Hubby had a wonderful surprise in store for my birthday this year!
A few weeks ago I was talking to him about my love of wood stoves. Going on and on about how I would love to have a real one, to which he rolled his eyes.
Discouraged, I happened to mention that Menard's sells electric wood stoves and how I thought it might give me the feel of a real one with out so much of the cost - - again there was eye rolling!
I figured at that point it was something I would have to purchase on my own.
Along came my birthday. Hubby wrangled the kids into the car for a secret shopping trip while I baked a cake.
A few hours later they arrived back home chasing me off into my bedroom to await the grand reveal.
When I was finally allow to come take a look I can't tell you how shocked I was to find this sitting in the middle of the living room...
I'm pretty sure there was squealing . . . .
perhaps even a little jumping . . . .
I know for a fact there were many hugs!
For now I've placed my beloved electric wood stove in an awkward corner between the hutch and the desk. Normally a chair sits in this space, but I've found it's the perfect placement for my wood stove I can see the flickering flames in great comfort from my sofa as I lay and read a book each night on my Kindle with the lights off.
Just me, my kindle and a wood stove - - - Modern Day Mommy Time!
