Our Private Preview at Burberry
April turned out to be fantastic.  First, there was another adventure to Washington, D.C. for a second visit to the National Museum of African American History and Culture. This time, the NMAAHC tour included coordinating thirteen family and friends who came from New York, Maryland, and Philadelphia. And I can’t forget my amazing experience at the Chico’s casting call in New York City. But the pièce de résistance this month was our VIP preview at Burberry.

I drove to New York City with my daughter on Monday afternoon to get ready for the casting on Tuesday.

Hearts Actually Can Break

Broken Heart SyndromeI remember paying close attention to the news when Carrie Fisher suffered a medical emergency while on a flight from London to Los Angeles on Friday, December 23.  I, like others my age, was alarmed that she died at 60 years old after suffering a heart attack, three days later.
