Slowly easing myself back into social media after a month away. I'll be the first to admit, the initial days were challenging, the motor memory was strong but I quickly found myself engaged in more meaningful connections and only missing ways to share instantly with loved ones.
During the past 28 days, I said a tearful and heartfelt goodbye to our beloved family dog of more than 17 years, spent a gorgeous (and delicious) weekend in Napa, finally booked a much-deserved vacation, shot court side at a NCAA game as the only woman photographer, found some incredible furniture finds for my new home, creative directed a hospital photo shoot, and snuck in some 1:1 time with friends and family.
I have yet to re-download all social apps but once I do, notifications will remain off and icons will not live on my home screen.
Here's to small changes with pleasant rewards.
