...it's me falling out of the sky!
As some of you already know, my 30th birthday was last week. I decided I needed to do something youthful. I chose skydiving. So this past Saturday, my friend Amber and I did our first tandem skydives. It was INCREDIBLE and I would highly recommend it. It was also, however, really freakin' scary as there is absolutely nothing that can prepare you for jumping out of an airplane at 10,000 feet and free-falling at the rate of 120 miles per hour for approximately 5,000 feet. Once the parachute opened (and boy, was I happy when it did!), I throughly enjoyed the view and found it absolutely amazing to view the world from that level. The adrenaline rush that lasted me the rest of the day was cool, too. :)
This is a bit belated, but I wanted to touch on three incredible things that happened to me in my twenties, for all of which I am truly thankful:
1. Marrying Bryan. I had no idea as a horribly immature 22 year old that I would meet the man of my dreams. Thank God he decided to put up with some of my issues and give me a chance. Thank goodness also that I was smart enough to pull my head out of my you-know-what and realize that I was about to let the most important person in my life slip away. It's been seven years since then and I would not trade a minute of it for anything in the world.
2. Jonathan. The birth of my son and my current side-kick has been more rewarding (and challenging!) than I could ever imagine. It was definitely an interesting way to round out the last third of my twenties!
3. Passing the bar exam and becoming an attorney. I've wanted to be an attorney since I was in third grade. Despite the fact that my job is not always dreamy, I am fulfilled in that I satisfied my goal and am able to derive at least some personal satisfaction from my chosen profession.
I am a bit sad to now be in my thirties, but my twenties turned out to be so great that I can't wait to see what this next stage of my life has in hold for me!
