After a relaxing fun filled weekend at the cottage, I have grown to love fire pits. Spending the cooled down night sitting around a bon fire watching the moon dip lower into the horizon with super stary skies and a drink in hand. Sitting in a tank top and a pair of shorts, the heat the fire generates is so soothing on my skin. I was so close to the fire, trying to absorb as much of the raw heat as possible - that if I had an hair on my legs, it probably would have burnt off.
Now, I am going to mention purchasing a fire pit to my parents so we can bon fire EVERY night in the convenience of our very own home, and hope they consider it.
The only down side of outside fires is that the smell of burning wood absorbs into your clothes, skin and especially your hair. A shower is mandatory after any fire.
I literally sat outside, until each and every piece of wood was burnt to glowing balls of coal and eventually flaked into ashes.
