Whenever I’m able to get away for a little bit, even just for the weekend, I feel more like myself.

My favorite places are ones without any phone signal. Back in the “real world” everyone is always connected and distracted by their phone. It’s great to go to the woods and be with one another away from blue lit screens.

My anxiety goes down, and I start to feel human again.

Working in online media and marketing requires that I stay connected if not all the time, most of the time. The latest trends in marketing, social media, digital content, and constantly thinking about what to do next. It’s exciting sure, but it’s also exhausting.

But, I love the feeling of laughing around the fire, of sharing food and sharing space.

This weekend was a good one, let’s do it again soon.
