The Nutcracker Ballet at the Macomb Center for the Performing Arts

The Nutcracker Ballet at the Macomb Center for the Performing ArtsBeauty Brite Disclosure
Going to see Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker has been a long time tradition for my family. I’m not sure where it originated, but I have lots of vivid memories of going to see the ballet as a young girl. This tradition carried over to adulthood; my house is decorated with lots of beautiful Nutcracker ornaments and decor. I also have a light-up Nutcracker on my front porch from my childhood. Now, that adoration has transferred to my son, who also loves Nutcrackers. He loves to help pick one out for our home each Christmas.

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links.

It’s been decades since I last watched Care Bears. I grew up in the 80s and 90s where Care Bears, Barbies, Cabbage Patch Kids, My Little Pony, Strawberry Shortcake and many others were popular. At least those were my favorite! My mom didn’t always buy me Barbies, as I was more interested in playing with Cabbage Patch Kids, Care Bears and My Little Pony.
