New House: Wood Burning Fireplace

One of the features we've been excited about, but haven't been able to utilize until recently, is the wood burning fireplace! In our last house we had two fireplaces, but they were coal burning and had been capped off years ago. So while pretty, they weren't functional.

This house has a painted wood paneled room with a large hearth and built-in's galore! It's pretty much my dream cozy family room. It still needs some work and tile is definitely not my first choice for a family room, but we'll get there over time.

As the weather has finally started to cool off we've been enjoying the fireplace nearly every night. (If you are local and need a firewood man, let me know, we have a good one!)

Not a a fire pic, but look at this cuteness!

If you are wondering about the garland, it's our November thankful garland. For the last few years we've written down one thing we are thankful for throughout the whole month. This year we are hanging our thankful leaves over the mantle, because why not? Is it high style? No. But it's a sweet reminder of all that we have as we gather together as a family. 

I'm looking forward to decorating for Christmas next week! (Seriously, can you believe it?!)
