About three years ago my best friend had this great idea to go ice skating with her closest friends for her 15th birthday. It was my first time, and it’s safe to say I’m no natural. There was plenty of falling, and plenty of laughing. Looking back on it now, it’s a really great memory that I will always smile at, even if I won’t be launching a pro-ice skating career anytime soon.
So, being someone with an awesome sense of humor, my mother thought it would be hilarious to get me an Ice Skate ornament that Christmas. Every year that I hang it on the tree, I remember that day and how much fun we all had, and how sore we all were the next morning.
