In my 26 years on this earth, I've not yet had a month like May 2015. The month of May was a crazy one...very busy and full of adventure. Probably the most adventurous month of my entire life thus far. Skydiving definitely tops anything I'd ever done and that was in early May. Then for my birthday I got the most amazing gift I've received yet. Michael took me on a hot air balloon at sunrise (Sunrise Balloons)! That was definitely an experience I wish everyone would/could try. There is no wind resistance or anything...you're not jerked around at all or feel any fear and I'm not too fond of heights. (Unless you're deathly afraid of heights than this isn't for you!) You just hop into a big basket and float up into the sky with about 12 other people and go along with the wind at 6-7 miles an hour. You have a 'pilot' and he feeds you champagne in dixie cups which definitely calmed my nerves. This was one of the most beautiful experiences of our lives, I think. There were about 22 balloons that went up with us that morning and it was a site to see.
After our morning of ballooning, we headed to Ponte Winery and had a delicious breakfast. Then we headed back to Monte De Oro and had 2-for-1 wine tasting at 11 in the morning! May 2015, I love you. Bring it on June! You have some major competition!
