I must say, I am still far from perfect in the iPhone use department, but I can say that I'm starting to make habit of resisting it in my moments of boredom. And that in and of itself - allowing wonder and boredom at times, is so freeing.
The main thing I did was delete facebook off my iPhone completely. I'm not near as tempted by twitter or instagram, so for me this was enough for me to detach a little bit. I also turned off all of my notifications. Even email. I check on my terms, not when my iPhone notifies me. I say when, not my iPhone.
I thought I'd share my top 10 go-to blogs. The ones that, if I don't have time for anyone else, I am sure to check them regularly. I read far more blogs than 10 (try about 175 I'm subscribed to) but these all have a special place in my "Favorite Writers" folder.
I will say, I like them all for different reasons. Some, I love their writing. Some, I love their wisdom. Some, I love their friendship.
So, here you have it (in no particular order).

Wow - that was a hard list to narrow down. I feel like I could have done 11 or 12.
Oh, what the heck.

Now go visit one or two of these ladies and say hello. :-) Their words are worth hearing (in my opinion). Uplifting. Encouraging. Inspiring. Honest. Genuine. Making me want to be a better Mama and wife.
And stay tuned tomorrow, as I have a friend who so graciously is sharing part of her story here on my blog. A story of redemption and truth. I can't wait.
What are some your favorite blogs? The ones you must check even if you only have a minute?
