Winter Memories


I purchased this stamp set especially for the ice skates. I always wanted to learn how to skate and envied those who knew how. I roller skated as a child and thought it must be similar...how hard can it be? A couple years ago, I purchased a pair of lovely white skates and headed for the rink for the first time. Before I stepped onto the ice, I stood there watching these young girls in the center of the rink twirling, skating backwards and doing jumps so gracefully. I thought to myself this is going to be easier than I thought.

Needless to say, I haven't been back since...my ankles and pride hurt for days and I had all I could do to stay upright to make it around the rink a couple times. I quickly realized I have no talent for this sport. I'm satisfied now watching it on television ;)
