A Brief Hiatus


Plainly put - what an awesome weekend. 
Brett has been very busy as of late (working 60+ hours each week)
It has really taught me to cherish the seconds I get to spend with him.

This weekend was especially great as we had the opportunity to visit the 
Mesa temple with the youth in our ward and perform baptisms for the dead.  
There is such a special spirit at the temple and I just love every chance I get to go.

I always love walking away from the temple hand in hand with my sweetheart ready to conquer the world. 
As we drove away from the temple, 
I thought a lot about my life and how I can bring the spirit of the temple more in my life and home. 

There was one thing that kept coming to my mind over and over again.

Before I go on, I must confess to you guys --- 
I am like completely addicted to the computer and my phone. 
I'll be honest,  it is disgusting how much time I spend reading blogs, 
checking instagram, and countless other time suckers. 

So I am making a goal to change. 
I think it is the perfect time, especially in preparation for general conference. 
So starting tomorrow I will be taking a brief week hiatus from social media. 
Call it a "fast" if you will. 

I'm going to try spending more time studying and preparing for conference, 
spending time with my hubby, and simplifying life just a bit. 
Honestly, I am a little nervous (yes I sounds like a complete addict right now),
but more than anything, just looking forward to having more family time. 

Feel free to join me!

PS. I will be continue working from home and will be checking 
my email as I continue to process and finalize any of your orders! 
You can reach me at my email court.aitken@gmail.com 
if you have any questions or need any help with orders!

  1. What a great idea! My husband's family does that for a week before every General Conference - they call it a no-screen week or a technology fast. I think that's great! Also, just wanted to let you know that I love your blog and LOVE everything you make. You're such an amazing designer! I've referred your site to several other friends and family in Young Women's and they're super excited about using your printouts. And another random note, I think we were in the same BYU student ward several years ago. :) So glad you guys are doing well, so excited for you and your first little one, and wishing you the best! - Paige

  2. I just made the same commitment on 9/23 of this year. I can't believe the difference it has made in my life. :D I'm hoping you'll find the same kind of joy & rediscovery of yourself & other time as you hold to this commitment.
