Don’t you love it when all of your plans come together and the weekend turns out to be a tremendous success? I wanted to do something special for Mr. Mickey because we are celebrating our twelve years of dating anniversary on March 7th. On Saturday, we attended a play, the Barter, stayed at The Martha, and had a superb dinner. The new musical Bright Star opened for the first time since Broadway at the Barter Theatre in Abingdon, Virginia, this month. I am so glad we were able to see this play. It was a splendid performance, and the story was supremely uplifting.
The weather has turned chilly again, but the sky was a vivid blue, and the sun was shining as we made our way to the Saturday afternoon matinee performance. As I have often told you in the past, I dress for the weather, so I was celebrating the sunny skies when I chose to wear the knit Malibu Punch blazer I recently bought at Chico’s. The doorman goodnaturedly teased me that I would never get lost in a crowd.
The silk scarf is one of my all-time favorites. Even when the skies are gray, these colors can lift my spirits. The velvet smoking slippers are by Tommy Hilfiger via Belk. The tights are from White House|Black Market. (It was too cold to go without socks.) The black jeans are by NYDJ, and they are the Sheri Style. The white tank and the bright blazer are both from Chico’s.
While we were waiting in the lobby, these beautiful ladies came up to tell me they follow the blog. We visited like old friends for the rest of the day since they were seated in front of us. I was sad when it was time for us to go our separate ways. The best part of being a blogger is connecting with delightful people who share a passion for living life to the fullest and looking our best while we enjoy each day with a sense of optimism and laughter.
Inside the Martha is a small boutique called The Little Shop. I always look forward to seeing what fun things they have to offer. Soon, it was time to go downstairs to Sister’s American Grill for dinner. Daniel is their new chef, and he does an absolutely fabulous job! If you have not been there for a while, give them another try. We are already looking forward to the next play to stay at the Martha and enjoy another excellent dinner at Sister’s.
Happy Anniversary Mr. Mickey! Thank you for making these past twelve years the happiest of my life.
