Stars on Ice

For over 10 years, I would skate for one hour a week through my local recreation program. Ideally, I would have liked to have joined a figure skating club in order to better hone my skills yet financial considerations prevented this opportunity.  Nevertheless, I eventually passed the entire skating program on my $30 used Bauer skates.

Upon receiving proper figure skates as a gift a couple years ago, I landed a double flip for the first time! A personal validation that I actually had a natural ability!

I used to love watching the World Championships, Olympics and other skating specials on TV as a child. Surprisingly, until now, I had never seen a Stars on Ice performance in person.

Lindt Canada had a giveawy on Twitter for 2 front row seats and I was fortunate enough to win! Glorious and magical are just a couple of words to describe this unforgettable experience!

Here are a few pictures from the event!

Good bye until next time! photo (51)

Thanks again to Lindt Canada for the great seats!
