So THIS happened…

I jumped out of an airplane. No joke. I did it. Something I have long been wanting to do, and this wonderful man made it happen for me. We jumped at the opportunity (pun intended) and with both feet… just did it. It was absolutely exhilarating. I have never felt so free in my life. What an experience. At this point, nothing in my life compares to it.

When I say “free”… I mean it. In every sense of the word. Free of all the baggage, free of all the negativity in my life. Free of everything that was previously holding me back and weighing me down. It motivates me to continue to work hard to build a better life for myself so that I can continue to have experiences like this.

I experienced some truly raw emotions during all of this and it reminded me of the kind of human I strive to be… an open, honest, genuinely raw, vunerably REAL human being. Thank God for freeing me of my past and allowing me to find my truest self.

Below is a video of the whole event. Now, I’m self-conscious of how much weight I have gained since getting clean… but seriously, screw it. I love this new me, and if this is the skin I’ve been given to exist as this new me in- then I love every inch of it!


A proud momma to Pedro, a gorgeous Cane Corso, American Staffordshire Terrier fur-baby. I've recently adopted little Oakley... a Great Pyrenees, German Shepherd, Pit mix puppy and little Oliver, an animated orange kitten. I was proudly raised in the middle of cornfields, barefoot, playing in the dirt. I have grown to appreciate all of God’s land, all that occupy it, and any way I can stay creative on it... including writing.
