Sunday Surf: Time for family

Welcome to the Sunday Surf, a tour of the best blogposts I've read throughout the week.

I am visiting my parents this week, and I decided that was a good reason to unplug, destress, and bask in the present with my family. The busyness will come back to us, but it's nice to have these moments, yes?

I've scheduled a lot of posts this week in advance but have been mostly in absentia in truth. And for that reason, I'm going to share just two links that speak to me in this time:

"Life Without Status Updates" >>

She's said it for me, so hop over to read.

But the pulling gets weaker. After a few days, I forgot to carry my phone with me a couple of times. The information and news that seemed so necessary last week, became more unnecessary, with each passing day. The immediate loses its charm. I started to forget. I began to relearn patience and observation, being present, and how to embrace boredom.

Everybody's Free to Wear Sunscreen

Thank you to Emily of Embrita Blogging for giving me a video to think about and enjoy. She's always got the best media to share.
