Gifting With A Purpose

I received two items from Global Purpose in exchange for a social media promotion. 

During this gift giving season do you really think about the items you purchase? What if you could feel as good about your purchase as the person who receives it? This is exactly what Global Purpose has in mind. 

Global Purpose is a purpose-driven enterprise that has a variety of brands under their care. One of those brands is Village Artisan, a company based out of India that pays local women a living wage to crate handcrafted jewelry and home goods. 

Village Artisan can be purchased right where you pick up groceries! Look for the brand in the Blooms section of your local H-E-B store. 




Village Artisan products are 100% eco-friendly and made from a range of natural and recycled materials. Making purposeful purchasing decisions crates a more hospitable world! 

I was gifted these beautiful earrings and handmade cloth banner, now hanging in my dining room.  





Next time you swing by H-E-B, pick up a purposeful gift for your sister, mother or friend!

Jumping Out Of a Perfectly Good Plane

I kicked off my 30th birthday at Skydive San Marcos! Skydiving was part of my 30 before 30 bucket list. Read the full 30 before 30 list here.




My sister was the only other person brave enough to take the plunge with me.




I was TERRIFIED the entire time we suited up and gained elevation on the plane. There is such a build up of anticipation before you jump. I skydived tandem and good thing because I don't know if I could have exited the plane alone.

Once you exit there is such a trilling rush. All my nervousness went out the window, or should I say out the plane. My amazing sister got the DVD package so we both jumped with a videographer who captured these shots during the free fall.






Once your shoot opens, and believe me it will open, you enjoy a very peaceful, slow fall back down to Earth. I enjoyed taking in the view, chatting with my instructor and watching my sister land. 

Skydiving might seem scary, but I encourage everyone to take the jump! You wont regret it.
