A Valentine's Day Staycation


 Sam and I love staycations. We've been building pillow/blanket forts  in our home for years, but finally Sam decided to build us a portable teepee so that our staycations could be a little less kindergarten and a little more chic. We usually keep it in our creative space, but I recently pulled it into the living room in preparations for V-day. As soon as I placed the last pillow into the teepee the dogs instantly decided it was their new love nest. I only wish I had a video to show you just how loved up my two pups got. Apparently teepee staycations bring the romance out, even in dogs.
This year, skip the usual Valentine's Day cliches and build a fort. I promise you won't regret not spending money on an overpriced dinner.

lol, sounds like my dogs. My little Yorkie considers our faux fur throw her personal bed. Looks cozy and romantic.

Cheers!

Sounds perfect to me. I normally don't like Valentine's day so I'm working all evening but if I wasn't we'd definitely have to build a fort. Ours usually involve the sofas - nowhere near as chic as a teepee!
