They Said There Would Be WiFi!!

I’m back! Just in case you noticed I was on vacation for a three day weekend. With my family – in the woods! With pretty much no Wi-Fi! Eeeek!

While a group of my husband’s family members stayed in tents and a pop-up, this beauty was our home for the weekend.

It was very cute. A simple, two room cabin with a nice lake front view. The campground advertized free Wi-Fi, but it was so spotty that I only had real access for a few hours on the first day we arrived. So, I decided to not fret, and spend the weekend unplugged and enjoying some quality family time. There was kayaking, laying on the beach, and late nights laughing by the campfire. I spent most of my time sitting in the shade relaxing, and socializing. It was a wonderful three days.

You can see a few more of my pics on Instagram, but for the most part this is what I got from my family when I pulled out my phone to snap a picture.

I never thought I would say this, but going three days pretty much tech free, was kind of nice. In a liberating kind of way. Am I happy to be back in the city, and at my computer? You betcha! Would I do it again? Absolutely. In-fact I’m already looking forward to next year.

      Thanks Stacey. It was very cute, and super clean inside. Not bad at all.

  3. I would have trouble surviving without wi-fi, but the cabin looks beautiful, and I’m glad you had a wonderful weekend!
