I’ve been a little MIA lately… like an ostrich with it’s head in the sand.  For the last week I have been almost completely unplugged from the world wide web.  No Facebook.  No Instagram.  No Twitter, Blogger, or Pinterest.  Nada.  So if in the past week you announced you were pregnant, got engaged, or had a baby let me know.  Seriously, because I’ve been out of the loop… and it was wonderful.  For the past week we have been at the beach!


Soaking up the sun when possible but mainly just enjoying time together as a family.  This was Noah’s first trip to the beach (or coming from her lips it sounds more like the name for a female dog) and she absolutely loved it.  She may need to work on those long “e” sounds.  In the meantime we made sure her fingers weren’t pointing at or towards anyone while asking to “go to the beach”.  The whole trip was a lot of fun and hopefully I will be back later to share some pictures.


In the meantime, I have spent today trying to get caught up on laundry and and hitting the gym to burn off all the extra calories I ate in the past week.  All this to say I don’t have the survey results ready to share from last weeks blogiversary. So if you missed it there is still time to fill it out and let your vote be counted.  Go on… rock the vote!  Last week I also mentioned that I hoped to share pictures from way back when we first bought our townhouse.  Well, ML and I both agree that we have them… somewhere but we have yet to find them.  All computers and external hard drives have been checked but I must be missing them somewhere. I promise whenever I find them I will share them with y’all.

In the meantime, tell me about your summer vacation(s).  Do you unplug when you go on vacation?  Or is it prime time for you to get caught up on all the latest Facebook happenings? The verdict is still out whether unplugging will become a vacation norm for me but I sure did enjoy it.  Who needs Facebook for entertainment when you can sit and enjoy the beauty and majesty of the beach that God created?  It blows my mind that his thoughts toward me outnumber the grains of sand!

Psalm 139:17-18
How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them,
Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand.
When I am awake, I am still with you.
(NIV Bible)

What a mighty and loving God he is!

      We did have a great time. Of course anytime away from home with the family is usually a great time. Unplugging was completely unintentional but so relaxing. I get paranoid about posting vacation pics while we are away so this time I just opted to stay off social media all together. Haha!

    What a wonderful picture! I can tell Noah had fun. The first time we took our daughter to the beach, she would run away from the surf everytime it came surging towards her. We couldn’t stop laughing.

    Unplugging is what we all need to do now and then. It drives me crazy to see folks with their heads bowed – not in prayer, but looking at their phones. I’m glad you got away from technology for a while. We all need to sit back, take in everything God has created and treasure those memories.

      She had loads of fun but was scared of the water the first day. We got there right before the tropical depression hit so the waves were pretty rough the first day. Thankfully, they calmed down later in the week and she conquered her fears.
      All this technology really makes it hard to talk to God sometimes doesn’t it? We spend all our time doing, doing, doing, and so often miss the oppurtunity to sit and fellowship with the one that created us. I know I am guilty of that and God definitely convicted me of that this past week.
