Birthday Balloon Release
My birthday was last weekend, and it was really wonderful. It was actually a three-day-long celebration that ended up continuing sporadically for a whole week just because two of my very good friends (Ashley and Mike) also have birthdays within four days of mine. The height of my celebration, though, was meeting with a bunch of my friends in middle of Fells Point for a balloon release.
Before you get your panties in a bunch, the balloons were bio-degradable and we removed the ribbons before we let go. It was a beautiful, whimsical, and meaningful gesture for me in honor of the beginning of my 27th year of life. We wrote what we wished for on our balloon and, as a group, let them float off into the sky.
Our wishes were about our jobs, animals, adventure, birthdays, penises, transportation, and, of course… world peace.
I could have watched them float away on repeat for hours. Luckily, I have footage of it, and between my and Jason’s Go Pro cameras, I can relive the moment for the rest of forever. So can you.
