  • The gift of time. It’s something I’ve been thinking about a lot lately. If I’m being honest, I’ve been really uninspired to share on this platform recently and I think a lot of it relates to spending more quality time with my family. The more time I spend with them, the more I realize how much I don’t miss this space. Am I allowed to say that? Is that bad to say?? I never want to look back and regret having my nose buried into my phone missing moments happening right in front of me. We can’t get time back. And for some reason that truth is being drilled into my mind lately. So here’s your reminder to do the same! Don’t let your phone control you. Try to put it down more often - Leave it at home when you take the kids to the park or maybe go off Instagram for a day or two. It feels weird encouraging you do this ;) but you might be like me and realize things do need to change a bit! ... Just don’t miss my posts😜😜

Absolutely NOT a bad thing @ellabrooksblog! My little girl turned one recently and the more and more I realize she will only be little once. Enjoy every moment with your family. 💓

I phone detox fully for 24 hours every week, and require that to be done by anyone who uses a phone I pay for! Which happens to be a lot these days.

You go mama! So good of you to recognize something needs to change!! I’m right there with you...social media can drain you sometimes. Thank you for the reminder and for being so inspiring! 💕

Smart words... this mindset is why your such a “light” in what can many times be darkness (social media)

I agree which is why I'm seeing this past when it's 1 day old! 😀 family is 100% more important! ♥️🌹

Absolutely gorgeous girls. 💖

I totally understand and feel the same way! Some days I think I should just delete my accounts and focus on “real life” and what’s really important.

Words of wisdom!! Seriously!! I have 4 kids and a husband. Instagram who? Haha it's so hard to not be on my phone, but I need to put.it.down.
