Let there be light!

Since the day we moved in, I thought it was so weird that our garage didn’t have lights flanking it. I love the polished look lights can give next to a garage, I knew it was just a matter of time before we added some of our own. Not only did I want lights for the aesthetic, we desperately needed more outdoor lighting.IMG_1666

After a little convincing Mike agreed we needed to add some lights. He was brave sweet enough to tackle this project by himself, while watching both kids. IMG_1833First he had to cut holes in the house for the new lights. He also had to run new wires for them. I have no idea how to do electrical work, so I won’t even try to explain. In a nutshell he ran the new wires to an outlet on the garage ceiling. The lights have sensors that turn them on and off so it’s no big deal for them to be plugged in all the time.

After a days work we now have two, new, beautiful, lights flanking our garage.IMG_2049IMG_2051IMG_2052IMG_2054They’ve only been up for a few days, but we are already loving the amount of light it gives off. It adds the perfect glow to make our home more inviting. Plus it offers some much needed light for those evenings we spend outside playing with our girls. It’s win, win if you ask me.
