It’s been an exciting couple of weeks, although I’ve been unusually quiet lately (especially on twitter). The reason being, I have been asked to host and produce several VERY exciting events over fashion week, which I can’t wait to share with you! Between that, keeping up with my social life, getting everything in order for officiating my consulting business (I’m such an adult!) and managing my Pretty Connected world, it’s been a lot. Although I haven’t felt this exhilarated in a long time. Don’t get me wrong, averaging 4 hours of sleep/night, every few days I hit a wall and am ready to jump of a bridge. My boyfriend one-uped me and said how about a plane?
After several attempt to go skydiving over the summer and it being canceled due to weather conditions we finally made it! The perk of being flexible on the time and open to a weekday, we had a reservation for the next day. And it was just what I needed. A total adrenaline rush and 4 minutes of being completely out of my head to just enjoy the world and soak in the scenery.
After 45 seconds of free-falling, my instructor released the parachute and we floated for a few minutes doing twirls and taking in the sunset before making a perfect landing. I didn’t realize it until I got the pictures, but I’m a hard-core lip biter when I’m nervous!
It’s kind of the most amazing thing ever!
We jumped in Perkasie, PA at skydivingphiladelphia.com. My instructor was Rom (he was great, although he believes in humor over instruction until about 30 seconds before you’re about to be hurled off the plane). Onward and upward!
