Last night I came home after a Bible Study with a friend and arrived with take out dinner in hand. As I walked up to my front door, I noticed that the lights inside the house were completely out.... did the electricity go out? Worried that I might trip with food in hand, plus my hands were full with another bag in the car to be grabbed, I hollered out for my man to lend a hand. He met me at the door, smile on his face, and took the bags from my hands. Right before I asked, "is the power out" I noticed a flickering of light back into the farthest part of my home... "is that a fire?"
I lean into the house and see directly to the back where the outside porch/deck is lit up with our burning firepit, beautiful flames rising over the wood within its gate. "What's this?"
What awaited me was a wonderful evening!
My hubby had prepared the set up for a fireside dinner... all I had to do was walk in with the food! We walked out onto the back porch/deck and the firepit was lit and ready to provide me warmth in the cool evening. TV trays and chairs were set and waiting, and a blanket was laid on top of the trays to gain the heat from the firepit. Once I sat down, my man covered me with the now warmed by the fire blanket, served me some homemade delicious hot chocolate, and set out the food for us to eat and enjoy. And to top it off, Christmas music played out of the speakers for the perfect background music.
It was a
good GREAT night. I couldn't have asked for a better night - just me, my man, and our two furbabies enjoying the cold weather outside by a fire. Picturesque!
Thank you honey, I am a very lucky and blessed woman! It was a great surprise last night.
