I know, I know, it's been ages since I've blogged. There's a lot that I'd like to share, but I'm not sure how to even start! The last time I blogged, I was just back from Nationals, now, Worlds is done and World Team Trophy is happening next week - the season is almost over! Holy cow what a fast year!
February was a busy month for me - I moved back home from Humber and I also did two skating competitions under my own brand, which were a major success. I can't wait to continue my relationship with EOS, they are such a nice group of volunteers, parents and skaters. I honestly do not have enough kind words! I also have to compliment COS and the Brampton-Chinguacousey Skating Club on a successful and enjoyable STARskate Championships as well! Two excellent weekends of skating back to back!
March was a quiet month - which was a nice change compared to the hectic winter! I only did one competition in Fort Erie. Oh, and I got to take in the ISU World Figure Skating Championships in London, ON. It was AMAZING. We had originally only bought tickets to the pairs event because of the high prices, however my mum surprised me with Men's Long Program tickets as well!! I can't stress enough how amazing the experience was. My kind friend Aaron offered to drive my mom and I to the venue from the mall close to his residence so that we didn't have to worry about parking and it was great. The atmosphere both in the arena and the city was great and the skating was even better. What an amazing experience!
I'm now writing on the other side of Easter weekend and it's STILL snowing. I can't wait until spring really is here! I'm really looking forward to nicer weather. I am however gearing up for a BUSY month, so hopefully once everything calms down for the skating season, spring will be here without question!
This weekend I'm going to be at 3 different ice shows! Friday I'm in Strathroy for the CSCS Ice Show, Saturday I'm at a dress rehearsal for the Guelph Ice Show and then in the evening I'm in Hamilton for their 75th Anniversary Ice Show. Then, on Sunday, I am back in Guelph for their show once again this year. I'm very excited!
Then, on the 13th, when I was assuming I would be in Thornhill, I am actually going to be flying to Boston, Massachusetts with Maddie and Lesley to cheer on Lesley as she runs the Boston Marathon for the SECOND year in a row! How amazing is that?! I'll get home on Wednesday, the 17th and then the next weekend (April 26th) I'm heading up to Scarborough for Scarboro Skate and a visit with my lovely friend Kristy WIlls!!
All in all it's going to be a action-packed month and I can't wait to share some of the images that I will capture in a future post.
Another exciting announcement that I have is that I will be heading to Columbus, Ohio June 14-15 to photograph and support the Skate for Hope Ice Show.
