This is also the time of year where I get to pretend I'm Martha Stewart even though I'm sooooooo not...like light years way...even though I try. Maybe just a tiny bit of her, like a sliver at least, maybe like her eyelash or pinky fingernail. I digress. Anyway, I get dorky, and my family just deals and pretends it's one of those quirky little things they love about me. Thank you for that, by the way, family! Here's a couple of pics of what I've started on:
I've laid out all of that to mention my absolute most favorite part about this time of year...the fire pit. I can't even type it without smiling. Sitting outside in chilly air, bundled up with a cozy blanket and big ol' glass of red wine under the clear night sky where it seems like you can see every star in our galaxy. I promise you, this is the best.cheap.date.EVER. Romantic? check. Cozy and comfortable? Check. Inexpensive? Check. The kids are entertained, the hubby likes it AND we get to burn stuff? CHECK!
So, guess what I'll be doing tonight? Ha! What about you?
