Unplugging and Unwinding

It's been a L O N G time since I unplugged and disconnected entirely, but when you're heading to a place with no internet connection and your iPhone was stolen anyway, it just makes sense to leave it all behind.

So here I go...leaving at the crack of dawn for a week in Small Town, Vermont, with no phone, no Macbook, no iPad (yes, my husband has me all teched out). Just me and my precious family. This is going to be SO good for me. Thank you, iPhone thief.

Here's what I've got on my list of things to enjoy (because I love lists!):

1. A little reading...

Doesn't the one on top just look like the perfect vacation book? I guarantee you it will be, because Katherine Center never disappoints. She's witty and a master of her craft (not to mention an awesome mom and an inspiring friend).

2. A little hammock swinging...

{My girls when they were babies...2003. How time flies!}

3. A little mommy-daughter bonding...

{Thanks for capturing the moment, Allison!}

4. And a little shopping...

 ...at the store that inspired me to "find my lampshade" back in 2000, which turned out to be cards and stationery, not lampshades; but I hope to find Judy and give her a big ol' Texas hug! (Read about how she inspired me here and here).

It's going to be a great week. I hope it is for you, too, Sweet Readers!

P.S. Something fun to do when I return: a "cocktail + sale" at Nest. If you're in Houston, stop by next Thursday, July 8, around 6:30 (3637 W. Alabama, Suite 160). All of her fabulous finds for your nest will be 10% off. I'll be there for sure! I've even got my eye on a table!


  1. Enjoy the down time Linsey, you certainly deserve a retreat! I will miss you this week but look forward to meeting up with you at Nest next week.
    Big hugs~

  2. Oh, you are the best! Thank you for featuring Get Lucky on your gorgeous blog!! And I'm a huge fan of Marisa De Los Santos, too. Hope you like Belong To Me! Have fun unplugging--and so sorry to hear about your phone! YIKES. ...But happy summer and many hugs!

  3. I'm glad you had fun!! And I hope the iPad withdrawals were not too bad!

  4. I hope you have a lovely break!!

    PS- sucks about your iphone, I hope Karma bites the person who took it from you
