Birthday Bucket List
Float In the Forest With Your Very Own Spherical Treehouse
Scout
by Scout

What's round in design and sleeps amongst the trees? The suspended spherical treehouses designed and innovated by Free Spirit Spheres, also known as your next birthday destination. For the outdoorsy folk, lodging in a suspended treehouse burrowed in nature is enough of a bucket list adventure - but nature does not end in your Free Spirit Sphere. The surrounding area serves as outdoor stomping grounds filled with adventurous activities like kayaking and hiking.

Cozy up in nature's man-made pods. Get the crew and go hiking. Celebrate your birthday amongst the trees and stars.

The Sweetest Greenhouse Wedding You've Ever Seen at Starling Lane Vineyard
Jordan Willner
by Jordan Willner

The enchanting Starling Lane Vineyard, in Victoria, British Columbia is more than just a “wino’s” dream, it is a fairytale venue for occasions and celebrations of all kinds. Dating back to the early 19th century, the old-world charm and elegance of this fascinating site is still strongly felt and can be seen in the preserved buildings, unique vistas, and antique wine barrels. It's not hard to understand why this spot is considered to be one of Victoria’s most sought after venues.

Upon hearing about a glam wedding that took place on these fabulous grounds, we sat down with husband and wife photography team, Shari + Mike, who gave us the inside scoop on the stylish wedding they shot. Everything was literal perfection. From the bride and groom to the immaculate floral designs and antique layout, it is clear to us that everyone involved in making this day so special succeeded... and then some!

Wickaninnish Inn

500 Osprey Ln, Tofino, BC, Canada

There’s a serene lightness to watching a bad storm. It reminds you how good you have it, to be able to keep shelter and watch the world tremble. Here in the northwestern wilderness, though, this isn’t just some cloudy day or rainy night that talks you out of running errands or meeting up with friends. It’s well beyond that, instead a fantastical barrage of tempestuous water thrashing the rocky coast of Canada.

An onslaught of gale force winds, giant swells, and lashing waves relentlessly barge and blitz the rugged west coast of Vancouver Island—and then, thanks to the Wickaninnish Inn, there’s you, bundled up and beholding the fierce nature of...well, nature.

Brunch Bucket List of the Week: Native Tongues Taqueria
Cortnie Fausner
by Cortnie Fausner

One of our personal FLAVORite cuisines is Mexican. Being San Diego natives and so very close to the border, you could say that we are corn tortilla aficionados and spicy salsa lovers from way back. But the heart of the matter is that we’re just spoiled. Crispy rolled tacos, bountiful smoked meat burritos, fresh and spicy guacamole and homemade chips… all day, errrrrryday if we want. And we do. As we’ve been raised on veritable mother’s masa, we really aren’t quite sure who wouldn't want to munch on superb Mexican flavors any time of the day. But if you live in snowy Canada, maybe said tacos aren’t as readily available. until now.

This week’s #BrunchBucketList goes to a corn-tortilla-making cantina so good it’ll make you cry in Calgary, Canada where every day is Taco Tuesday. Ole!
