Why fire pits are a necessity...
The best new addition to our back yard: a fire pit!! As I mentioned in my bucket list, a huge focus of mine this summer has been getting the backyard in tip top shape and last week we FINALLY completed our outdoor fire pit! It looks awesome and I can’t get enough of it. The best part about having a fire pit is that in New England, there is almost always a chill in the evening. It’s also not just for summer---I plan on using this fire pit until there is snow in the forecast! We surrounded our fire pit with comfy outdoor weather-proof furniture (but I'm not so sure that ours is dog proof...our dogs are starting to think that this is their new private living room!). I went back and forth between a round fire pit and a square fire pit...and as you can see I decided on round. I was worried I might regret it but it turned out to work perfectly...we picked round because it just worked better with the layout of the yard but I like the circle because it feels more like a real camp fire. Makes me miss my summer camp days!
