I love new sheets on the bed. It is so wonderful when they are just slightly crisp from being folded in the closet. When the cold air requires an extra blanket on the bed, it is absolutely devine to finally turn off the lights at night. The bed requires much less "making" in the morning when the husband is not tucked in beside me, and I suppose this is my consolation prize. I am going to bring out the sweaters and the winter clothes this week. Its almost time to use them!
