31 Days of Autumn Inspiration: Build a Fire

We tend to have firy hot summers and warm, warm, warm falls.  So when it's cool enough to build a fire in the backyard, we soak it in.  This past weekend, we had the perfect opportunity to do just that.

My husband built a fire while I finished cleaning up dinner.  The kids rounded up graham crackers, marshmallows, and chocolate.  And we all met outside.

At the end of a long day, it was nice to slow down and enjoy the evening together.  There's something about lingering around a fire that makes time slow down, conversation easy, and family moments sweeter.

So if you can, take the time this week to build a fire and soak in a savory evening.  Linger.  Breathe the cool fall air.  And slow down.
