The weekend was as awesome and filled with tummy-butterflies as I anticipated. I felt so fulfilled (and quite tired) when we were all safe at home on Sunday evening. I let my boys go away for an entire weekend with their auntie, my generous and wonderful sister. This was huge for me. I spend so much time with my monkeys these days that letting them go so far away and for two whole nights was, well, a big deal. Ultimately I knew I had to let go, and let them have fun with their auntie and cousins, away from me, for a few days. It was the right decision. They had a blast. They are still completely exhausted from the fun that was had.
And the other huge part of the weekend was that I made my first skydive in four years. I honestly cannot believe it had been that long. Before Elijah was born I was skydiving every weekend in the summer-time. Since the summer I found out I was pregnant with Sammy, I hadn’t made a single jump.
I knew the boys were going to be with my sister for the weekend, so I made the decision to jump! Skydiving has always been one of the only things to make me forget my worries and to make me feel free, at-peace, liberated, empowered and wonderful (and on and on). I found out on Saturday that nothing had changed. It felt incredible to be back in the sky again. And to make it even better, I was able to make my first jump back with my wonderful husband!
