Day 6 & 7 – Disconnecting & Reconnecting.


Most would agree, that less is more. This weekend was a good reminder for me of this principle.

This past weekend, we took a brief retreat into the wilderness of Northern Michigan. We were able to spend a day and a couple of evenings with good friends doing a quick camping trip. Between the isolation, good company, great meals, and fantastic times, this post is affirming the importance of getting off the grid. This past weekend was filled with a snowshoe trip along untouched trails, board games inside a cabin, an outhouse, a cute pup, and wonderful friends. This is one of my favorite ways to recenter myself and evaluate what matters to me. I was able to disconnect from work, technology, and distractions in general to just be in the wild. In terms of a minimalist lifestyle, this allows me to reconsider what exactly I need, and what becomes extra. I hope you enjoy the photos!

Blu. We capitalized on this weekend to use our snowshoes, since it’s been so warm this winter.
