Our new bed frame was a much appreciated gift. With an actual footboard and headboard! The days of sleeping on a mattress on the floor are over (for good I hope). I did not expect to feel so excited about my mattress being propped up. I was fine with it on the floor, I suppose an outcome of my humble upbringing. But now that I have spent three whole nights in a "real" bed I can't imagine going back.
Mary on the other hand is easier to please. Any mattress in the sun will always be her favorite spot.
