My very first ice skating show. I remember my mom staring at me curiously as I stared at my Oksana Baiul poster intently for 10 whole minutes trying to channel her cold perfection. Picked this can’t-miss outfit (though i was furious about the required undershirt haha) because I planned on spinning so quickly I’d look like some fuchsia fireworks or something. Instead I stumbled. Badly. Inside this face was a fountain of unreleased tears lol. Yet my parents told me the fall didn’t matter because I still looked cute lol. This smile was for them.
