Exactly one year and one month ago today….

… the ceiling over our bed COLLAPSED AND FELL DOWN,

here is the story...

For a number of reasons, many completely out of our control…we had plywood covering the big giant hole for 9 months!!!

BUT FINALLY…….

Who knew how much I could LOVE a clean white ceiling!

Sometimes,

I get SO distratced by the BIG changes…you know, Bathrooms, Kitchens, Plumbing, …Roofs…and , the um, the  NEW CEILING in my bedroom,  that I forget all the little “TWEAKS”…which truthfully, on a daily basis anyhow, thrill me more.

Such is the case with my NEW DUVET COVER…!!!!
