It’s all about hand-held bags. They may life easy, keep those arms and shoulders from hurting, and can be flung on the wrist like an over-sized dangling bracelet.

I just received a thank-you card from my cousin Maddie in the mail for her high school graduation gift. She told me I had to write about the wristlet I got her, so here I am.
