Last night we decided to take advantage of the cooler weather and light up the fire pit in our courtyard. Nothing like some graham crackers, marshmallows and dark chocolate all melted together to take the edge off of the chill in the air. Oh, and of course a hot steaming mug of hot chocolate.
We invited our neighbors over to join us and our guests in the finger licking goodness of roasted marshmallows and telling stories by the fire under the stars. It was much like camping, only better. You can't beat having the feel of the outdoors with the convenience of being able to walk a few steps to get indoors to snuggle into some flannel sheets and brush your teeth in a real bathroom without a woodsy spider staring you down.
Aaah ... the convenience of being able to have backyard smores.
A perfect evening kick-off to our downtown Mount Dora Art Festival.
