I love my fireplace. When Vince and I were first married, I didn’t even know that people still had fireplaces in their houses. I thought that it was just an old fashioned thing. Now that I realize it’s a common thing for people to have fireplaces, I feel really silly. When Vince and I were looking for our first home, I really wanted to find a house with a fireplace even if it was just for decoration. Thankfully, the house that both of us fell in love with had a fireplace. Although it’s quite a bit of work to chop wood for the fireplace, it’s so worth it. I love the smell that fills my house when the fireplace is going. It makes our house feel so cozy, and I can’t imagine our house without a fireplace. Unfortunately, our fireplace was really old, and it was falling apart. The bricks on the outside would fall without warning which was quite dangerous, so we decided to buy a new one. It wasn’t easy replacing such a beautiful, old fireplace like the one we had. It took almost four months of looking for me to find a fireplace that I liked. Once the new one was in, I was really happy with the choice. Now I can use the fireplace all the time, and I don’t have to worry about my little ones getting hit by one of the falling bricks. My husband is really happy too because our new fireplace is electric, so he doesn’t have to take the time to chop anymore wood!
