Simple Pleasures: Fire Pits & S’Mores


It’s Fall & we finally have a backyard to hang out in!! A couple of nights ago we decided to break out the fire-pit (given to us by our friends, Amy & Greg) and do S’Mores.

It was so beautiful to just sit out in the brisk night with sweats on & to warm our bare feet near the fire…

It was just Dave & Christian (& of course Ashby!) and me, but we had enough s’mores for 6+ people.

And of course Christian helped find the perfect sticks…

…To get those marshmallows cooked to perfection. (image below from flicker) I have to admit, I was definitely out of practice & lit my first one on fire– oops! I like them golden brown slow-cooked….Christian had the best time with Daddy:

S’Mores are so good I can’t even handle it!!! (image from here) This is only the second time Dave’s EVER had them!!!
After burning the first one to smitherines, I learned to concentrate a bit more…

While I’m so happy with my perfect little fire pit, I wouldn’t mind one of these built-in ones below… (image from and am now working up plans & a yard location in my mind for the future. (don’t worry, WAY future!)

Love this one too from Country Living. The big boulders for sitting are so fun:

How fun does this look?!! )(below CL)

Mmmm mmm… some pretty roasting marshmallows… (CL)
And of course House Beautiful does a fire pit in style, below. I’d love to have this many adirondacks for a big party:

If you don’t have a fire pit (or the time to make one) I found a few places with pretty ones. The artisan John Tunger makes beautiful ones:

Front Gate of course has some nice ones but they’re on the pricier side and if I were going to SPEND on a fire pit (some are in the thousands… granite, marble, etc.) I’d rather have one built…


I think this one is beautiful from Smith + Hawken:

Target carries a large variety. Check out this pagoda fire pit:

This one is beautiful:

Target also carries Smith + Hawken. Love the copper bowls:This one is around $100:
I found this one on Washington Spaces but Target carries it:
Here’s a beauty from Design Within Reach for $350: (image from kelly So if you need something to do on a cool Fall night….
… There’s always this:

And don’t forget the key ingredients!!!

Hope you get to enjoy this simple pleasure!!!



also- thanks so much for all the kind words/ encouragement about my house!! (previous post) You don’t know how much it means to me!!!
