This past Saturday, we decided to brave the Artic Blast and spend an evening touring the Bellevue Botanical Garden for their Garden d’Lights event featuring over half-a-million lights.

We had a festive evening and the experience was worth wearing the extra layers of clothes.  We marveled at how the artists were able to make the landscapes and animals come alive with lights.  And we sheepishly compared their work to the white lights that we strung all along the roof of our house.  Next year, we’ll endeavor to do something more creative.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to everyone!
