“Skating was the vessel into which I could pour my heart and soul.” ~ Peggy Fleming A Skater’s Heart  There is literally nothing, NOTHING like gliding across the ice, hearing your blades scratch sweet music and even sweeter etchings into the ice.

“Take good care of your skin and hydrate. If you have good skin, everything else will fall into place.” ~ Liya Kebede The struggle is real From the time I reached puberty, I had a love hate relationship with my face.

In fact I wasn’t sure if ….

I Was a Skater Girl

“I’d like to cause a little riot in skating.” ~ Sasha Cohen  Okay, I actually wasn’t the kind of skater that Avril was singing about, but I still can’t help think of that song every time skating comes up. As a very teeny tiny youngling, I use to skate on the pond near my house, on two bladed skates which years later ….
