Floating into the sky

balloonsOMG! I DID IT!

Why it was easier for me to jump out of an airplane at 12,000 feet and run unprotected with 2 dozen stampeding bulls, I will never know.

But I finally did it.

I bought my champagne balloon flight from Sonoma Valley Balloons.

I’m still totally FREAKED out about it but I managed to finally click the “Purchase” button and buy my Groupon.

What’s nice is that I have family in the Sonoma area, so I can maybe make a weekend of this and visit my birthfamily in Santa Rosa.

I don’t get to see them enough.

It would be nice to play with my nephews who I haven’t seen in over a year.

And after all that family time, well I’ll just take myself down to the local hot air balloon airport and LAUNCH myself into the sky.

Remarkably, I’ve found something freakier than floating untethered into the cosmos.

What if I have to tell the pilot how much I weigh?

Let’s hope he’s not cute because if he is, I just may lie.

Kidding!

That would be dangerous, right?

  1. Good luck on your hot air balloon adventure. I can’t imagine jumping out of a plane and now you are headed up again in a hot air balloon. Good luck!
