Jun 15, 2016

I’d argue that few things are more perfect than spending an evening in your yard with friends, good food, and a fire pit to keep you cozy.

Don’t get me wrong, I love going to the beach, swimming in pools, and enjoying the sun, but there’s something pretty magical about a roaring fire and s’mores.
