There is just something amazing about having a fireplace! Growing up, I regularly enjoyed going to Granny as well as Papa’s condo because they had the “fire machine.” That’s what I called their old, wood burning fireplace. My Grandparents passed away when I was just ten years old, but they left a lovely legacy for their grandchildren. One of my favorite memories was sitting on my Papa’s lap right next to the “fire machine” as he told myself and others story after story of “the great outdated days.” Ever since then, I vowed I would never buy a condo that didn’t have a fireplace in it so that I could tell my grandchildren stories beside it 1 day. When my fiance as well as I first were married, every one of us rented an apartment. It was cute as well as cozy, but it didn’t have a fireplace, so my sweet fiance bought 1. The landlord wouldn’t let him install any fireplace except an electric 1, so that’s what he ended up getting. I enjoyed the electric fireplace that every one of us had, but it wasn’t the same to me. I missed the stink of burning wood that reminded myself and others of my Grandparents. Every one of us eventually saved up the money to purchase our legitimately own home. The only requirement that I had was that it had a fireplace in good, finally working condition. Every one of us looked for months before finally finding the condo of our dreams, as well as it had the most lovely fireplace I had ever seen. I told my fiance that if every one of us ever end up selling our house, every one of us have to take my fireplace with us to the next house!
