So We Set The World On Fire


Matt bought ohhh about thirty trillion paper lanterns for us to release on Valentine's day this year....but they didn't get to us in time. So after they finally arrived this week we invited some friends over to release our love lanterns all at once. It was weirdly calming to see the lanterns float away and then disappear into the night sky....and then not so calming to see one get stuck in a tree while still on fire. I was pretty convinced we were about to set the world on fire (can't you just not stop listening to that song lately, oh it's controlling my life). No but really, one got stuck in a tree, the boys all went to save the day and the girls just ran away. What don't judge....okay yeah judge we're terrible people, BUT GREAT RUNNERS!  Alas, the boys did indeed save the day and the world stayed safely...un-charred.  We still have at least fifteen lanterns left though so we're going to need some ideas from you guys. What should we do with the extras?!

  3. Oh my gosh! That sounds like such a fun night. I find hilarious that all the girls ran away. Teehee. I think that you guys should use them for your next wedding anniversary; they would help make it even more memorable. :)

  11. I just did this with a bunch of people in my ward on Friday! It was a guy in my ward's birthday so he bought a bunch of these, we went to the bottom of Y mountain and then floated them off while the Tangled song "I See the Light" played. It was really beautiful to be looking out at all the lights while seeing those lanterns floating upward. Something cool would be hiking up all the way to the Y and letting them off there? :)

  13. What a cool idea! I have wanted to do that ever since I saw Tangled. They look so pretty! I think I might have to look into the idea of getting some to release on my birthday this year.

  19. I've done that before and I definitely was glad the guys were there because without them my silly self would have let them out where there are tons of trees but instead we went to a huge field, much safer! That song is controlling my life too! It's such a good summer song.
