I love holiday lights.
You can tell by the vast array of holiday inflatables in our front yard, that we take exterior illumination pretty seriously around here. People come from miles around to take family photos in front of our holiday display, (okay, that only happened once, but it was awesome.)
I’m fortunate to live in Austin, TX, where we have one of those most amazing light displays around: The Trail of Lights.
The only thing that gets me as excited as a beautiful light display is finding a way to skip the lines to see that beautiful light display – That’s why I LOVE the ZIP Fast Pass!
The ZiP Fast Pass gives attendees front-of-the-line access to the Trail at 6 PM, before it opens to the public. Yes, please!
Here’s a recaps of the lights from the 2015 Trail of Lights. I wish I could show you photos from the 2016 Trail of Lights, but thanks to one kid with pneumonia and a husband and other kid with the flu, the only lights I get to see this year are the lights on their digital thermometers.
Once upon a time, Susanne Kerns was a Senior Account Director at an advertising agency working for two of the top brands in the world. Nine years ago she traded in her corporate life for a life as a stay at home mom, raising two of the best kids in the world. She started her blog, The Dusty Parachute as a way to dust off her online advertising skills and begin her job search. Instead, she now uses it as a way to spend lots of time on the computer so her kids think that mommy has a job.
Susanne’s essays have been featured in Scary Mommy, BonBon Break and Redbook and she is also a contributor in the books, It’s Really 10 Months, Special Delivery and Martinis & Motherhood – Tales of Wonder Woe & WTF?!
