Sweet Escape: Being Unplugged

Sweet Escape: Being Unplugged

I still can’t say enough about the joys of being “disconnected” or “unplugged” at times from the computer. It is a beautiful thing! Here are some shots I took of my son last weekend on the Willamette River. Bliss!

  8. Congrats on the plug from Washington Post! Way to GO! Enjoy your weekend…

  9. You are so right!! I just came back from Toronto with my daughter and I turned my cell phone off and made sure I wasn’t near any computer. Besides crossing the border, it was great fun to be alone with my nineteen year old, visiting our past together and away from everything. I came back totally recharged. Blessings, Karen

  10. Hi Melissa,
    Lovely pictures! How nice it is to walk away from the computer, especially as spring begins to unfold. Enjoy, and congrats on the Washington Post feature!

  11. Seems like you had a nice day at the water. Looks very warm too, here it’s very sunny and nice today, but I still want my jacket on LOL.
    And how lovely for you to get your blog on that watch. Must be very inspirering for you.
    Hope you have a great Sunday.
    Love Elzie

    How fun!!! Ducks are a joy to watch. They just go on like you aren’t even there.

    Your son is just so cute. Give that sweet little boy a HUG from me and Doogs.

    Gorgeous photos!

  18. So sweet! I love ducks. My parents have a pair that have been coming to their place every spring for the last 10 years.

  19. What a cutie! An adorable son — it can’t get any better than that!


  20. Yup, I agree. It’s good to be “unplugged” for a few days at a time. We’re going to Grand Cayman in a few weeks and I’m looking forward to no phone, computer, NO KIDS!! Just hubs and me. Oh, we so need a trip to relax together.



  21. These photos are amazing–your son looks delightful, and that top shot should be a postcard. Here’s to disconnecting :)

  22. And oh my goodness, Melissa–The Washington Post! Where have I been? Congratulations!

  23. Congratulations on the feature.

    To borrow a phrase – unplugging, it’s a good thing! Glad you had a great time.


  24. What lovely photos. Your son looks like he is having fun.


  25. I’m so glad you stopped by my blog. We probably live near each other. Have a happy Wednesday. Kathi
