While Carolyn wasÂ in Tennessee supporting Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Memphis, she had the opportunity to dine with Leigh Anne and Collins Tuohy.Â The TuohyÂ family was the inspiration behindÂ the hit movie ‘The Blindside’.Â Leigh Anne had fallen in love with Alex and Ani while she was shopping on Saks.com and came upon our expandable wire bangles.
Leigh Anne was getting compliments on her bangles every timeÂ she wore them, and CollinsÂ had started wearing them as well.Â They both became such huge fans ofÂ Alex and Ani, they contactedÂ us and as it turned out Carolyn had a trip already Â planned to Tennessee!
They met last night for dinner and automatically hit it off!Â CarolynÂ hadÂ said, “Meeting with Leigh Anne was so refreshing…being around a woman who is so comfortable in who she is and has no limits or boundaries around her truly inspired me.Â She exemplifies the word empowerment.”
We are all fans of the Tuohy family and think they are an inspiration for all of us.Â All of us at Alex and AniÂ wishÂ ’The Blindside’Â and SandraÂ Bullock good luck this Sunday at theÂ Oscars. Â Check back later for pictures of Carolyn with Leigh Anne and Collins…
