Swiss Family Worthington

What does my family need?


A good book, a sunset, a delicious meal.  Our days are filled with magic moments that take us away from the everyday grind.

I’m learning that I need to make more room in my life for these moments.

Lately I’ve been scaling back and spending time daydreaming. For me, daydreaming is essential to creativity.

Recently I’ve been imagining packing up the family and going on a family adventure. Our family vacation would be  spending a year on a tropical island, in a home nestled in the trees. Now that is something to remember!

Can you tell I’m inspired by Swiss Family Robinson?

The boys could have a tree-wing dedicated to a various boy interests. Archery, epic jungle spit ball and lots of wild boy stuff.  That staircase? Would be the perfect place for one brother escape when the brothers get too loud up high.

What else does the Swiss Family Worthington tree house hold?

Lots and lots of awesome. Come browse my daydream and see what you’ll be inspired to dream about. Enjoy!
