Something in the fall air makes me long for the sharp smell of burning wood and the sweet taste of a perfectly roasted marshmallow (golden brown and melty, please).
Or sitting here with my dearest friends while we solve the world's problems and enjoy a slightly charred hot dog. Would you be allowed to roast a hot dog in something this beautiful? Well, it's my fantasy, so yes!
On a slightly more realistic note, I could be perfectly happy with a beautiful fire pit like this one. Adirondack chair and a glass of red, optional.
So, what about you? Do you have a bit of the country girl in you? Do you like to burn stuff too? How about a little more inspiration...
