I think it is really important for people to have a place like this. Somewhere that they can share but enjoy alone just as much. A place for thought, for relaxation or for nothing in particular. Especially as I get a bit older and things in my life are changing very quickly, even in ways I don't want them to - I find having a place of my own like a type of therapy. I didn't realize that this is what the High Knoll was to me until a few weeks ago.
I went for a hike to the high knoll Sunday morning and the sun was warm and the skies clear. It gave me time to think about my To Do list for the week, my goals for the future and just life altogether. Don't get me wrong, I love Instagram, Facebook and social media just as much as the next person but once in awhile it is nice to stop looking into other people's lives and really look into your own. Of course, after I did the hike, I got ice cream and scrolled through all the updates on my phone - but having that hour and a half to just pause, was definitely needed.
Plus with a view like this why wouldn't you want to get to the top:
I know this isn't a DIY or a post like that however, just wanted to share! I have a couple projects that are going to be posted this week and I'm pretty excited about them - hope you all had a great weekend!
