my new favorite place

i sit here in my new favorite place -


the base of a never finished tree house.

{this photo is from a while ago when i first got my camera}

it consists of only a floor and a ladder, but that is enough. surrounded by trees on the edge of the woods, it is the perfect spot to sit and read, write, or just think.


the sounds of chirping birds and little girls' laughter is carried here by the soft breeze.


there is bark on my back, dirt on my skirt, and sap on my hands.


but i don't care.


with the house and road behind me, i can sit here in peace.

  1. My brothers and cousins started a tree house YEARS ago and it's still just sitting in the woods at my grandparents... :D

    1. My brother and sister started this one and never finished it. It seems like a lot of tree houses remain unfinished.

  3. Aww! I love this! Little hiding places are so very important- aren't they? My little place is on top of our shed :-) It's quiet and surrounded by trees. It's a high off the ground so as to make it *extra* special.

    Love,
    Gabby

    1. Yes, they are important. It's so nice to have a place where one can go to be by oneself. Your spot sounds lovely! It's even more special when it's off the ground. *smiles*.

      Love,
      Emily.
