Today I got to spend some time alone. Alone? You might ask. Yes this concept that I have no idea what it is anymore. Since becoming a parent I have had very few instances of being alone. Mostly they are when I drive to and from work. I even did a blog a while back about this. I really enjoy having my son with me all the time. I know soon enough he will be off in the world and I won’t get to have so much quality time with me so I soak it up every chance I get.
Today he went to his grandparents on his dad’s side for a few hours and I got to be alone. Its a very strange feeling being alone when you are always with someone.
I decided to make the best of it and I took my dog and ventured out to a waterfall area that I had been brought to about five years ago. Its called Horsehead Lake it’s located in Clarksville, Arkansas.
I wasn’t even sure if I would be able to find it. You have to park on the side of the road and then walk across the side of the lake which is a huge natural dam. Then you walk through the Forrest a short distance. To find this……
It’s just as beautiful as I recall.
Even the dog enjoyed himself.
This is the top of it.
I just love being outside. There is so many beautiful things to see around here.
It was a beautiful day.
I sat back and reflected on my life. How the last time I had been to this spot was just a month or so before I got pregnant. And so much has changed in these last five years. I don’t think I have had time to even process some of the changes until now. It was nice to sit and reflect on life.
As I walked back I saw this on the other side of the natural dam.
I just love this picture!
I hope your having a good day in your corner of the world!
