Work Days at Land of a Thousand Hills

Land of a Thousand Hills Coffee

It’s safe to say that Land of a Thousand Hills is one of our favorite places. . .and for good reason.

Back in August, this is the place where we had our first date. I picked the Norsk up from the airport (after he had traveled for about 15 hours), and we drove straight here.  The hours past like minutes, and before we knew it, we had talked until almost midnight.

Six months later, this was the place where the Norsk proposed.

We come here almost weekly. We work. We drink coffee. We listen to music. We stare out its massive windows that overlook the Chattahoochee River. We bring our lunch. We buy almond milk lattes or a french press of coffee. And we just enjoy life. It’s our tradition.

It’s an unusual place, this favorite little spot of ours. It’s full name is Land of a Thousand Hills – Walton Coffee House, but that’s kind of a mouthful. We just call it “The Coffee Shop.” But even stranger than its name is its location. The coffee shop is actually inside a gated apartment complex.

There’s something so warm and cozy about this place. It has couches and tables and comfy chairs, inviting you to sit down and stay a while. People have Bible studies here, they study, have business meetings, read novels, and hold interviews. It’s a place where you can just linger and escape the frantic scurrying of life, never feeling any pressure to hurry along or leave.

So if you’re ever here and bump into us, say hello! We’ll pull out one of the games sitting on the shelf in the corner. We’ll nibble on an oatmeal cookie, giggle at the awkward first date in the corner, and pretend like there’s nowhere else to be.
