Don’t you just love your bed?

 

It is always so comforting to crawl in at the end of the day.
The cool feel of your pillows.
The scent of your laundry soap.
The thought of your sheets, freshly cleaned and smoothed.
The warmth of familiarity.
I am one who always, always, always makes my bed in the morning.  Mostly because I love the thought of pulling off the sheets at bedtime.  To me, an unmade bed screams “messy” and “dirty”, but a made one just feels “clean”. (I can probably thank my mom for that ;)).
A few things I also love about my bed:
-our down comforter in the fall/winter; our handmade quilt in the spring/summer
-the bedside tables: his-neat and orderly, mine: littered with 2 stacks of books, an alarm clock always set 7 minutes ahead, and a dolly or two (thanks, MG)
-my favorite set of sheets: white, grown softer and thinner with use and age, with a hint of stretch.  I always get a little extra excited to crawl into bed when they are dressing it.
-my pink fur that is out of place in color and fraying and nappy, but I love it.  It has my name on it and a giant white bear and a tag that says “Made with love from Nanow”.

 That’s why I love mine, but what do you love about your bed?

    ahhh, we love our bed too. we made a good call with some of our wedding registry sheets and they are still going strong and getting softer. And I love down comforters too – so warm and cozy. Love getting into bed every night and hard to get out when a certain little man is crying 🙂

    I have so quickly forgotten what that stage is like! I bet your bed is all the more precious these days 🙂
