{ up }

The first time it was cancelled due to “fog.”
The second time it was due to “Santa Ana winds.”
The third time because of “rain.”
I was pretty much expecting to get a call the next time saying “the trip is cancelled because the weather is just TOO BEAUTIFUL & LOVELY.”

But! It turns out the fourth time is the charm. And so, at 3:30am, I drove to meet up with Lydia & Mary {all of us on 0-2 hours of sleep since we had just been too too excited for sleeping}, and we headed down to Temecula for the early morning ride.

And as you can see, it was most definitely worth the wait.

(Useful fact: we bundled up like crazy because we figured it’d be freezing & windy on the ride, but apparently hot air balloons rides are really hot, because of all the… hot air. OH RIGHT.)

    AHHHH – what can I say about this post other than I wish so much I could have tagged along?!! haha

    This is fantastic! Those views, OMG! And that first shot of Mary? Well, Mary, you need to get that framed — Adrienne perfectly captured the way you feel about being up in the air there, didn’t she? FABULOUS!!!

    PS – OK, not that I’ve met Lydia (or any of you, actually), but I’m used to her profile pic on Twitter so her hair is different here and oh so adorable!

    You girls rock!
