This weekend we celebrated Hanukkah surrounded by friends and food and music and wine.
And to celebrate the seond night of Hanukkah, we had thousands of lights! We headed into town for the annual Parade of Lights -- boat lights that is. Boat people in a boating town take this annual tradition very seriously. In the past we've joined in on decorating teams and the designs are started months before the parade. This year we just enjoyed watching from a friend's gorgeous tug boat that happened to have a fabulous spot and lots of good food. And the night was capped off with one of the best fireworks show our town has ever put on!
With the days getting darker and darker, I am grateful for the many reasons we have to celebrate the light.
