A Quiet Day of Play

I love my bedroom, not because is decorated perfectly, or painted the perfect, calming color. On the contrary, I'm sure a lot could be done with it; but I love it all the same. It's on the second floor with a south facing window and a west facing window so on a Summer day the breeze blows perfectly through this room.

It is, by far, the best room in the house - the coolest, most airy room we have.


So when the laundry is all tucked away and the bed is made; we LOVE to plant our selves down on the bed, shutters wide open and play, cuddle, laugh, talk, tickle, rest, read, or just dream.

At night we love to keep the west facing window open, allowing the ocean breeze to dance at our window seal. Listening to the seagulls and the rhythmic sound of the fog horn takes me back to my honeymoon in Jamaica  when we slept to the sound and smell of the ocean and delighted in the cool breeze that tucked us in each night.


That's where you could find Harrison and I yesterday, we were tired, it was a long week; so we hung out on my bed and played - in the cool breeze and soft light of my favorite room of our house.



 The first shot is my Best Shot this week. I just love how relaxed {and engrossed} he is, playing with his Bionicles handed down from his beloved Big Brother.


Head to Mother May I for more Best Shot Monday.

A room like that is heaven.... especially being your bedroom. And the fact that you both enjoy being there is wonderful. You described it so well, that if I closed my eyes I can feel the breeze too. You have portrayed a wonderful moment!

You can totally feel the relaxed mood in these photos. On the weekends when Francesco fights taking a nap I allow him to play quietly on our bed while I read and it's one of my favorite times of the day.

Light and breezy sounds perfect to me. (Especially given that it's an ocean breeze! Yes, jealous much.) And these light, laid-back photos look just like the relaxed afternoon you described.
