discover: hot air ballooning

{Balancing a balloon on my finger}

Last year for Christmas, which is also my moms birthday, I got her a voucher from Groupon for a balloon ride in Temecula (where I grew up), and so we ended up booking it and going on Thanksgiving this year! I love giving experiences for gifts and with all of the daily deal sites out there, you can find some fun things to give to people. It's even more fun when you can experience your gift with the person! If you want to book a balloon ride for someone this Christmas check out Sunrise Balloons. Temecula is known for balloons and wine so it is a great weekend getaway to go wine tasting and check out a balloon ride. If you go I recommend staying at South Coast Winery

My mom is such an amazing, positive woman and I am so thankful for her. I was so happy we got to share such a fun day together. It was great to have Jeff, my step dad, drop us off in the morning, and then Justin, my grandma, and Jeff picked us up and we had an awesome brunch at South Coast Winery! A day to remember :)

Hope you enjoy and get a ballon ride or another fun experience for someone you love for Christmas this year!!!
