I am still super amazed at myself that I succeeded in marking something challenging off of my personal bucket-list – in this case, SKYDIVING, and I want to share with all of you my first experience.

I say FIRST because I DO plan on doing this again.. And again.. And again!

Now, I’m not much of a risk taker by any means. But I am spontaneous. And I do like to push the limit from time to time.. And I always love a thrill that makes me scream from the top of my lungs (Cedar Point is my home away from home specifically for that purpose).

So when it came time for me to start my bucket list, this was the first thing I wanted to do. Spur of the moment, I just booked that seat. It would be the first time I got on a plane but would not land in one. Amazing.

But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea. (Matthew 18:6 kjv)

Fairly recently, two pastors local to the city that I live in were arrested and charged with sex trafficking a teenage girl.  Fast forward to today, months later from the when the first arrests were made, and come to find out, a third pastor has been charged with his own alleged involvement with the same case.

Such jaw dropping news spreads fast, and so does opinions.  I can only imagine what the families of the accused feel when being hit with such serious charges.  I feel so sorry for those who were blindsided and also the victims.  I’ve also often wondered how church members deal with the news of finding out their pastor could really be a pedophile, and/or a sex trafficker.

Me at the Base of Eiffel Tower.

 

I’m currently 37 years old, and I have gotten the travel bug.  I have been quite a few places within the United States of America already, but only a handful overseas.  I’ve got a lot to catch up to, many places I want to visit, and not enough money to just get up and go!  I figure that I will be checking these places off my bucket list slowly, one destination at a time… But I definitely will complete it.  Check out my list and tell me what you think!

Do ya wanna know what’t the best southern snack in the world?  Well, at least according to me??

Fried Green Tomatoes!

I just love eating them, especially first thing out of the skillet.  They are just soooo good, and very simple to make.  Add a little of Frank’s red hot to the mix, and these are banging!

With just a handful of ingredients – corn meal, eggs, salt, garlic powder and pepper, canola oil, and of course your fresh green tomatoes, you too can enjoy this super easy and quick side dish / snack / meal.  I don’t know who ever came up with this fabulous idea way back when but, I thank them for it!! 😉 View Post
