Enderby Treehouse a BC Adventure: Detour

Hey guys…starting a new series today called ‘Detour’. While travelling I’m forever searching for off-the beaten track destinations, little known restaurants, and unexpected treasures. More often than not, these experiences become my absolute favourite travel stories, and these gems are found because I took an unexpected detour. Just like my stay at the Enderby Treehouse that I’ll share today, the first of many happy detours!

Enderby Treehouse – A Happy Accident & A Detour

Years ago I watched a movie called Mr & Mrs Sen and the lead hero describes a treehouse located in some deep forest in South India where you can hear the sap falling from trees while you sleep, and the raindrops make music as they fall – for some unknown reason, this fantasy location that I don’t think actually exists (I’ve googled it to the end of time), stuck with me. It became the basis for my treehouse dreams, but I never really took them very seriously. 

I’m not a super outdoorsy girl, don’t go camping, and have a need for indoor plumbing & shower systems – so the treehouse life doesn’t seem like an instant fit. But as luck would have it, a few weeks ago I was heading to Armstrong BC for a trip, and a moment of serendipity connected me with an old friend on Facebook who, get this …. now lives in Enderby {20 minutes from Armstrong}, and built a treehouse in her backyard that she rents out! I could go on all day about the Universe and signs, and keeping yourself open, but for today, let’s talk Enderby Treehouse.

Embracing Motherhood: My Birth Story

Like many women I grew up believing that mothers are born the day they have their first child. The moment that little life leaves your body, you become a mother. In theory, that is correct, in practicality not so much. My birth story as a mom was nothing like that.…

I Am Malala: Book Review (8/52)

When I started this reading challenge, I really only had one rule – each of the 52 books I read would have to be written by a different South Asian author. I didn’t really have any thoughts about genres, fiction/non-fiction etc, but I assumed it would be fiction through an…

Vaisakhi Activities: 2018 Countdown Calendar for Kids

Planning Vaisakhi activities with your kids leading up to the festival gives you opportunities for teaching your kids about Sikhi, the history of Vaisakhi, and our Gurus, while building anticipation. I’ve always felt that mainstream holidays have so much ‘pre-event’ excitement that kids get caught up in, and our desi…
