Skydiving – Accomplished!

October 9, 2016

Skydiving has been on my bucket list for over 10yrs. I wanted to skydive with my husband but he is deathly afraid of heights so I dropped the subject. Then along came a good friend, Marci and one day I asked her if she wanted to and she did!  Weeks went by, and we got busy. She pinged me again when another friend of ours posted a picture of her recent skydiving activities. GOT IT! I called and made the appointment for us to jump on October 2nd. That morning, the winds were too high and they rescheduled us to October 9th.

Then I went off on a business trip to Seattle and forgot all about our disappointment of not skydiving.


First time in Seattle and it was great for a 2day, 1night venture. I stopped at DryGoods Design in the morning to shop and have a fancy breakfast with Keli.

Then it was off to my work meetings. . . .my meeting ended the next day around noon and I had plotted to head to Seattle ChinaTown for Dim Sum.

We headed to Pike’s Place and really did the tourist-y things:

  • Visited the Gum Wall – so gross!!

  • Watch the guys throw fish

  • Walk through the Seattle Aquarium (check out my fb video on it)


After a stressful week at work – I was looking forward to our Skydiving adventure.  It was a blast and I would do it again. Surreal when you’re hanging your legs out of the plane and in a split moment you’re free falling to the ground.  Are you like me, when the anxiety and excitement builds up, I just needed to scream. I did purchase the video on my first skydiving adventure and love sharing it with you. Enjoy!

Shout out goes to my great friend, Marci. I couldn’t or wouldn’t do it alone and if you weren’t there to nudge me then I don’t know when I would have done the appointment. And for my husband to encourage me to follow my dreams and support all my crazy ideas.
