Week-end Simple: Don't make your bed
There's something luxurious and sensual--even sexy--about an unmade bed. Soft percale and a light cotton blanket, relaxed, unfussy, casual, inviting.
An unmade bed reminds me of childhood summers at the beach when we would get out of bed early in the morning and head down to the ocean to make the most of the day.
School begins soon, and I will go back to rising at 5:30 and my early morning routines. But for the next few weeks I will continue to enjoy my summer and the pleasure of an unmade bed.
