The Rock

When we bought the land to build our house on back in 2006, it was a jungle. It was only when we cleared it off that we discovered a huge rock jutting out over the creek.

While our house was under construction, we would pick up something to eat, check on the progess of the house, then head to the rock for a picnic. When we lived in the suburbs, we would drive 2 hours to enjoy a view like this.
And now it's just a short walk from our back door. And whenever I'm out on the rock looking over the water, all of the stress that goes along with everyday life just disappears. It's like a mini vacation--without the stress of traveling, packing, and planning for a vacation.


I hope I never get used to it.
