Up...Up and Away!

We aren not in Kansas anymore! That's what I thought after my husband convinced me to take a balloon ride. I know this post has nothing to do with design, and I promise to get back to reality tomorrow. However,  I had to share this experience.  My husband asked for a ballon ride for his 50th birthday which was this last March. I am not fond of heights but I felt badly and gave him a gift certificate to Hunterdon Ballooning. Now that Summer had passed I thought he had forgotten about my gift....  I guess not! Yesterday we went for our first Balloon ride.
It was actually really beautiful and I cannot believe I am saying this, but I think I would do it again!

The balloon Captain's son was in an ultralight glider taking photos of us!!


The lovely Neighborhood we landed in!

We actually skimmed this roof line and the trackers had to drag the balloon to the front yard in order to deflate it! What an experience, if you haven't ballooned, sign up now!


  1. how lovely! i've never been up in one, and i'm kinda nervous about the idea. what a fun experience.



    1. Believe me I was too, but once your up its amazing!!
      Hope you are doing well!

  2. What fun! Good for you for trying this! We have hot air ballooning near by. It's near the wineries surrounded by countryside. We were there a couple days ago and watched the balloons flying as the sun began to set. It was so pretty:) Thanks for sharing your photos! xxL

  3. Hi Karolyn!

    That looks like so much fun! I think I would be ok trying it as long as the winds were fairly calm. I imagine you must have felt like a little bird up there looking down on the world.
    What a nice gift. Thanks for sharing it with all of us!
    (Your hubby looks pretty excited!)



I always enjoy hearing from my viewers so comment frequently!
