When I sat to write this post a lot of things popped into my mind when I thought of light. I thought of a clear blue sky, the sun coming though the trees and highlighting the warm orange of the leaves in Autumn, the patterns created when the sun comes through a stain glass window, a bright white immaculately decorated room, a cosy fire, and a romantic table setting with candles.

Light is a mighty powerful thing.

So today I decided to create a Pinterest board just for beautiful images of ‘light’. You can find the board here and if you are on Pinterest send me your links of I can follow!
