The Fireplace…

So Floridians don’t have much use for the traditional fireplace. The closest we tend to get is outdoor fire pits that we enjoy when the weather gets nippy outside. This morning, I woke up to the first hint of autumn in Florida, and it got me thinking about my younger days living up north.

There was nothing nicer than Dad building a fire on a cold, snowy day. It wasn’t just the warmth that made the fireplace so lovely. Remembering the smell of burning wood and the popping sound of the fire just makes me feel cozy, even today.

Close your eyes and think about Sunday football and crackling embers. Ahhh, memories…


Stay groovy…
