It has been awhile since this picture was taken, which tells me , husband extraordinaire and I need some time for us, and just us. Many couples have regular date nights, a night on the town or a special weekend away.
One of the most relaxing things for my husband and I do is to share a beer around our fire pit. After the girls go to bed, on clear, cool nights, we head outside in our backyard, sit in our Adirondack chairs, and start a fire. There is something so restful about gazing into the flames.
We have our best conversations around that fire pit. We talked about everything and nothing at all. We reminisce about when we first met. We remember times long ago, of our parents, of our respective childhoods. We talk of the future: plans, and dreams of our children and for ourselves. Looking at this picture, has given me an idea. As soon as “the great flood” ends in our part of the country, and the firewood dries, I think we will have to meet by the fire again.
