Photo 52: A Play on Light (Week 15: Holiday Edition)

This is our 15th week of our play on light blog circle and our third holiday edition. I know we have all been grieving following Friday's tragedy. I will be devastated for months I am sure. I can't stop looking at my girls and kissing them and realizing just how lucky I am to have them here and safe. It's hard for me not to think of all the families that won't have their little ones with them tonight. As President Obama said tonight, this tragedy has helped to remind us what matters. I do believe that is true, as hard as it is to find something good in something so tragic. When choosing a photo for this week, I kept coming back to this shot I took earlier in the week- before any of this madness happened. I look at this - our celebration of Hanukkah and Christmas (or Christmakuh) and these lights take on a new meaning now to me.  I am beyond thankful to have my two girls, my husband and our families to celebrate with this year. To Sandy Hook Elementary, you will forever be in our thoughts.

Now head on over to the lovely Kim Dupree's blog to see her gorgeous taking on holiday lights this week HERE. They will definitely put you in the holiday spirit.
