“Chop your own wood and it will warm you twice.” -Henry Ford

One cold evening, we loaded up a bag of kindling and enough logs to last a couple hours. The secret to starting a cozy and strong fire? Pine cones dipped in paraffin. In addition to being a great fire starter, they also make great presents.

With no shortage of firewood,  we enjoyed watching the fire with family and friends.
