My sweet sister Toby and I found ourselves awake at 5am this past Saturday to catch a ride in a hot air balloon over Napa Valley. A balloon ride has been on my to do list for years, and I must say, it was even better than I expected. It was spectacular.
We lifted off just as the sun rose over the valley. We had perfect conditions, incredible scenery, and a (mimosa) brunch once we had all feet back on the ground. We agreed it was one of the most peaceful, beautiful experiences that allowed us to truly slow down from our hectic New York City lives. We were both so present, with wide eyes and clear minds, drinking in all the beauty. For a little while, we were like birds floating through the sky.
