~New Day~

Our Fireplace
Jacksonville, Florida
January 8, 2017 1:00pm CST
Hey everyone! Last night we had our first fire in our new home in the fireplace and it was SO nice. =) I am so grateful and I feel so blessed having this home. I love it! The more we unpack and get settled the happier I am in our new place. I am going to be doing more unpacking today and Mylotting too of course. Right now I'm waiting for Julian to take a nap so I can get in the shower. He's at the age where he is curious and likes getting into things, so I just wait until he's sleeping to do certain things. I'm hoping to get to dollar tree today when my husband gets off work, we will see if he gets off in time to go. There are some household things and school things I need to get. I hope your all having a wonderful Sunday so far! =)

If I hadn't seen her photo of the fireplace, I would have thought the same thing, and been worried about her!

@Juliaacv It absolutely was worth the wait! =) I have never felt so good in a home before. Everything is new and updated, and it's bigger than our other place. It feels right here. =)

@LovingMyBabies they will one way or another it just depends on the one that's NOT wanting to LISTEN to what we're trying to help her with & being stupid when we're not into being stupid when your under our roof.

@LovingMyBabies My old house had a fireplace, but my current home does not have a fireplace. It is something I miss greatly.

Glad you are liking the place more the more you get unpacked and the fireplace sounds heavenly.I remember the days little ones liking to explore things when you are not watching them all the time just think the baby will be here before you know it. I hope you get your dollar tree trip today that is one of my favorite dollar stores. My day was a lazy day today and I enjoyed it.

@Tina30219 Thank you, we are! =) Yeah he loves getting into things now. Lol. Usually i put him in the playpen but he's teething and miserable so he wasn't a happy camper in there. Thanks, the dollar store is happening tomorrow instead since my husband got home late.

That is so wonderful you're enjoying your new home. Is it a wood fire or a gas fire? I miss our wood stove, but DH doesn't miss the work and I am glad we at least have a gas fire place here.

Looks nice. We also have one but without the protective screen. So until I get one, I won't risk ruining my new parquet.
