I could never hula hoop when I was a kid. I’d push it and it would circle around me maybe three times and then fall to the ground. I figured it was one of those things that just didn’t work for me (like somersaults… I’m quite the clutz).
Two summers ago, the day I met Kyle, I was hanging out in my friend’s yard in Pittsburgh and she brought out a grown up hula hoop. I made a joke that I probably still couldn’t do it and picked it up anyway. Then something magical happened:
…I did it!
And I have pretty much been obsessed ever since. Last summer I convinced my wonderful friend Eva to join me (which is lucky since she has a much bigger/ less crowded living room than me – hehe).
We got a chance to get together last weekend and record some videos of us hooping to share.
Someday I’m going to nail the step in/step out trick, some day.
I love how deliberate Eva’s movements are. So pretty!
So… anyone interested enough to join us?!
