Baby When The Lights Go Out

Now that our Christmas light are officially (and finally) put away for the season, we couldn’t help but look back one more time at all of the great light displays here in Richmond that we enjoyed (if we’re being perfectly honest, we wrote this post a day or two after Christmas but somehow forgot to click publish. Oops. Then Donna‘s comment on Young House Love jogged our memory. Hence it’s egregiously past-the-season lateness).

We loved visiting Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens with John’s parents. They deck the grounds out in thousands of lights each year for their nightly Gardenfest of Lights:
