No Instagram After 8:30PM

January 11, 2017

Hey there, sweet friend!

If you're new here, I'm Lauren, owner of this little corner of the internet.  I am a creative to the core who is constantly inspired by good light, sweet love stories, pretty little details, exploring new places, and creative projects.  Here you'll find a little exploration of each!

looking for something?

I read something yesterday afternoon on a friend’s Facebook wall and it said,

 

“Remember when we used to say ‘BRB’ all the time when we were online? We don’t say it anymore. We no longer leave. We live here now.” -Unknown

 

It was one of those things that I ready that stopped me in my tracks and really got me thinking about the time I spend on my phone, and how much time I spend scrolling when I should be snuggled up with my husband instead.  How much of our lives is documented on “social media” and distracts us from actually living real life?!  So in the fashion of starting things that matter, I am challenging myself for the rest of the month when Morgan’s home to a no-Instagram after 8:30pm rule!

What about you? Do you ever find yourself in a lull because you’re distracted by your phones? Maybe this evening, try putting them down for dinner so that you can be fully present when you’re together!

Just a little fuel for thought :)

How about Instead You:

Curl up and read a good book
Snuggle up with the person you love… or your dog
Bake something yummy to enjoy
Join in on your favorite Netflix Binge
… or really, all of the above!

 


Photo by our sweet friend Annamarie from a few years ago… and an obvious pointing-out that we need some new anniversary portraits ourselves! Ah!
