So, yeah, there is no camping in my life. Sleeping on the hard ground, battling bugs, no facilities. Not for me.
But I do enjoy nature. And I love a good campfire. That is about the only thing that I would be able to get behind with the whole camping thing.
|My new fire pit....Isn't she a beauty?!|
This spring, in anticipation of my son's graduation party in my backyard, I decided that we needed to retire the old rusty fire pit and upgrade. So I made my largest Amazon purchase ever and bought a beautiful extruded aluminum fire pit table. I also purchased 25# of glowing golden fire pit glass (made with real gold!) for an exceptionally beautiful look. Of course, I haven't used it as much as I would like (often the night I want to use it, I will find my son out there with his friends), but this fall I am hoping to really fire it up (he will be leaving for college soon so it will be all mine!). Oh, and did I mention it is propane powered? Just flip a switch and you are ready to go! (See...even with a fire pit I am not so "camp-y"!).

So for August, as the summer winds down and the stars are shining, our theme is campfires. The wood, the fire, the colors, the s'mores....whatever you think of as evoking this summertime tradition.
