Details of the Weekend

Happy Monday, friends!
I am so excited for this week - for a couple reasons: it's a short work week, spending time with the family and of course the food ...
So here's to hoping these next few days fly by!

If you follow me on Instagram [@amandapattison_] you may have noticed a few hot air balloon postings over the weekend.
That is because on Saturday what was originally a dinner date with two friends turned into an unexpected adventure.
Lori Jill and I decided to check out Balluminaria.
 The event takes place at Mirror Lake in Eden Park, one of the many Cincinnati parks.
11 hot air balloons lined up around the lake and for 2 hours put on what is called a 'balloon glow'.
We entered in on the backside of the lake so we were right in the middle of the action, which made for some pretty cool pictures.
Though the coolest pictures came at the end of the night when we made our way around to the other side.
 From there you could see the glow of all 11 balloons and their reflections in the lake - check out this amazing shot someone captured!

This is definitely something I plan on making a yearly tradition.
If you are in the Cincinnati area I highly recommend putting this on your list of things to see next year.
