Finally here!! My favorite time of year. I love when the temps turn a little cooler. This has been one hot summer!!
When it turns cooler we all seem to come out of the house a whole lot more. There's more going on walks and exploring in the woods. We have picnics and play football, volleyball and croquet in our yard. And also, one of my favorites, we have bonfires!!
I love having s'mores and roasting marshmallows. Anyone else like to burn theirs until it's onfire? I love it!! My husband likes his more slow roasted and slightly browned. Not me. I've eaten three by the time he's just started with his first!
But, my favorite part about having a bonfire is....
...just taking a moment to slow down and be together. There is something so soothing and relaxing about sitting around a fire talking, singing, and just be-ing.
Life can get too busy if we let it. A week can go by and feel like we just blinked. We can be productive and profitable with our time. But, too often, I focus on being so productive that I forget to just stop and savor the moments. Not this Fall. I plan to have several more bonfires and just sit and be with my family. Marshmallows are optional, but most likely will play in to the equation! ;o)
I usually create a Fall Bucket List and love doing that. Want to know what's on my list this year? Just this. Slowing down and enjoying front yard bonfires, volleyball matches, and lots of s'mores. God is so good to us, I want to make sure and enjoy each blessing this fall!
