"This one's got a bigger fire bowl"
"Hm, but this one's less expensive"
"Ooh! Or this one would double as a coffee table"
My husband and I went back and forth today trying to find a fire pit for our backyard. We've been wanting one since last spring but could never find one we liked or that we felt was worth the cost. But today, standing in the aisle at Lowes, we were bound and determined to leave with one.
We did finally find one we love and felt good about. It's sitting on our patio ready to go and I can't wait! I imagine hubby and I sitting around the fire pit together talking over our days and weeks. The dogs curled up or running around at our feet. I imagine our families visiting us and all of us gathered around soaking in the moments that go too fast with the people we see too little. I imagine dinners and happy hours and maybe a roasted marshmallow or two as the sun dips below the clouds making the fire a welcomed warmth in cool air.
This month I am linking up with "Two Writing Teachers" for a slice of life, daily writing challenge.
