The HemLoft

The hem loft is an amazing construction built in the woods of Canada.. I first heard or read about the story through a tumblr post and i was hooked.
The egg shaped treehouse was secretly built by Joel Allan in British Colombia.
It is open for everyone to enjoy. Theres just a minor detail.. the exact location of the "egg" is still a secret, so if you want to find it you better get cracking.

One of the things I love is when people have the guts to step outside the box and follow their dream/heart. Which is what this guy has done!

I would highly recommend checking out the web sight, where you can read all about his story and the background of the hemLoft and the whole process.

cherry blossoms

The cherry blossoms are blooming and you know what that means.... SUMMER is just around the corner!!.  This is my favorite time of the year, when everything blooms and starts to look green and lush again.  Seeing the tree filled with little pink fluff balls is just the best. 
I had such a relaxing weekend, i managed to take a 3 hour long hike in the mountain with my mom, walk barefoot outside and soak up the sun... 

Have a wonderful day!

Easter vacation

Vacation is almost over, and its back to work. Here are some snippets from my down time. 
We have been lucky with the weather the last couple of days, in the beginning it didn't look to bright but the sun finally decided to show. Honestly it feels like summer..in april?!.. Hiking this time of year is the best, the grass isn't to high, the bugs isn't buzzing with life and the temperature is pretty decent when its not to windy.. 

With all of this free time I've been getting more into painting and drawing again, i forgot how therapeutic it is, being able to shut your brain off for awhile. 

You never fully appreciate the thing you've got until you don't have them anymore. Our beloved cat has been with us for 11 years now.. The thought of losing her is downright awful. Seeing her getting weaker and losing about half her bodyweight in little over a week was sad.  Thankfully we got her to the vet, as long as she gets her medicine..its looking promising.. *crossing my finger*

Happy weekend

Easter vacation finally, between working 2 jobs and a sick kitty i haven't had the best of time. My room is a mess I'm pretty sure i had a floor at one point and a chair in the corner.. so a good vacation was well needed. As always i don't have any plans what so ever, which is good because i am planing a trip in the summer which i won't reveal quite yet (and i need to save for).
I swear the wether is having some serious PMS it has been switching from sunny, blue skies to overcast, hail..

Luckily i got to squeeze a little hike in before the weather decided to go crazy.
The view was absolutely beautiful.

Take care!

sunny days, hello spring

After a long month with lots of work and new challenges (honestly can't believe i made it out alive.)  I am finally able to relax and have a cup of tea outside in the sun.  The weather has been so nice the last couple of weeks it rely feels like spring, the flowers are blooming , it would be a shame not to take advantage of it.
With the days filled with unexpected work, its had been hard to keep up with blogging. Hopefully ill be back on track in no time :)

Have a nice weekend everyone!
