the magic of new bed night.

That's what we call the night when the sheets have had their freshest of baths (I wash our white sheets with a cup of bleach and a cup of vinegar and nothing else. As per Laurie's recommendation and so far, so good.). New bed night. Because it just feels that way, all brand new. Our bed has been referred to as a spa, I kid you not (and that was prior to the white sheets, imagine it now Steph!!). We have several tricks up our sleeves including but not limited too...
1//Lavender Essential Oil. I figure this is the top most important item in new bed night. I put a drop or two on each pillow before putting the pillowcase back on. I also have a lavender spray that I use all over all the sheets before putting the duvet on (I also spray down each kid's bed as well on their new bed night). 2//See also our new diffuser, who's sole purpose is diffusing lavender for our breathing and sleeping pleasure. 3//These brand spanking new white sheets Matt got me for my birthday that just add a whole new level to our new bed night game. 4//A sound machine. Ours is ancient, as in over ten years old, but here is a similar one. We cannot and do not sleep without it. Rainforest baby, ftw. Also we never turn our ceiling fan off. Something about moving air just helps with everything, we have found. 5//These! I've been on a kick lately about neutralizing the colors in our home. Mentally anyways, I haven't jumped the gun and started painting anything. Yet. These just fit the bill though for our room! I may just never leave. Ever.

What about you? Have any great tips to make your bed like the best place to be, ever?
