This summer we invested in a fire pit. Yes, I said fire pit. We are city folk over here. Born and raised. Quite frankly, we're darn proud of it. Yes, I know the beauty of the country side, the open fields, the snow capped mountains, the rippling lakes, and the sandy beaches. God's beauty is all around us.
We just like to call our appreciation VACATION.
Yep, that is indeed what vacations are for. But, when living out this daily thing called life, I prefer the conveniences of the city. Don't get me wrong, I often find myself complaining about Walmart and Quik Trip being stationed on every street corner. However, I do venture in to those places and even jump for joy when I have a sick kid in the middle of the night and we are all out of Tylenol. I can just hop in the car for a quick drive. A 5 minute trip can solve most of my problems and I wouldn't have it any other way.
BUT, an evening in our backyard sitting around the fire pit with my family is so relaxing. Add some marshmallows and chocolate, and I am in heaven...
Plus, if we run out of marshmallows, I can be back in 5 minutes with a fresh bag. Now, THAT makes me smile!
