My mum and her husband are on vacation visiting people they know in Hollywood right now. I just got an email describing her day and all the things she saw. Then I got to this part:
"Guess who we met? A fellow hooper. She hooped for us. She had a stand set up with all kinds of hoops for sale. We told her about u. I got her card. I will give u her info later. She wants to change the world about hooping and that its not just a toy."
Awww, it made me so happy to think of a hooper out there in a different country that my mum would randomly run into and feel a connection because her daughter is a hooper as well.
And because the Hollywood girl may never read this, just wanted to send warm fuzzies to all you hoopers out there changing the world :) Mad love to you all <3
Any chance she was closer to Venice/Santa Monica instead of Hollywood proper? Was she blonde? If so, I think I can identify that awesome hooper!
You get me a name and I'll make sure she reads it.
Actually, no. But I'll pass it around...
That would be the wonderful Jennifer Jensen who owns/operates Eclectic Hoops!
Aw, so awesome :)
That's so awesome! All my time in LA (living south but not too far away) and I've never seen anyone hooping!
You ain't been looking... :)
I can't really hang out in a lot of high heat/direct sunlight due to sun sensitivity so I guess that lowers my chances but driving around to show people the sites even during the day I haven't seen anyone in W Hollywood or S Monica / Newport Pier areas... or Laguna or wherever. Guess I was just unlucky! (The only local pictures I've seen down here is of people doing it inside - in stilettos...) Not sure I'd ever be able to do that but who knows if I can find a group to practice/hang out with lol.
My second cousin lives in Long Beach and there is a huge hooping community there it seems. At her wedding, everyone was hooping :P
I live north of LA, but I am in LA frequently and I have seen a few hoopers in Santa Monica. I remember, I went there with a friend once and there were just hoops sitting on the pier! And and and...it was all men hooping! Which was awesome because I rarely see that. :P
