Y’all. I TOTES rode a HOT STINKING AIR BALLOON! *steps away from the caps lock*

Hot air balloon, much?

Is there awesome in that? THEN YES!

I went to Evo Conference last week and left inspired.




When I make my bucket list, I will get to cross-off ride in a hot air balloon, especially after looking at different hot air balloon facts I’ve discovered!

Cuz homies – THAT TOTES GOT DID!

And I feel it was fate that my ballooning partner was the adorable and crazy-fun Karina. You know… The Bucket List Girl!

Karina, The Bucket List Girl and Me!
Candle Warmers was at Evo and I won a hot air balloon ride at the conferences. And it was AMAZEBALLS.

Breathtaking, no?

Who is Candle Warmers? They are a company that sells flameless candles. You get the light, beauty, and smell of a candle, but without the danger of an open flame. I have a plug-in in my bathroom. Mine looks different, but you get the idea…

Unlike a candle, kids can “work” a Candle Warmer – with the simple flip of a switch.

CASE IN POINT… I wrote a post about Lucy’s infatuation with flames back in 2010. Here’s a section of that post:

  • … no counter/island [even if it is the size of a king size bed] will keep a curious toddler from climbing atop and getting to a candle… a counter SO large, in fact, even Mom has to climb on the counter to reach said candle.
  • Keep in mind — kids watch what you do. They do what you do. Say, for example… climb on LARGE counters and “pway wif a candwl wike Mama.”
  • Paper towels can be good… and also very bad, depending on their purpose. Additionally, paper towels are quite flammable and when they catch fire over a candle’s flame… they look like flaming snowflakes falling UP.

With our Candle Warmer, Lucy can just flip a switch without risking her life AND our home.

Next on my list? This:

A BIG thank you to Candle Warmers for helping me check-off an item on my bucket list before it is even written AND for making canlde-like things my kids can “pway wiff”.

*I was not compensated for this post. Candle Warmers gifted me to a ride in a hot air balloon and while I am sure they hoped I would share about them, it was not required of me. This post is shared out of the pure excitement of my own heart. PEACE.

    Oh my gracious … that is beautiful. Not gonna lie though, I truly almost got sick at the scene where you looked down at the road & tiny people. Phew. Don’t look down, don’t look down, don’t look down … I feel so silly for being a scaredy cat just by watching the video! I. am. lame. 😛
