This was my first time in a hot air balloon, although since I have been with Jody, there have been a lot of firsts, most notably, the first time I have been in love with a woman.
Jody has all the attributes I am attracted to in a man. She is funny, confident and compassionate, but she also has qualities the men I have dated, lack. She treats me as an equal and does so, effortlessly.
I look at her and follow her eyes to the sky; the colors of the balloon, highlighted by the sun, and know, for the first time, this is love.
