Women in Hockey: Gina Carlson and Lucca’s Blessings
Do you love kids? Are you a mom? Have you recently had a baby? Curious about what it’s like to date/be married to a professional athlete? If you answered yes to any of these questions you should check of the blog of Gina Carlson (Lucca’s Blessings), mom to beautiful son Lucca and husband to Washington Capitals D-Man John Carlson.
Gina’s most recent blog post was something we thought would interest our readers. We have a lot of friends who are moms with kiddos ages three and under and have gone through some of the things Gina talks about on her blog including what it is like to be married to a hockey player, pregnancy and post-pregnancy, and the challenges of being a first-time mom.
Perhaps the most incredible thing about Gina is her passion for St. Jude Children’s Hospital. Gina recently held an auction via her Instagram page for a DC Sports basket which included signed jerseys from her hubby and Washington Nationals pitcher Gio Gonzalez, and tickets to a Caps game among other things! The basket went for a final bid of $2,250.00. This is just one example of the awesome fundraising efforts by Gina and will certainly not be the last.

Thank you Gina for letting us share your story.
