Friday night was Northwest Indiana's third annual Listen To Your Mother show and I was backstage... 2,300 miles away at Ivy's ballet recital.

It was surreal. There was a curtain, and lights, and applause, and in so many ways it all felt so right and complete. I knew I was where I was supposed to be.

Love presented a new cast with new stories to a full house. My mom was in the audience and then woke up early the next morning to fly here. She brought me the program and I feel a different kind of proud, I am not sure what it is. I am in awe, and just so thankful it continues on.

We are nearing the close of all twenty-four shows this season (p.s. see us on NBC Nightly News!) and I've already got my heart hoping to set sail a Listen To Your Mother here by the ocean someday, when the time is right.

Today my belly is full of a good Mother's Day. To have all my children and my mom here, I want for absolutely nothing more.


  1. Beautiful!

    LTYM Twin Cities was amazing-I brought my dear friend and she had no idea what to expect...we were laughing and crying.

    Wanted so bad to drive Iowa this morning to hear Michelle and Brook...I was needed here.

    Excited for next year here...maybe I will even consider auditioning, if the time is right.

    So glad you could be with your mom this weekend.

    Be Well,

  2. love that picture, and happy mothers day :-)

  3. Someday I will at least see a show. Just the feelings I get from all my friends is so amazing. You are amazing for getting it off the ground. Happy Mother's Day!!

    1. My aunt is hoping for a Lake Charles or Baton Rouge show!


  4. Awesome picture. So happy for you that your mom was able to join you for your first Mother's Day away!

    1. It was such a special Mother's Day at the Ocean and getting to experience a magical day. Hard to put into words, spending it with my daughter..

  5. I adore this picture. I saw it on Facebook and thought, that is the exact view I had for our entire LTYM show. Minus the adorable ballerinas ;-)

  6. Oh my heavens, I don't know how you stand it all! Such beauty and love.


  7. I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is required to get setup? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a
    pretty penny? I'm not very internet smart so I'm not 100% sure.
    Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.

  8. It is just like the most trusted wedding planner living next
    door to you. Place a tea light candle in the hole and light just
    before your guests arrive. Look for a hardback book
    of the appropriate size or select a trio of books.

    if you knew where I could find a captcha plugin for my comment form?

    Thanks a lot!
