Expressing Motherhood Boston Is Tonight. Also, San Francisco Promo, 2 for 1

I can’t tell you how much it has made my week to see photos from the Boston Expressing Motherhood rehearsal rolling in via social networks.


I have never not been at a rehearsal or show but I can tell by the smiling faces the women are having a great time and I know Local Producer and ExMo Alum Robin Maxfield will be a wonderful leader.

Tickets are still available for the show. Don’t miss out on something special.

This week Expressing Motherhood announced on Facebook that we would have a 2 for the price of 1 promo for our upcoming San Francisco show. This will go into effect beginning this Monday afternoon.


Please use the promo code BOGOexmoshow and you will receive 2 tickets for the price of 1!

It is hot here in Los Angeles, I’ve been spending most of my time trying to help out my good friend who lost her husband, a beloved friend of our families. I’ve been bonding with my old neighbors and despite this atrocious heat I’m making soup and trying not to lose my sanity because Fall in LA will make you do that.


The glimmer of excitement and happiness I felt in my kitchen this afternoon when I saw part of the Boston cast at the rehearsal gave me a burst of joy.

Break a leg Boston cast!


To All The Moms and Grandmas Running Around Today

This week I have been overwhelmed with the feeling that I am the woman in charge of putting on our Christmas.

Albeit for a very small group, but none the less, even if I plan on picking up a pre-made meal from Whole Foods I still have to plan it.

All of the wrapping, cooking that goes on this week. A lot of it by the matriarchs in our families. Today as I bundled myself up trying to feel better from a cold I thought, no wonder my mom so frequently got sick at Christmas!

I openend our newly acquired piano bench, a hand me down from my parents divorce, and in it was a piece of paper with my grandma’s handwriting.

She had listed a Christmas list of songs to play. She could not see well and she never had formal training. You merely had to hum a tune and she could play it.

Music and Food.

That’s what I associate with her visits during the holidays. And peace.

A peace would descend over my house while she visited.

I hope your holidays are nice. I hope you don’t stress yourself out too much over the details. And I hope they are filled with music, food and good company.

To all you grandmas and moms out there doing your best to provide warmth for your family, my hat goes off to you.
