Our First One of the Season

What is it about bonfires that are just so relaxing and welcoming?

Jay and I always get so excited once “bonfire season” starts up here in New York. We realized yesterday afternoon that last night would be the perfect night for our first one of the season, so we invited a few friends over to help us burn some of the massive amounts of wood that we have.

We currently have a TON of wood from some trees that we recently cut down from the side of our house…but we also had this pallet that I know Jay has just been itching to burn.

Perhaps because he thought it’d be cool to walk over?

Ohh goodness. I wonder about those boys sometimes.

Of course, you can’t have a bonfire without s’mores, right?

I thoroughly enjoyed a couple of these last night while sitting by the fire and boy were they good. Especially since we didn’t use just ANY plain ‘ol chocolate…

Now that’s what I’m talkin’ about.

I’l tell ya…there’s nothin’ like sitting by the fire with good friends and s’mores. Smile

We didn’t end up getting to bed until almost 1am last night, so I opted to sleep in a bit this morning. I’m still desperately trying to recover from my lack of sleep from traveling this past week, and I still don’t even feel fully recovered. Hopefully an early bedtime will be in the cards this evening…

I already know that today is going to be filled with some delicious food, as Jay and I will be traveling to both of our parents’ houses for Mother’s Day, so I decided to keep breakfast light and refreshing.

A yummy way to start the day, indeed!

Before signing off for this morning, I want to make sure to wish all of the moms out there a very wonderful, special, Happy Mother’s Day. Especially this amazing lady

You da bomb, Mom. Happy Mother’s Day! Smile

    Sounds like a wonderful evening! We have a fire in our firepit almost every weekend! It would be nightly but my sweet hubs works out of town most the time M-Th. I love the idea of using “good” chocolate for Smores. I love me some Ghirardelli!!
