Fireplace Newbie

So today we had our fireplace cleaned and inspected. Since we just moved here in September we had no idea what we were getting ourselves into. My husband and in laws have never had a fireplace, and at both my mom and dad's homes we had them but I was never in charge of using them. I didn't even know how to open it up, let alone light it! Some girl scout I was!! I looked up a tutorial online and found it very helpful and wanted to pass it on to any other foolish fireplace femme out there that may be reading this:
21 Days
I am getting ready to begin my endeavor with the book 21 Days to Loving Your Husband on Purpose and with a Plan. I cannot disclose the exact day because my husband is not supposed to know about it (he does know about the book and my friend Jen who I am doing it with, but not when I am beginning or what the challenges are). Since he pops in here occasionally all I will say is I am excited and I think that our relationship will get much stronger through this.
