One of my hubby's favorite quotes is "Get busy livin' or get busy dyin'." We got a chance to do the livin' part tonight... (thankfully- NOT the latter), and do something I have ALWAYS wanted to do. We went on a hot air balloon ride! I'm so grateful for my sweet hubby who on a whim would take me on a romantic hot air balloon to see the sunset! It was absolutely an AMAZING life experience. I have to say, I was pretty terrified at first... when I realized that only the only thing between us and the ground was a wicker-basket, but after a few minutes, I was able to relax and enjoy the experience. The "flight" lasted for about an hour, so I really had a chance to ponder, and get a break from everything. I literally felt like I was "rising above" the stresses of life. It was so tranquil and peaceful to leisurly float above the world and enjoy the beautiful scenery. I'm just so grateful for the opportunity to do this... it is definitely a memory that I will always treasure.

Almost ready for take-off!!
Woo-hoo! Flying high!
Holding on for dear life!! he he ;)
Having a moment of reflection...
There is our shadow in the distance
Getting ready to land!
We skimmed the trees during the landing, but we made it safe and sound. Unfortunately, we landed in some guy's backyard- and my hubby almost died (but I'll save that for another blog post).
Happy to be alive! I'm such a dork, haha!
Whew! What a day! I'd better get to bed... We've got some more livin' to do tomorrow.
