Currently listening to: Michael Penn – Walter Reed
So my 38 days of winter break are almost behind me, and it was exactly what I needed. I got to reconnect with my family, friends, SLEEP and relax.
While my sister was in town, our family bundled up and headed to see the Trail of Lights (ToL). ToL is Austin’s winter wonderland; Zilker Park is lit up with thousands of lights and there’s a giant tree at the end that you inevitably spin under.
I’ve lived in Austin for most of my life but have only been to the ToL a handful of times. I guess it’s one of those things that you take for granted when you live in a city for a long time. And who knows? Come December 2009, I might not even be in Austin. Definitely something fun to do with your friends after finals are over! Get outside, check out the lights, have some cocoa
Check out my goofy family (below) at the ToL holiday portraits and ToL video I made.
