13 years ago, I surprised my newlywed husband with a hot air balloon ride in Galena, Illinois.
A mini-honeymoon road trip led us to Galena, Illinois in 2008. We knew we'd stop in the small town, therefore, I booked a hot air balloon ride. This was a new adventure for both of us.
The process from ground to air is an interesting one.
With all their ducks in a row and the perfect weather conditions, we're ready to take off. It feels like a combination of a little Wizard of Oz and a little Charlie And The Chocolate Factory.
Nerves start to build because this is a new adventure for me. From my experience, nerves are a good thing because they remind me just how excited I am. As we rise above the landscape, I feel nothing but peace and solitude as I admire Galena, Illinois.
