Social Media-less October!

Helloooo and good morning! So I've been thinking for awhile that it would be good for me to do a little social media cleanse for a month (ek yes a whole month!) and give my mind and eyes a break from the screen. I was inspired to do this by a few bloggers I follow who also have recently taken full months off social media and all of them have had totally different experiences. I've done social media breaks before, but only at the most a week before hopping back on. I'm excited about this break but to be honest I don't think it will be easy for me or fun. It won't be easy because I'm totally a mindless Instagram scroller when I have a free minute during my days and I love looking at all the beautiful pictures of places around the world. But since I've never actually done a month-long social media break, I thought it would be the perfect time to do it and challenge myself! I'm positive I'll be fine without it, and I'll be able to make it a whole month, but I'm probably going to miss it at first haha. Has anyone else ever taken a complete month off of social media? I'm curious.

(The only exception I'm making for this is on October 1 since I'm being hosted at Devils Backbone Hoopla festival. I'll be on my Appalachian Love Instagram and putting up an instastory that day, but after that I'm checking out!)

Please, during the month of October email me with any questions instead of messaging me via Instagram. Instagram seems to be the #1 way y'all communicate with me which is great, but if you need help planning a trip shoot me an email or I wont respond! I'll have a reminder on my Instagram too in a few weeks right before I sign off :)

ps. the picture at the beginning of this post is from the summit of Spy Rock in Virginia! It's an awesome place to camp too during the fall- although it can be a bit crowded some weekends.
