Um, this is pretty much my favorite photo this week. I love the linens, and how badly do I want to sleep on a floating dock? Love...

I agree with you, Gina. It would be a great place to read a book, on a lazy afternoon.

Di, that is for sure. There are times when a bed does feel like heaven.

CC, I do too, love that bedding. It is from Anthropologie, my favorite store. I just can never afford to buy anything there. I usually go there and get ideas, come home and make it. Even if I could afford it, I wouldn't pay those prices for material things, I'd rather give it to charity. But they have such beautiful things.

SB, doesn't it look like a healing place? It looks like a place one could have a great conversation with God.

Thanks everyone for your visit; it's nice to read your thoughts.

No, it isn't heaven. And happiness is overrated. Content. Small pleasures. Good moments. That's what we should call it.

ah, so true
everything is meaningless, except love and the relationships with one another and the creator

If this were Heaven, how disappointing that would be! Sometimes I look at the beauty of this world and wonder in amazement at what Heaven must be like.

That photo is soooo dreamy!

how dreamy is this!

Peter said...

Even if it's not heaven, the bed certainly looks inviting! Is this at least a reasonable wish?

Oh wow. This is a good quote. And that image is so great!

I think I should adopt this saying. It might keep me from having "expectations" that are totally unrealistic.
