It Was NOT Easy at First
In fact, it was difficult in ways I couldn't imagine. When I wanted to meet a friend for lunch, I couldn't shoot a quick text to her saying, "Hey, I'm here at the table in back," and she couldn't drop me a note saying "Hey, gonna be 15 minutes late, my baby had a diaper blowout." Ah, the digital age. We're so accustomed to a level of constant communication, that it can be hard to function in some circumstances without it.
Also, I had to commit directions to memory, because . . . no GPS. And no Spotify in the car, either. No emails, no phone games, just a whole lot of quiet. After I pushed past the discomfort, I was LOVING it.
