unplug :: Guest post, Aisle to Aloha
Aloha Wild and Precious readers! I'm Lindsay from Aisle to Aloha! I'm excited to be guest posting for Blair today, but oh so sad to hear about the break-in at their house last week.
The break-in at David and Blair's place did make me think though. I'm sure it is stressful, inconvenient and frustrating to be without a computer and camera, but man, I'd imagine it's gotta be freeing too!
I realized the other day when I threw a little tantrum after my computer froze up and the rainbow wheel appeared, that I need a break. A break from the computer, from technology. These days, we are so plugged in-- blogging, tweeting, emailing, facebooking. One of the first things I do when I roll out of bed in the morning is pad over to the computer and check my email, my twitter, my blog comments. I love what I do and I'll be among the first to tell you that the people I have met through my blog and Etsy shop have become real, true friends.
But sometimes, ya just gotta unplug.
So this weekend, I'm unplugging. I mean, I live in Hawaii! And it's been far too long since I've taken my breakfast outside in the warm morning sunshine, or walked through my neighborhood and collected plumeria. Ooh, I may even grab a Starbucks cinnamon dolce latte and read through the magazine rack at Borders. Or catch a movie by myself! (I'd take my husband with me, but he's deployed in the middle of the Pacific somewhere.)
How will you unplug this weekend?
