Our first skydive together. Jonathon is on the ground gathering his parachute while I'm navigating my way to a safe landing. I'm so grateful our friend on the ground snapped this picture, it's my favorite one!
My favorite part of the whole skydive...the free fall.
The Dive That Started It All
My first skydive! This was in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Damien was my instructor. Turns out that he is originally a farm boy from Kansas City who fell in love with skydiving at age 18. He worked his way up to be a tandem instructor and private pilot. So basically, he's a badass! Four years after this dive I began my own skydiving journey in Kansas City...(small world) :)
Toggles Up, Full Flight!
Enjoying the scenery and deciding where to land
We're Going Up!
Jonathon and I with our instructors, getting ready to board the plane to take us up to 14,000 ft!

Jonathon's landings are enviable. He excels at canopy work and landing. Me? Not so much. I nail the body control in free fall and say my prayers coming in for my landings!
Getting Ready To Board Again!
The Greatest Proposal
I had no idea this was coming. Honestly, I was so focused on nailing my landing that it didn't even register in my mind that this sign was for me! LOL!
