Thursday Thrill – A Day in Bed

Haven't you had those days where you could lie in bed forever? Not the "Uhg, I don't want to get up, I'm so freakin' tired" kind of morning, but the "Ahh, these sheets feel glorious and it's the weekend. Oh honey??? Could you make breakfast today? I'll have toast and tea in bed please. Thank you." kind of mornings. These are rare, but beautiful to me. The mornings that you can wake up feeling...strangely...happy? Not disgustingly tired, but refreshed. I'm actually afraid to let my toes hit the floor on those mornings. Afraid that that bubble will quickly burst. But oh, those mornings of leisure and comfort do come and if I were to have one soon, I would want these items in my bedroom as I awake...

A Day in Bed

I would wake slowly, feeling crisp, cool sheets on my legs. Stretching my toes, the smooth sateen texture of organic fabric would softly caress my skin.

Of course, in my dream morning, I would wake up looking adorably tousled in gorgeous lingerie. Does this...scratch that...has this ever happened? Not yet, but I'm optimistic about the future.

Soft, morning light would start to filter into the bedroom through gauzy curtains. Once the rays reached the mirror hanging above the bed, sparkling prismatic images would burst into dance across the room.

Gently slipping on a vintage silk kimono, I would quietly get back into bed, open the morning newspaper (on my iPad) (I don't have one, but this is my dream so work with me), and await the breakfast that I can already smell toasting.

As I adjust myself on the bed into a comfortable seated position, the scent of lavender would start to become apparent and I would smile, remembering that I had left a sachet in my kimono pocket to freshen it a few days before.

Aromas of steaming tea, buttered toast, and lavender now mix together into the scent of what will surely be the perfect morning.
