I'm a little obsessed with hot air balloons. Just a little. When you imagine the combination of fire, two-thousand feet of open space, a thrilling view, and perfect silence, can you help but smile? I can't! All my life I've wanted to ride in one, and my Dad is taking me on my first balloon ride this spring. I'm so excited! If you're an experienced balloonist, do you have any words of wisdom for a first-timer?
To get in the spirit, I'm browsing the hot air balloon themed items on etsy.

I had a wonderful weekend with Keith, friends, and family. On Friday, Keith and I went to see John Carter. He chose the movie, and my first response was, "Wait, we're going to see a Disney movie about a Civil War veteran on Mars? Umm..." But I was surprised by how much I liked the airships (hot air balloons meet viking triremes, woo!), the adorable Martian Pekingese dog, and watching Taylor Kitsch run around without a shirt on for two hours. I don't care if it's officially been deemed a flop; I liked it a lot.
