Having a Moment: Hot Air Balloons

I have this ridiculous phobia of balloons…but thankfully my fear-o-meter doesn’t seem to be triggered by hot air balloons. Phew! I don’t want to go up in one (thank you very much) but they sure are pretty to look at. Maybe they aren’t exactly holiday-season appropriate, but even still I’ve been noticing more and more of them popping up around online, and I’m guessing that we’ll be seeing a full-on hot air balloon trend soon. What do you think? Are hot air balloons the new mustaches? xo Ez

P.S. I just got back from my sister’s beautiful wedding and am too exhausted to coax my brain into dreaming up any additional posts today. I promise to make-up for it next week with at least one recipe and a great DIY. Have a wonderful weekend.

P.P.S The Martha Stewart Crafts Dept. kindly invited me to contribute a DIY project for their Holiday Gift Wrap Challenge next week. I’ll be in great company with amazing contributions from Something’s Hiding In Here, Shimtokk, and Hello Sandwich. Keep a lookout on Monday for my project…and then on Friday I hope you’ll pop by The Crafts Dept. and vote for your favorite (even if it’s not mine).

P.P.P.S. Chris from Curbly sweetly asked me to share a mini Christmas wishlist and a holiday thought or two with their site, and I happily obliged. If you’re interested, you can check it out here.
