Lucky Thirteen

Today Landon and I celebrate thirteen years of marriage.  I have the best husband I could ever ask for.  God has blessed me with a wonderful husband who is also a great father.  I am so very thankful and proud to call him mine. 

One of the things I love most about Landon is his thoughtfulness.  This year, he planned an overnight trip and wouldn't tell me where we were going.  I can't believe he didn't break down and tell me after my RELENTLESS questioning and begging.  I could only get a few vague clues here and there to string me along, but I honestly had no idea what he had planned. 

He took me to Kingsport, Tennessee for a hot air balloon festival.  I was SOOO excited when I found out!  I have a fascination with hot air balloons and I couldn't wait to see them up close and in person. 

There were 21 balloons registered for the festival.  They were scheduled to launch at 6:30 that evening so we sat on the sidewalk and waited.
...and waited.  Finally we saw some action.  Two balloons were starting to get blown up.
As these two balloons were getting filled up, someone came running down the road and told them to shut it off.  The weather was too risky to launch.  It was windy and a storm was brewing.  As we walked down the road a little disappointed, we got there just in time to see the only one of the day take flight.

This was really awesome to see.  Landon said too bad it was a Re-Max balloon.  haha.  I told him Tri-Star should invest in one too.  Even though this didn't go according to plan, it was still a great getaway to have uninterrupted conversation.   Now I really want to ride in one!


I look forward to many more wonderful years together.
