an evening bonfire.

A few weeks ago husband and I made a fire in our backyard and just sat out there and talked the evening away. It really was quite perfect. I don't know what it is about sitting in front of a fire, but it's very relaxing and mesmerizing to me.

While enjoying our cozy fire, we realized that this was the first time that Max had ever been around open flames...we realized this at just the right moment too, because he got a little too close for comfort.

We spent the evening talking about our day, our future together, and our silly dog. The only thing missing from this perfect evening was marshmallows. Next time, there will be marshmallows. :)


In other news, my day off yesterday was quite a success! Thanks to those of you who shared via the comments here, Twitter, and Facebook your ways of creating balance in your lives when it comes to work and personal life.

I spent yesterday catching up on Glee, reading my favorite blogs, baking Jumbo Coffee-Cake muffins, doing some laundry, and going to see Robin Hood in the theater with husband. It was a great, much needed break...and I'm so glad I did it!

With love,
