Congratulations! You now know just about how I felt after my two hour extra ballet rehearsal en pointe today. Ha. I took off of my shoes and my toes were purple.
I love ballet. I started when I was seven years old, because, of course, every seven year old wants to be a ballerina. But now it's something more - now I do it for the love of being graceful.
I started pointe at the beginning of the school year. Yeah, it hurts - but it's worth it because pointe shoes are just so darn photogenic!
And in case you were wondering...
Madison took these two.
These were all taken while we had a break in the action.
Note: Those are my friend's shoes above - my ribbons do not look that pretty once I'm done tying them. More like tucked under, please-stay-for-the-whole-rehearsal-without-falling-out knots.
Have a wonderful Wednesday! I'm going to go soak my feet in saltwater...
PS: There's a giveaway going on at Got Freckles!
