Adventures and Happiness

Well, my weekend has kicked off to an amazing start. I just got home from my hot air balloon flight. This was one of the items listed on last year’s list of things to do. It was actually on a short Life List I made about 10 years ago. The list consisted of hot air balloon ride, running a mile straight, selling my artwork. I have now completed all three of those things. Wow. Amazingness from now on out. Ten years ago, those things seemed so far and distant, with no plan set in sight as to how I would accomplish them.

I will post pictures from the ride later this weekend, but right now I just had to post this web cam shot I just took. I am wearing a shirt I altered last night, specifically to wear today. I had the idea a long time ago, drew it out in my sketch book and then forgot about it until earlier this week when I was emailing back and forth with Bri. It’s inspired by the “Adventures + Happiness” brooch by LaurelHill on Etsy, that I mentioned a few posts back. I bought the original brooch for my dear friend Nikki, but loved it so much I wanted to keep it for myself. Now, I have cardigan that heralds the same sentiments.

I think hot air balloon flights fit perfectly under adventures and happiness.
