Sleeping in Trees

Well, tree houses to be more specific. Right after college, my aunt let me move into her second home, a small house, on stilts, in the middle of the woods. The driveway was impassable when it rained and I had to face my intense fear of spiders daily, but it was one of the best places I’ve ever lived. There were many a Friday where I would turn off my phone, grab take out on the way home and spend the whole weekend basking in the blissful solitude.  Octavian and Stanley loved it too, they would spend all day curled up on the bed in loft, or stretched out on the screened in back porch. When I saw this post featuring this gorgeous tree house retreat, it brought back all those wonderful memories.

Did you see the giant red slide?! One of the coolest things about this particular tree house is that owner Lynne Knolton used reclaimed and upcycled items to build it.

About Julie

My name is Julieanna Bucior, but I go by Julie (unless I'm in trouble). I'm thirty one. I am a bookkeeper by day, rogue fashion designer/crafter/amateur baker by night. I spend most of my time feeling like a kindergartner trapped inside an adult's body. I love reading, hanging out with my crazy cats and being silly. I'm pretty much the girl next door, with a twist.
