Heat ‘n Eller — Sunday Snapshot

When we were building our house, we knew we wanted a fireplace. We live in Minnesota; it’s kind of a no brainer. Our builder uses a product called a “heat-n-glo,” and it’s a gas fireplace that turns on with the flip of a switch.

We’ve been using it quite a bit lately, as it’s turned chilly outside, but it’s not yet cold enough to turn on the heat.

I guess I never thought about it beforehand, but it’s been amazing to me to see how much the dogs love the fireplace. If it’s on, someone is laying right in front of it.

Usually this guy:



38/52: Someone loves to warm himself by the fire

Aaron’s a little worried he’s gonna cook himself, but come on, he’s not that dumb. That cute, but not that dumb.

Hope you’re having a warm, cozy Sunday as well.

    We have a gas fireplace, after having a wood burning one, and I so want to go back. It was not feasible when we built our home, and I guess if I had to use it all the time, the convenience of gas would be nice. But, there is no replacing the smell, sound and feel of a wood burning fire. Those dogs are too cute in your photos.

    Oh, we have a gas fireplace that starts with a switch in our Chicago house and I just love it and know we’ll miss it in AR this winter. Milly also loves to warm herself by it. It’s adorable and homey.

    Oh my. What a face. Just makes me want to curl up and read a book and, well, turn my fireplace back on.
