We each have an iPhone.
This is not to boast in the technology we own, but to merely point out the plenty of opportunities we have to read email, check Facebook, scan Twitter, skim a blog or surf the Internet
instead of talking to each other, listening to each other, holding hands and just being together.
The challenge we've started for the next two weeks: no screen time while the other is home.
While there are certain exceptions (looking up a recipe online) the idea is to spend the time with each other, rather than online.
It started Monday and I hate to say it, but it's already hard. But I know it's worth it. All relationships-- marriage, friendship, family-- require work and devotion and time to make them flourish.
And I'm telling you guys this now because blogging may be a little sporadic as I date my husband and enjoy the sunshine and summer Seattle is finally getting.
Have you ever taken a break from technology or something else that got in the way of an important relationship?
