Sleeping together

Gliding into a cool bed on a cold evening, sliding my feet between his thighs to keep warm. My hand easing into his, to absorb the warmth. It is the same ritual almost every night. We have been doing it for years. We face each other, I'm scrunched up into a foetal position to keep warm, he is in the typical spooning position, and when we start falling asleep we shift, once. I stretch out onto my tummy, and he stretches out onto his side facing away from me. His feet come looking for mine and we sleep undisturbed with our ankles and calves interlocked until we dream. From there the memories fade, but we keep close contact for most of the night until early morning. I need my space in the morning and he doesn't usually disturb me. He respects my mornings.

That is too bad. I know the feeling though, when it's summer here 35-40 degrees with a humidity factor of 100% yeah.... wouldn't want to snuggle with that either.

I guess you'll just have to dream about it.

Sounds absolutely wonderful! I'm in a different situation, since I'm very happy to have negociated myself out of the married bedroom and into my own space at night. That doesn't mean I hate my husband (I do love morning sex and sneak into bed with him in the mornings sometimes), and it certainly doesn't mean I wouldn't love to glide down and spoon up in the evenings... with someone... lol

It's one of the few times that I can actually snuggle with bf. I do love it. I don't talk enough about the positive sides of bf. I should write a post about his cooking lol.

I love the ankle interlock position except that my ankles are too bony or something because we can't get them to fit together right for very long.

For us she snuggles on my chest for a few minutes, then she rolls over and I spoon her, and then we give one more good night kiss and roll to our separate sides of the bed. It's almost a ritual now.

Thanks for sharing your routine, it's kind of sexy to know. And as for mornings? I'm out of bed an hour before she wakes up so we don't have any problems there.

Yeah bf gets up at least a couple hours before I do, and unless there's a snow storm, like there was this morning, he doesn't wake me.
