Easter is fast approaching and this Easter is going to be spent feasting on these delicious treats from Baker ST in Williamstown!
How many of you will be getting away this Easter Weekend? 🐇
For us it will involve a little indulgence and then a lot of manual labour chopping up fire wood for these cooler months headed our way. It also means sourcing a fire guard so willow doesn’t burn herself on the fire 🙈
Tonight's dinner is trial run for a future backpacking trip.
As most of you know, I spend my weekends backpacking through the woods and for dinner, I'll usually bring a sort of dehydrated meal that is prepared by simply adding boiling water. I found this chana masala one from backpackers pantry and heard it was super spicy. I figured I would give it a try indoors before taking it on a future trip. It has my approval. #vegetarian#backpacker#backpackerspantry#glamping
With endless trails and acres to explore, horseback riding at Kinkára is just another way to feel the wind in your hair & breathe in the beautiful fresh air! 🐎
Where’s the most unique place you’ve ever ridden a horse? ⠀

As much as I know a fair bit about NZ wine, there are still bottles that make me nervous. I’ll explain.
I was generously given a wine, from a region I knew virtually nothing about, from people I’d never met before, that’s 11 years old, came with us all over NZ in a hot car, spent 24 hours at 40,000 feet at minus 30 odd, on the journey home, you can understand why.
How wrong I was.
Buckfast Pinot Noir 2008.
Nose- smokey, deep and concentrated dark berries, cherries and plums. A touch of violet, lavender and very light spice. Cassis and very fine leather.
Palate- silky fruits, gorgeous depth and richness but lifted by a vein of freshness, not from acidity but like a cool breeze sitting across the fruit.
Faint, very fine, quality leather, violets, a delicate oak element and ripe stems.
Acidity is present but gentle in nature. Fruits turn meaty with some balsamic.
Tannins are superb, fine with a touch of grip and needed for structure.
Beautiful gentle, fruit sweet finish and a return to char smoke.
Thank you to Patrick and Amber @valleyviewsglamping. Firstly for such an incredible stay, in the Waitaki Valley but also for giving me this beautiful bottle of wine.
This letter is to you. You who has had a rough week, month or year. You who feels beaten down. You who feels invisible. You who feels like you simply can not hold on any longer. You.
You are incredible. You are strong enough. You are loved and appreciated. You will accomplish amazing things in your own time. You make this world that tiny bit better. You have time. You will get through this. You can do it. 🧜♀️🧜♀️🧜♀️🧜♀️🧜♀️🧜♀️ We all struggle. We all suffer deeply (yes even mermaids) and sometimes it’s hard to see all the good things around us, like coffee, because our vision is clouded and we can’t see past the storm. But it will pass. It always does. Make sure you take the time you need for self care - be it a lazy day in your trackies or a weekend away from anything and everything. Find yourself some magic to hold onto to stay afloat.
I never thought I'd say this but...We have a handrail!
Over the years we have received unending criticism for not having a hand rail on our stairs but refused to install one for many reasons including: 1. Being totally comfortable with our stairs, 2. wanting to be able to sit on the side of the stairs, 3. not wanting to visually break up the space with such an obstruction and 4. not knowing how to create a legitimately sturdy enough railing that didn't eat up 4" of width from our stairs and frankly...didn't look like s#!t
If not having a railing is bad, having a railing that would bend or collapse upon a persons full body weight is worse. [ #falsesenseofsecurity ]
But now that we are inviting others to live in the space we decided to give it more thought and something clicked a couple days ago; it could be a wall mounted railing rather than a stair edge mounted guardrail!
We grabbed some left over walnut and steel flat bar and fashioned this little installation and connected it to the framing inside the wall using four large structural ledger screws, meant to hold a deck onto the side of a house.
Simple, minimal and unobtrusive but there when/if you need it. In fact we think it's beautiful; like functional art. 😍 #airbnbprep

If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy, if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has power to move you, if the simple things of nature have a message that you understand, rejoice, for your soul is alive. -Eleonora Duse
Our porch is 10x16 and it was the best thing we ever did. It basically adds another room onto our house in the summer time when we open up the French doors. We spend most of our time hanging out on it whether it’s making fires, star gazing, eating meals or spinning the bike. It’s so peaceful to just sit out on it and enjoy everything around us. Our next house will have a MASSIVE porch
