we were gifted a brand spankin' new mattress for christmas and only just got around to having it delivered TODAY. part of the delay was in deciding on a new bed frame and that took so long because we have itchy feet to move somewhere soon. squishy sleeps and sore backs stopped making sense however. when in doubt of how long you will be sticking around for, settle on the cheapest bed at IKEA and be merry. i'm SO happy with our new little set up. feels like cabin living; love it.
