My journey to meeting Sarah was such kismet. Kismet. Noun. Meaning destiny or fate. A handful of years ago, I started seeing Facebook posts about the annual Howard County hot air balloon festival.

Is it just me or are we in the DC metro area just the luckiest to have amazing historical landmarks – like the Lincoln Memorial – right in our backyard??
