This past December, we had a fireplace in our house for the first time ever.
I’ve been wanting to get a fireplace for a long time, but we’ve never had one in a house that we have lived in before. I remember back when I was a kid growing up in the northern part of the country. My grandparents used to have a world burning fireplace that they would start using at the beginning of the holidays and then they would use it all winter long. The wood burning fireplace didn’t give off all that much heat, but it sure did make my grandparents’ house feel nice and cozy during the holiday season. Ever since then, I always wanted to have my very own wood burning fireplace. I always thought that it would be a nice memory for our kids to have and I really wanted one myself! When I told my husband what I was thinking, he was not really all that excited about it at first. But then the more we talked about it, the more he started to think that it wouldn’t be that bad of an idea to get a new wood burning fireplace installed at our house. He went and talked to our local HVAC company to see how much it would cost to have a new fireplace installed at our house. I guess it turned out to be much less expensive than we originally thought that it was going to be. He decided to surprise me with it as a Christmas gift and I have to say that I loved it more than any other gift that I’ve ever received! Having a fireplace for the first time ever was just wonderful and now I can’t wait for next year.
