Day 143 of 365: Mood Lighting
No, we haven't forgotten to pay the electric...nor have we converted to being Amish. This has been a common sight on an evening over the past few weeks in the front room. Matt has these tea lights which were too big for the original holders he picked up at Ikea last year. We've all but used the four big candles up so we've now moved on to the tea lights.
It's funny now because it looks like some sort of sacrificial altar...but our intent is simply to dull the regular bright light in the room, yet not sit in total darkness.
I quite like the candles though. *cue Moody Blues -- Tuesday Afternoon*
After two and a half years in a long-distance relationship, I packed my life of 29 years into 21 boxes and moved to England to marry and be with my husband, Matt. Now I'm reveling in the youth of my 30s in Great Britain, supply-teaching in primary schools near Birmingham and enjoying newlywed life, being a mommy, and all the surprises they bring!
