It’s only been a week and a half of the holiday season and I’m already exhausted. I maaaay have over-committed, but all the plans are such fun ones!
While in Nashville last month, I discovered Branded Collective. This nonprofit jewelry designer employs victims of human trafficking. Each piece features a unique number to represent the physical brand often given to victims of human trafficking. In addition to liking the look of the line itself (particularly the copper, which is a unique rose gold color), I like the story behind it. In a small way, I [hopefully] helped empower women and supported local business. After reading the bio of A, the survivor who stamped my bracelet, I found we had some fun similarities!
What a surprise that my handsome beau got us theater tickets out of nowhere! We saw A Bronx Tale (the new musical, not the original one-man show). It was the perfect show for us: Albert loves mob movies, including A Bronx Tale; I love going to Arthur Avenue. The show, which just launched in previews was fun toe-tapper. Honestly, the New York Times’ review hit it right on the head. The only thing I’d add is that it really picks up in the second act. A fabulous Tuesday night date night!
It’s the Christmas season, which means a trip to Rolf’s was in order. I don’t even care how packed it gets, you can’t beat the feeling of standing inside a Keebler elf Christmas tree. This year I learned my lesson. Knowing how deadly their holiday martini is, I took the following day off to nurse the imminent hangover.
