I've always been fascinated by a fireplace, the way it relaxes me, the glow, the warmth. The ritual of stacking the logs, one by one, that alone is soothing. Oh, and the crackling ... I could sit here for hours just listening to every little sound, gazing into the fire. My husband got me this cute puppy pillow so I don't have to sit on the floor. It's big enough for two. Comfy. Cozy. It doesn't matter if it's cold outside. I feel safe. I feel loved. I'm not alone.
