Who needs marriage counseling when you have a California king

Long has it wallowed in unimaginative dullness. Our master bedroom. Although fully equipped with satellite TV and roominess, the space has been used for just sleeping in the two plus years we've lived here. And since the boy insists that he gets a better night's sleep in our bed, we decided to upgrade. It was hard to say goodbye to our hand-me-down four poster frame that sat up high with room underneath for storage. But, my Lord, who knew one could sleep the whole night with nary a leg or elbow poking you ...


Now that we have this behemoth of a bed, the room has newfound clout. We want to hang out in there, lounging and watching TV. Even Liam appreciates all the treasures locked away from the rest of the house. He loves to turn on his great-great grandma's old record player and pull paperbacks from shelves. So, adios antique white walls, hello color. We just need to find time to paint it.

Getting new stuff is fun. Especially BIG new stuff.

I am so coveting your California king.
