A Ballooning We Shall Go
So this weekend we went to visit my husband's family in the Cinci area. There was an annual Balloon Festival going on and while we didn't get to see the actual launch (thanks for that, high wind) the festival was tons of fun.
And hey- we ate funnel cake.
At the end of the night there was a laser light show and also a balloon glow where a few of the competing balloons (it's a weekend long race) are illuminated while being tethered to the ground.
I couldn't believe how beautiful the balloons were, lit from within, in the dusk of the evening. So lovely.
John has two young nephews and they LOVED it! They kept asking me to "take a picture" of pretty much every angle possible. Maybe some day they'll grow up to be photographers.
All of the family fun time meant zero time for creating this week. That means I'm a little behind, but promise to be back tomorrow with goodness. Facebook fans weighed in and we'll be having a marriage series later this week! My husband and I are both trained in marriage counseling (he more than myself), courtesy of our trade, and we're passionate about healthy marriages. We'd love to share a little bit with you! I imagine it would be beneficial to anyone in a serious relationship, though, and also for people who would like to be some day. I'll get into more during the actual series, but stay tuned! Next week will be the organic series and we still have our Downton Abbey inspired fashion DIY series coming up too! It's the summer of series, apparently.
I hope your Monday was lovely and your weekend left you refreshed! Have a great evening and as always, thanks for reading!
