it was insane.

it was amazing (i wish i could show you the video but for some reason blogger is not cooperating with me).

it was an adrenaline rush like i have never had before.

it was hands down one of the best experiences of my entire life.

it was 60 seconds of free fall from 13,000 feet on a gorgeous day in the pacific northwest. we couldn't have asked for a better day.

it was so incredible to take in the view of seattle, everett, mount rainier, the lakes, the sound, the list goes on and was jaw dropping the entire time.

it was such a powerful reminder to live. really live. to enjoy every single second.

it was a reminder that life can be full of so many amazing experiences, you just have to say yes when the chance comes up.

it was a chance to show malena that you can do anything you set your mind to. she got to watch her mom parachute down after jumping out of a plane. she has watched the video no less than 10 times today. i know she will never forget it.

it was an opportunity to build memories with my friends rob, sasha and tim that we will always share. building memories that i will carry with me, and that family and friends will carry with them, is so important to me. being intentional in looking for those special moments is a big part of my focus these days.

it was better than i could have ever imagined.

it was living life to the fullest.

living life.

to the fullest.

anywhere i fly, you fly. i carried you all with me today. xo

  1. Found your blog a few weeks ago doing a "melanoma" search. So glad to have found it and I enjoy reading it all the way over here in Cincinnati! Thanks for writing so honestly and for sharing what you are experiencing.
    Glad that you got to jump; you are so courageous! Yikes, I get car sick, I'm a hot mess on a boat or a plane. Cannot imagine doing the skydiving- great pictures!
