I have always wanted to ride in a balloon. We see them floating over our town often. My wonderful husband planned this amazing adventure for our ten year anniversary.
It was so incredible!
We watched the sunrise and other balloons floating over our California rolling hills as the workers readied our balloon.
They put the basket on its side till it was filled with air.
Kevin helped hold the edges open while it filled.
It was so massive. The inside looked like a circus tent. And was HOT! I mean duh, of course, it's a hot air balloon for gosh sake! But it actually singed the front hairs on my head!
I was a little nervous on the way up but the breathtaking views calmed me down.
Looking over our very own beautiful wine country.
Aren't we so lucky to live here?
After floating for an hour we had a champagne brunch with our pilot and he told us the history of ballooning.
It was an amazing experience and precious memory I will never forget.
You know what else was truly amazing and precious? Look on my left hand!
He picked it himself and it was more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. I love him so much and I am looking forward to another ten years with this guy!
