Up, up and away!
There’s something so humbling about standing beneath a hot air balloon as it slowly rises and sways toward the sky, its colorful sheath expanding and intensifying with vivid colors. The fierce blast of heat is startling, electrifying and captivating all together. Behind the din of children laughing and cameras clicking, I grabbed a moment within myself to feel the calm excitement of flight and allowed my soul to soar above the barn roofs and tall pines. My children were so happy and beautiful tonight. My husband kissed me a lot. It was as if our stumbling blocks took flight in one of those balloons, far far away from where we stood.
