@melissajudilla bucket list item since she was a kid was to go sky diving. I would make all these excuses growing up rejecting her offer to go because I wanted to save it for something exotic, but on her 26th birthday I thought this would be the most epic present and would ensure that I actually follow through if I bought us the sky passes. (And then being that it's @dawnashley91 , I have yet to find anything I've asked her to do that she's not down.) This was such an exhilarating, spiritual moment. I'm telling you the plane ride to 13,000 ft my mind was in deep prayer mode. Trying to right my wrongs, thank God for all that I have and experienced, begging God not to see my Grandma just yet, mental images of my Mom and my family and friends I love popping in my head. Like super dramatic while I'm trying to avoid the fact that this plane is getting higher and higher, faster and faster and the only way out is to jump.
Since I entered the plane last, I had to jump first (just great). It happened so quickly he even asked me if I was ready and I didn't even respond. I just went to the edge of the plane and jumped. I surprisingly didn't even fear the free fall because I instantly locked eyes with the aerial view and it was stunning. Everyone always tells me my head is way up in the clouds, but it's because I'm chasing the views. (Melissa better be marking that bucket list with a permanent marker right about now.) @gojumpoceanside
