Brrrr....welcome autumn

This weekend fall was in full force here in Portland. All the trees may not be in their autumnal color scheme, but there is no doubt that these gusty, rainy days means summer is over. I love summer, so I'm not one to quickly embrace the season's end, but I am a fan of sweaters, boots, hot cocoa, so I may need to move on. As you may know from past posts, there's few beach houses that I don't fall hard for - so instead of completely moving inside, I'm easing the transition by sharing some fabulous outdoor fireplaces and fire pits to fend off that evening chill.
