Finally, after years of waiting, I recognize the two of us are finally going to be able to get the fireplace that I’ve consistently wanted.
I have been dreaming about getting a fireplace for a long time now, really ever since I moved out of our parents’ condo almost 5 years ago. We never had a fireplace when I was growing up, however I consistently wanted one. I had a associate in private school who had a gorgeous fireplace at his condo with a mantel and a hearth made of riverstone. I remember resting by the fireplace in the Winter time and reading whenever I would stay the night over at our friend’s house. I remember thinking about how much I wished I had a cozy fireplace like hers in our own house, but the condo that I grew up in just wasn’t equipped with a fireplace or with space to put one. I never stopped wanting one, though! Now, I’m married and our partner and I have been talking for the past couple of years about putting in a fireplace in our house. We have plenty of room for a fireplace now, but for some reason the builders didn’t include one when they first built the house. I recognize every single condo that’s built these afternoons should be equipped with a fireplace in it. We talked to our local Heating as well as Air Conditioning corporation who also specializes in gas fireplaces and wood burning fireplace inserts. I recognize that once the two of us get it installed this year, the two of us are easily going to love it. I just can’t wait.
