This weekend, we will not be in Albuquerque.

Which I'm a little sad about. Because, this weekend is the annual International Balloon Fiesta (I always want to call a Festival, but it's not. It's a Fiesta.)

Nathan and I have said for years that we want to go, and not just because he grew up in a tiny town about thirty minutes outside Albuquerque.
It just seems so magical. Strolling around hand-in-hand, taking gorgeous pictures of gorgeous hot air balloons. Add a pumpkin spice latte and I go weak in the knees.

It sounds like a wonderful festival. All these photos are beautiful! Enjoy!

Awwww. I'm gonna have to go home and watch Winnie the Pooh now. No joke. Balloons are probably one of my all time favorite things in the whole wide world.
