It's an autumn night. The sun goes down and a blanket of cool air settles over South Florida. The Harvest Moon looms larger than life and we are given a respite from the day's humidity. For our family, it is time to enjoy the backyard patio and build a campfire in the firepit.
I love to watch the sparks as they float into the air and disappear into the evening sky. The glow of the fire on the faces of my family warms my heart. The smell of the wood burning brings back memories of clambakes in Rhode Island. The crackle of the fire, the laughter, and the cheerful chatter reminds me of summer camp. I reminisce and stare into the fire. My soul is at peace.
I chose the photo from mama-pan for both the warm glow and the perfect words that accompanied it. "I thought about the too-late bedtime and crabby moods tomorrow. Then I thought of s'mores, guitars, late night swimming, leaning against each other by the fireside. Worth it."
No matter how warm it is outside, there is something about a campfire that draws people in. Do you celebrate the warmth and romance of an outdoor fire with your own families? Do your childhood memories include the crackle and pop of embers?
Until next week. Have a wonderful Halloween and stay sweet.
