I don’t mean my boyfriend since, you know, my husband wouldn’t approve.
My sister’s man surprised her yesterday with a hot air balloon ride for her birthday. How cool is that? He told me about the surprise the night before and I acted all happy and excited, when deep down I was yelling,”NO!! PLEASE! SHE’S MY ONLY SISTER!!!”. Thank goodness he’s more balanced and adventurous than I am, because he knocked it out of the park. Actually, he knocked it off of the ground. She loved it. She wasn’t afraid for her life at all. She didn’t even cry, falling to her knees kissing the dirt and thanking god for gravity….not that I would have done that – no I’d still be passed out from fear.
Anyway – here’s her amazing photos from the heavens. While you’re looking at the shots in the clouds please remember that she’s standing in what looks like a wicker picnic basket – not inside a plane with a seat belt watching a movie. I won’t lie – I was sweating a little looking at these pictures. Thank god I’m not her boyfriend. She’d never leave the house if I was.
Look at that tiny little box that was holding her life….
Away they go. At this point I would have stopped trying to jump out and just started crying.
I’d be speaking in tongues at this point.
Look at this beautiful picture – I’m in awe. If a girl screams in a hot air balloon and you didn’t hear it, did she really scream? Just kidding. She didn’t scream. She was loving it.
This is the shot where I need you all to remember that she’s in an open box, no harness, no nothin’. All hail the newly minted 29 year old.
