Due to the nature of my work, and my husbands, we communicate with our clients via email and social media. Since our clients are scattered around the country and working across several time zones, we don’t always have the luxury of an 8-5 job. That means that we’re often answering emails and trying to communicate when we’re also enjoying family time.
While we don’t watch a lot of television in our home, it’s become a bit of a nasty habit that we’re all on our devices way too much. We’ve made a commitment to unplug more and walk away from all the distractions that come with phones, tablets, and television. Disconnect from all technology and enjoy some quality time! #ad #ourJOLLYTIME

One of our favorite things to do is family game night. Whether we’re playing cards, a board game, or Foosball we love to spend the evening together playing games and snacking. JOLLY TIME Pop Corn is one of our favorite snacks to enjoy during game night.
When JOLLY TIME Pop Corn invited us , we knew that we’d be turning off our phones and tablets, turning off the television, and breaking out the board games (many of them from my childhood). We unplugged from all of our technology, grabbed our favorite card game, and popped a bag of JOLLY TIME Pop Corn Blast O Butter popcorn.
We had so much fun laughing, playing games, snacking on JOLLY TIME Pop Corn, and catching up on our day. We talked and caught up and everyone got silly. While this isn’t really something new for our family, making sure we unplugged while we spent this time together was.
Sometimes we all need a reminder that things can wait. In such a technology-driven world it’s sometimes easy to not be as present as we should be and to let distractions pull us away at all times. We need to do a better job of setting boundaries, carving out time that we won’t allow ourselves to be distracted and pulled away.
