Up Up and Away in my beautiful balloon...
Yep... The first hot air balloon flight took place on June 5, 1783 in France.
Have you ever taken a hot air balloon ride? I haven't but think I'd like to. And I'm afraid of the combination of height + moving. So yeah, Ferris Wheels are out for me! LOL
I saw on a Giada weekend getaway a couple years ago where she visited Sonoma Valley. On Sunday morning she took a balloon ride high above Sonoma Wine country then went to brunch buffet at a local establishment. It was like a package deal kind of thing. At the time I had entered a Build A Better Burger competition. The cook-off was always held in Sonoma Valley (sponsored by a wine vineyard) and I hoped I'd get to be a finalist so I could go. Alas, it was a anniversary year and they moved the cook-off event to Miami FL. I had no interest in FL so wasn't too bent out of shape when I didn't place in the top 10.
Okay... So here's your inspiration for this week:
You are NOT limited to the colors in the balloon, just wanted a little something to get your creative gases flaring!
