It's a Bird, It's a Plane....It's Julie Skydiving!!

There's always been one thing I've always wanted to do....skydive! One of my good friends' twin brother has really gotten into the sport in the last few months, we got to talking a couple of weeks ago and I said I wanted to go with him. So we planned the trip! So what better time than my birthday. That's exactly what I did to celebrate my 28Th birthday....a perfect way to always remember! It definitely is an experience I will never forget. The feeling is so's something that everyone needs to experience. I had SO much fun, I'm already planning my next jump!

Waiting my turn

All geared up & ready to jump!

A little paint goes a LONG way!!

We've lived in our house 3 years this October. Since we moved in our house desperately needed painted. Well, you know how it do things when you have the money! As time went on and all of our lovely Ohio weather kept hitting the house, it was getting worse and worse as the seasons changed. So, last weekend the house FINALLY got painted. I was VERY pleased with the looks completely different and SO much better. It was a mess to watch, but the crew I had here was great! Hope you like our 'new' house as much as I do!!

If it's hard to see, the colors are a lighter brown & a maroon.

It's 1,000% better and I love the way the colors came out!
