A Chance to Unplug

“Summer was our best season: it was sleeping on the back screened porch in cots, or trying to sleep in the treehouse; summer was everything good to eat; it was a thousand colors in a parched landscape; but most of all, summer was Dill.” – Harper Lee

This summer has been beautiful. Here in the U.S., Labor Day is the official end of summer. For me, the end of summer is a bit sad, as it’s the season I love most.


This year, to cap summer off, I spent a few days away in Tennessee on the River with family and friends. Yes, it was all about docks and water fun and sunshine, but one of the best parts was the chance to unplug.

Luckily the cell service is sporadic and the wifi doesn’t work outdoors. With great weather, we spent the entire weekend outdoors.

We saw a mother deer with her twin spotted fawns dawdling about several times, a Bald Eagle taking flight above us, and smiled so much from the water fun — skiing even for me — that we all wore permanent grins from all the laughter.

Labor Day fun

There is no better way to unwind than with time to unplug.

I hope you had a great Labor Day, too! Onward now to fall … have a great week!
