A beautiful retreat

Do you know what my absolute favorite room in any house is? You thought I was going to say kitchen, huh? I was going to say bedroom, but I realistically I think we should call it a tie {Yes?}.

A bedroom is a retreat. A place for quiet. Or not {yes, we've descended into the gutter}. It's serene. A place to hang out all day in your PJs. To get ready for a night on the town. To snuggle with children/pets/lovers {not at the same time!}.

A place to feel secure, and warm, and absolved of responsibility, if only for the night. A place to get lost in worlds of stories, and sink into soft, cushy sheets after a hot shower.

A place to stretch and sigh at the beginning of a new day. A place to relish the way sheets feel on freshly shaved legs and cold toes.

A place where it's easy to relish nature. To take pleasure in the fresh air, the soothing sounds of outside.

Yes, these are all wonderful bedrooms which I will one day combine into my own perfect space.
