I was basking in the afterglow of our amazing skydive all day today. Several people asked me, as they do every Monday, how my weekend was and what I did. How cool is it to respond to that with, "My weekend was fantastic. I went skydiving yesterday!" There's a millisecond of a pause where people blink and you can almost see a thought bubble over their heads saying, "Did she just say skydive?!"
I'm sure my friends Monica, Gina and Fiel shared in this pleasure too today. It was so awesome to jump with them. There's no way I would've been able to do this alone, so I have them to thank for helping me make that leap. All the jokes and never-ending chatter kept me from running far and away into the sunset.
Tonight the rest of the pictures started going up on Facebook, and I've spent the last few minutes just giggling over the funny memories and gasping at thrilling images. Check out Monica's and Gina's amazing skydive shots ...
We had one videographer each so some of them were able to capture the moment of the jump. In these pictures you'll get to see the amazing videographers who leapt with us to immortalize the moment. The first shows me just as we all jumped from the plane, while the second is Monica bidding the plane adieu. How wild is it that Monica's videographer is just right in front of her as she falls?
And the before pictures, with all of us looking surprisingly calm and happy, despite having just signed away our lives.
Good times, you guys! I am so glad I had a great group to jump with. I do hope that when (not if) some of you adrenaline junkies out there finally get the chance to take the leap, you'll have some equally nutty friends to join the fun and share this phenomenal experience with you. Thank you Gina, Fiel and Monica for being part of this awesome ride!
