Here are some recent pictures from our first fire in our fireplace.
We've had the foreplace for over 3 years, ever since we moved in. But we've just recently had the gas line taken out...so I thought "duh!" we can have a real fire!!
We are thrilled and very excited.
Eating freshly made Vanilla Pudding, knitting around the fire....ahhhhh.....
