It was a hot July around here to be pregnant. My few pleasures involved eating and sleeping, and towards the end not even those were making me happy. I had heard how amazing linen sheets are to sleep on and in a moment of weakness I ordered an expensive set of them online. (I have never spent this much money on sheets and felt a little ill after I hit the confirm button). But when the sheets arrived and we spent the first night sleeping on them, I felt much better. (OK, technically I still felt ill and had to wake up to pee every hour, but the time spent actually sleeping was kind of amazing). The sheets are huge- they generously touch the floor on both sides of the bed. The color is soft and calming- they even look good when I am too lazy to make the bed. Linen lasts for years and just gets softer with age. And they are absolutely lovely to sleep on. The sheets are a heavier weight than cotton, but light and cool in hot weather. Now that the season is changing the sheets feel warm and comfortable at night. I had planned to switch back to our normal cotton sheets when Dare was born. She is in our bed and babies can be quite messy creatures, but I could not bring myself to switch back to cotton sheets. I hid all of the cotton sheets upstairs. I am in love and I cannot go back. The baby seems pretty happy with them as well.
