“I love this photo from IKEA’s holiday mailing! My grandmother would help me make forts with blankets under her dining room table. It was my favorite thing to do and I still remember the feeling of being so cozy and safe and happy in my little fort. Did you make a fort with blankets and a table as a kid? Remember & savor that wonderful feeling. My wish for you is to feel like that in your home & your heart during this unusual holiday season & every season!”
