We put away the phones, the ipads, the computers, and spent the day 100% unplugged.

It was so needed.

And it was SO awesome!

We played with each other. Read books, made and drank copious amounts of tea. Did puzzles, played with lego, drew, dreamed, and talked to each other. Like really talked.

(Some of us even went back to bed when "we" realized there was no morning show to be had!)

We invited some friends for dinner, and then spent the afternoon tidying up the house.  Finishing off the weekend with a delicious meal with friends, and a clean house, full of love for each other was perfect. 

We'll do it again, no doubt.


  1. Jenn, I found your Blog from the links on Heather's Hibernate workshop. I love your post about unplugging. Thanks for sharing the pics. My favorite of course is your son who went back to bed when no tv was at hand. Love it! And your living room is so lovely. Guess you won't have a hard time with today's task of seeking gratitude for our homes. Although it is sometimes easier for others to see things we don't isn't it. Why is that? What silly creatures we are. Anyway, nice to have found you. Susan from Montana

    1. Thanks Susan for stopping by! I haven't had a chance to explore all the other Hibernate blogs yet, but I look forward to it!

  2. Just discovered your blog today and I love it. I have been kicking around the idea of doing a tech-free Sunday for a while, though have not implemented it yet. TV is easy - we don't have it, but the computer is difficult - my husband works on his side business (our future) and I enjoy spending some time in blog land. But it would make me feel great to know that we are doing it for one day. Love the hot chocolate in the mason jars, but they need some of the mason jar cozies that I just knitted - we use mason jars for as much as possible around here. But what really made my day - the comment in your Small Noteables section about the funnel in the mouth. Almost made me spit out my soup! I live in State College, PA, home to Penn State University, one of the biggest party schools in the country, and I went to college there, so I knew exactly what you were talking about! Though I am proud to say I don't have the skills to do it! Oh, and I love handmade soap without chemical fragrances in them, which is hard to find, and yours look great!
