Luxurious.

Sateen sheets. Scented bubble baths. Facials. Sleeping in. A new BMW. The South of France. Bed and Breakfasts. Massage. Long-distance phone calls to old friends. Champagne in first class. Chocolate and strawberries.

All are luxurious.


But I think nothing can be as luscious as a sweetly-scented baby falling asleep in your arms. The way her eyes drift shut. Her bowed lips pursing in a dream. The body growing heavy and limbs hanging limp.


Yes, this is the deepest of all pleasures.


Sweet newborn Evie.
