Farewell FB

So, I've made the choice to remove myself from Facebook for a while. I'm ok, Dustin's ok, We're ok, Avery is ok- it's just something I'm doing for me.

I'm also challenging myself to be a better wife, mom and friend. I want to spend time talking to my man and watching tv with him instead of being plugged into my phone. I want to print and frame more pictures of AC instead of creating FB albums because its easier. I'm going to call and text my friends instead of checking their status to see how they are doing.

This is not something I'm doing to get others to leave FB and I definitely don't want it to seem like a soapbox speech. I'm just simply saying I'm leaving the network and why.

So, I am split 50-50 on where I stand about going back.


  1. I commend you for doing so. I have felt very convicted about FB for a while now too. I hate that phone calls, texts, hand written notes, heartfelt emails, get togethers, ect. have sometimes been replaced by FB in my own life...hmmm something I might think about as well!

  2. I left facebook for almost 2 months. It was hard. It does get easier, however. Since I've been back on it, I feel like I don't update it as much....but still I understand. I wish we could start a revolution and go back to the old days of phone calls, texts, letters, and visits from friends. Maybe someday Facebook's 5 minutes will be up like with Myspace. Who knows?
