An Ode to Bed..

Now that it is fall, the dreaded problem of getting up in the morning has gotten worse - because it's cool in the mornings and my bed is soooo snuggly and warm.





I've recently gotten around to making our bedroom a more inviting place to be - instead of the place where things go to die I've tried to make a warm, cozy, private space. We have nice bedding (it matches!) and I put up some soft beige curtains so the light is always dim. We have a memory foam mattress, soft jersey sheets, feather /blankets, and lots of pillows. A fan adds some white noise and a cool breeze, and of course there are lots of books within reach :)

I think it's important to make your sleeping area a place you look forward to being as we come into winter - I don't know about you but I practically hibernate during the cold weather months. I once read in Martha Stewart about "carving yourself a nook" and have tried to do that since.. during the days I make the bed so I have a quiet place to escape and nap/read. I do crafts/internet from bed sometimes too. And of course, all of that time spent sleeping...

We spend so much time in bed afterall, why not make it a great place to be? :) If you haven't already carved yourself a 'nook' for the coming winter... I suggest you should :)

I love bed, I think it's the best place in the whole world! We used to have a huge bedroom which wasn't good really because it bacame a bit of a junk room, the new room is much smaller and so cosier. I always feel safe and cosy in that room no matter what's going on. My bedside table looks a bit like yours - a big pile of books and about 3 jars of moisturiser!

Most of the time I find sleep to a nuisance because I'd rather be doing other things, but lately I've been snoozing quite a bit. (It's been a rough couple of weeks) I do like the idea of carving a nook for myself though - maybe just for reading before bed.

When we moved to Kingston we bought a new bed. We have matching sheets too. lol. It makes sleeping in on the weekends even better :)

I can't believe how fast Jude is growing!!

It's true, at this time of year I feel it's hard to get up in the morning. Daylight is shorter and it feels cooler in the morning, so I prefer staying under the sheets.

We just got one of those memory foam toppers too, so awesome.

I hate getting up early for work when its cold/dark out. wah

Your side of the nook smells like old cheese.
