We were in Rixford, PA essentially where the red dot is above, its a small town and the entrance sign calls it a village "Welcome to the village of Rixford" I believe it said the population is around 200!! We had no internet and no cellphone service. Every now and again if we got into a larger town I would get a few bars of service but for the most part, nothing!!
It really is such a sweet little town and its absolutely gorgeous with all the trees and the weather was perfect (they don't have central air and we just left the windows open at all times and that was sufficient even chilly at night!). We basically spent our days sitting on the back porch, L would play and I would read or watch him play. He was in heaven! He loves to be outside and the center of attention and both of those were happening in a big way on this trip!
It was so sweet to see L interact with his great grandparents who were so smitten with him and thought he was the funniest thing, it was so sweet to see them smiling and playing with him. It was also so good to see L get to spend time with my dad, my dad has really up until now only seen L about 3 times in his life which does make me very sad but it was good to see them spend time together.
There are hardly any pictures because I was tired of trouble shooting,I forgot my camera so I only had my phone so the quality is crappy, but alas here we go.
Not having access to phone and internet was a nice break that I really needed, its so easy to get caught up in social media and I feel like a lot of my time was being sucked by it lately so I think God put this trip at the right point in my life. It was a nice opportunity to be in the moment and just simply enjoy it. It is such a simple life there and it really made me realize that thats what I need right now. I see a lot of decluttering and simplifying in my near future!
