I don’t know about where you are, but here in Chicago IT IS COLD. Right now I am looking out the window at a fresh blanket of snow covering the ground and even more flakes falling from the sky. All I can think about are things that make me warm – hot cocoa, fuzzy slippers, comfy sweaters, and the warm glow of a fire.
There is something so mesmerizing about fire – watching flames dance around as they curl around the logs, listening to the crackling of the wood … the smoky scent that fills the air, the warmth radiating from the hearth … ahhhhh.
