Books & Lyrics

Our bedroom.  I want it to be cozy.  I want it to be warm.  I want it to smell good.

I don’t spend a ton of time in our bedroom, but when I do I want it to make me happy.  For that reason, I am always doing small things to improve our bedroom and make it suit us more.  Little things.  And not always things that are great decorating tips, but just stuff that makes us smile.

We have had a “memory wall” for a long time.  Basically just a wall of “clutter” that is special to us and reminds us of trips, events, and things that we love.  But now we have 2 new things that I love:

1.  Lyric wall.  Steve L-O-V-E-S music.  So I thought it would be fun if we left some paint in our room and wrote lyrics up on the wall whenever we want.  It’s been super fun for us.  And honestly, it’s pretty darn romantic. Also, we kind of feel like we are breaking the rules when we write on the wall, so it’s good for our rebellious side too.  When I came back from youth camp this summer, Steve had written this one while I was gone…

2.  I just started making our bed with our books and I really like it.  Clearly it’s not a big deal, but I really like it.  We both really love books and typically read as we are falling asleep at nights.  Now I make our bed with each of our current books on our pillows.  It gives our bed some character, and honestly probably reminds us to read even more.  It gives our bedroom a more cozy feel and it gives me incentive to make the bed.

What books are on the bed right now?

A Place on Earth by Wendell Berry on my side.  And Sign Talker by James Alexander Thom on Steve’s side.  Read them 🙂
