    I've just been told everyone's going camping

    and they want to stay at mine. Haha, no. I love camping I guess, but I'd wanna do it somewhere not at a house because then you can make camp fires and be loud if you want... :/ Hmmmm. Our last camp out was pretty fun though...

    with my friends and family being goofy

    and messing around start the fire, and call up the peps, set up the tents find the right radio station, meet up at the front gates, sing hard to love over the radio. better over the winter. the smell of wood buring and watching the snow melt. I have done this so many times...

    For some reason it just makes me feel loved by

    nature in the most calming way.

    When I was little, I used to spend time with

    with my grandfather on his farm. Before bedtime, we were sitting around a fire, sipping on good old hot milk with cinnamon, while he was telling me stories from his eventful life. Why did those days ever have to go?

    The air has to be at

    that perfect cool temp. And, there always needs to be a guitar. I love soft acoustic music by a campfire.

    There is something mesmerizing about watching

    fire. Roasting hot dogs and marshmallows, making Smores never gets old. Almost everything tastes good, when you are camping. BSing seems funner when you are sitting around the campfire.

    Camping is extremely fun,

    I love to camp and when you get a good nice fire going you can get everyone to sit around the fire and tell stories and get to know each other. I love it.

    I had a good experience fishing today.

    (Real fish, just in case there is confusion using general terms). We went to a mountain creek early in the morning. 5 AM We got 5 trouts and let them back to the H20. Perfect morning,perfect day and perfect company. I hope your day was good too.

    I absolutely love the warmth

    that bounces from the fire as the sun sets in the crisp cool air. Sitting around the fire with friends and of course, s'mores. Haha Nothing like the cool air and the warmth of a camp fire.

    Ever since I was a young girl I loved sitting

    next to a campfire. We would roast hot dogs and tell scary stories. Later in life we would just relax and chat and enjoy the great outdoors. There is something romantic about campfires, but that's another story.

    Especially when it is cold outside

    and the warmth of the fire draws us in, gets rid of the chill, warms us up, with a few good friends, some hotdogs and s'mores :)

    I've always dreamt of sitting by the fire,

    singing my guts out, the ambiance of a gentle flame, the embers dancing the air before they fall the the Earth, dead, the hideous laughter, the jovial tears of joviality, a lake in the distance, the waves crashing secretly, far away and discreetly, the wind through the leaves...

    I love the way she snuggles up against me.

    She keeps me warm at night and is always there for me. She loves me unconditionally. I love my cat. ;) (Okay so not a post about campfires, but it could have been.)

    A camp fire is warm and intimate.

    You can hide in the flickering shadows listening to the cracking twigs in easy silence, speaking only as the words slowly take form in your relaxed unhurried mind.
