Happy New Year! Do you make resolutions? In the past I have not made resolutions. Recently I have been more focused on setting goals in different areas of my life. Last year I made a goal to achieve balance. With a career, family, friends and volunteering now I realize that balance may not be achievable. So instead of balance I am going to focus on being more present. So when Evite asked me with to take a device free dinner challenge I knew it was exactly what our family needed.
Kurt and I both admit to being addicted to our phones. We model the worst behavior for Bailey. Over Christmas break we have let our normal restrictions of YouTube slide from just quiet time to sort of whenever she wants to watch it. This challenge has been great for us to re-establish our rule of no phones at the table.
High and Lows
This challenge has been amazing for all of us. This challenge got us back to sharing highs and lows for each day. We share the best and worst parts of each day. For Christmas we also got family questions that we cannot wait to use as fun conversation starters. It is incredible when you put the distractions away.

Personally I love using Evite invitations. They help make getting together effortless and more memorable. It is always the easiest way to bring friends and family together for all types of events. If you have older kids this Take a Break invite would be perfect for a family dinner. If not it is a great invite to use for your next dinner party.
Are you ready to take the pledge to go device-free during dinner and spend quality time with friends and family?
