Balloon Escape

It’s Friday and you don’t have to go too far to escape. Our DC latte art master Reilly O’Hara snagged this sweet shot from a hot air balloon in Charlottesville, Virginia, last week. The flight was to celebrate his mom’s 60th birthday – and she loved it! A nice reminder that adventure is for all of us, at any age, and that it can be found right in our own backyards.

Happy Friday, folks.


  1. Are you allowed to pass on the name of the company, sort of as a word of mouth referral? (I would never feel comfortable asking a barista directly, plus they are always so busy and they never write anything down so we figure they are remembering everything in their heads.) Maybe there is only one company licensed in that area. Virginia is for lovers! 🙂 and their kids, too.

  2. Are you allowed to recommend a travel blog since there are so many travel blogs on the web? Is there one or two that LC people trust? For example, we want to find out about apparel without advertising it here by mentioning it, specifically, jackets with numerous pockets that have all kinds of cool features mentioned in marketing ads.
