It’s still pretty hot here in Southwest Florida. It’s hard for us to think about sitting around a fire right now. However, cooler days are coming (we hope!).

There’s something about the ambiance of a fire that encourages conversation and helps folks enjoy the company of each other, their families and friends. It encourages the gathering of people and the creation of great memories.

For our New Year’s celebration this year we decided not to go to any parties but just to sit in our back yard on our canal, sip on some New Year cocktails, share some sparklers with our daughter and enjoy the incoming 2012. In the center of our New Year’s Celebration was the firepit we had received as a Christmas present. Proof that fire attracts people. It was one of the best New Year Eve’s we’ve had in a long time.

My cousin used to live on a large piece of property. We’d spend months collection pallets and loose wood in anticipation of the huge fire he would build so that we could have a great time with a large group of people. Proof that fire attracts people.

We frequent Fort Wilderness where on a nightly basis they have Chip and Dale’s Marshmallow roast. Proof that fire attracts people.

A firepit, fire place and the such creates a sense of peace, relaxation, fun and spirit. If you have the budget then a real live outdoor fire place is a great investment. If you have a smaller budget you can invest minimally in a fire pit from one of the big box stores. It’s a great addition to your outdoor living area.
