Sleeping Under The Stars At HOME

After the Summer guests have gone, the smoke has cleared from local fires and before it gets too cold, our daughter and I set up a tent-less room on our deck to stargaze and sleep in the cool evenings.

Extra comfy using our indoor linens
A sheet to cover during the day

Every morning we take a big sheet to cover our bed during the hot day to protect it from leaves or even the dog should he sneak onto the deck and decide to take a nap. So far so good.

GREAT bonding time

Yesterday our daughter woke up at 6am, still dark and said "Mom hurry come out the stars are so pretty" I was awake in the house only to rush out, snuggle and star gaze with her. We saw a shooting star and it felt so awesome to share this moment with her.

I highly recommend it!

I love it, isn't it the best, I love glaping it up at home, so much to be said for sleeping under the stars in any why shape or form you can.

I love this idea. I must admit that, having camped for as long as I can remember I do succumb to the urge of luxury camping equipment including those from (my personal favourite but the choice is yours!) but I have to admit you make the DIY look seem very appealing! I must give this a try when it is too cold to actually venture out!
