Screen Free Week 2013 is Almost Here!

Did you know it is almost time for this year's Screen Free Week?! With all the spring time craziness I forgot to mention this amazing idea!

This year from April 29th to May 5th you can pledge and participate in a "Screen Free" Week with loads of other people who know that they can find entertainment away from a screen!

Last year
 our family had a great time using our screen free evenings working on projects around the house, playing games, going for hikes and cooking together. {find more ideas of screen free entertainment here

Remember it is all about spending time having fun with family, friends, nature, yourself... and not with technology that needs to be plugged in. If you need to use technology for work don't worry in the slightest. This pledge is for your entertainment time and will not create a strain on your working hours. And if a full week isn't for you plan a night or two of something screen free to do!

If you want to know more or find out ways to get involved head over to:

Enjoy your screen free time!

around these parts...

April has moved quickly, and in a tempo that isn't quite typical. 
One thing that is for sure... I'm out of my blogging and photography routines.

I think it has something to do with the rush to get our garden ready! And all the spring growth that needs attention around our yard.

Oh and of course the little vacation to visit some family in Florida at the end of March.

The plan is to get settled into some routines before April is long gone. We will see how that goes :)

Hope your week has been happy!

Spring Photo Fun {Yellow/Easter}

That's right. Back with a Nurture Photo Challenge! This time for spring. 

FOR SPRING! Which makes me smile so big that I can hardly see clearly enough to focus my lens and snap a photo! {I just love spring!}

Thank goodness for springy-yellow days! And thanks to Rebecca, Kristi, and Alicia for putting on the Spring Photo Challenge!

Running Goals {50 miles in March}

Due to several snowy, chilly days I spent more time at the Y than desired. 

But lucky for me I was able to complete some pretty great morning runs during an Easter visit with family in Florida.

April's goal is 48 miles. I'm a few days behind but I'm totally in.
