3 years ago... Sky Diving!

Three years ago I jumped out of an airplane in Cairns, (Queensland) Australia. Yes, you read that correctly!

If you know me at all (even just reading this blog) you can probably tell I'm not a risk taker. I never really rebelled (you're welcome, mom and dad) and rarely do anything crazy (I would say never but I guess that depends on your definition of crazy).

I still can't believe I did it. Without the DVD, I doubt my family and friends would even believe me!!! It was so out of character that I did it AND I wasn't even afraid (I was actually more afraid to snorkel the morning before). I convinced two friends to go with me. I was the first to jump. There are no words to describe what it is like free falling from thousands of feet in the air!

Think of this post as a reminder to (occasionally) do something crazy and out of character! You never know how it will change your life for the better! On days when I am feeling down I just look at one of these photos and instantly feel happy!


  1. My palms sweat just looking these pictures!! Good for you!

  2. Oh, wow! Sounds pretty liberating, though. :)

  3. Looks Exciting! Good for you, I don't think I am brave enough to skydive!

    That's all I can say.

  5. This is great! I am always nervous doing things out of my comfort zone.. but whenever I do I'm so glad that I did! Thanks for the reminder :)

  6. Good for you! I am so doing that when I turn 50!

  7. oh my gosh! You are so brave.. my boyfriend has been trying to get me to do this but I don't know if I can. I just hate falling!


  8. I did that last year and LOVED it. That story became my first blog story.

    I've gone on to scuba, whitewater rafting, ziplining, and my adventure is continuing. Can't wait for my next one!
