Boulder LTYM; THE SHOW!!!

by Joelle on May 19, 2015

We did it. We began as a group of srangers just a few short months ago and took the stage on Saturday, May 9th as a unit. We laughed together and cried together as we shared our stories in rehearsals, at first tentatively, then more confidently. We laughed together and cried together and held each other up, on Saturday, as we shared our stories with our audiences (twice!), this time with a unique electricity present. And we are so very, very grateful.

We are grateful to our cast. They were brave, they were vulnerable, and they were honest as they shared their stories.

We are grateful to our audiences, who ventured out on a miserable, snowy evening to bear witness to our stories.

We are grateful to the national Listen To Your Mother organization. Without your support and guidance we could never have done it.

We are grateful to our national media sponsors, BlogHer and LUVS whose support made it possible for Listen To Your Mother to have a presence in 39 cities across the United States.

We are also so happy that we were able to support EFAA and thankful to everyone in the audience for their generosity.

And we are grateful to our local sponsors, whose support made our show possible.

Joel Peterson Photography took fabulous pictures during our 7:00 show AND provided videography for the 4:00 show!!! Stay tuned- video of each of the 39 2015 shows, including Boulder’s, will be released on the LTYM You Tube channel this summer.

Walden Hyde provided design services for our print materials.

8 Days a Week printed our posters and postcards

HB HomeStaging created an elegant design for our stage

Pica’s Mexican Taqueria  provided tasty Mexican food for both of our rehearsals AND the show!!! Yay Pica’s!

Spotlight on Local Sponsor Joy Collective and an AMAZING Giveaway!

May 4, 2015

JOY Collective: Pregnancy, Parenting & Family Wellness Center … and a “GIFT OF JOY” Giveaway [$100 value] Joelle and I are so happy to welcome Joy Collective as a local sponsor for Boulder’s Listen To Your Mother Show. Joy Collective supports mamas and families by offering all kinds of wellness services under one roof. We could tell you why they are awesome and how lucky Boulder is to have them as a resource, but instead here are a few words directly from Joy Collective’s co-founders…. The vision for Joy Collective was born from Jenevieve Russell and HeatherLyn Ernst, as they recognized a clear need in the Boulder community for a home away from home-like wellness center for families to be supported all along their path.  Joy is a welcoming, non-judgmental safe space for all kinds of families.  One of our goals is to eliminate the confusion of where to go in Boulder for […]

Spotlight on Local Sponsor: The Birth Center of Boulder

April 27, 2015

We are so pleased to welcome the brand spanking new Birth Center of Boulder as one of our local sponsors. The people there are warm and friendly, and the space is gorgeous and inviting, with natural light, vibrant quilt art, and complimentary herbal tea. The Birth Center is so lovely, I want to give birth in one of their birthing rooms whenever I go there. The place seriously makes me want to have a baby, despite the fact that I am 99.9% sure I’m done having babies and despite the fact that I had a baby recently enough to remember exactly what it feels like and how challenging it is to care for a baby (i.e. some of you may have been worried that my water was going to break on stage last year).  The Birth Center of Boulder fills a large gap in maternity care in our community. Until their doors opened […]

Boulder Cast Spotlight on Carrie Howell, Tracy Ross and Pam Moore!

April 22, 2015

Carrie Howell is an elementary school teacher turned active stay at high-country-home mom.  She embraces every second of the energy, excitement, insanity, sleeplessness, rewards, and love of life with her four beautiful children.  Her perspective on life and motherhood changed forever when she lost her second son, Bryce David, unexpectedly in October of 2010.  Her journey through grief has challenged her to accept her new normal.  As she continues to move through her grief to gratitude journey, she has felt empowered by her son to support others and advocate for parents and their children.  She is a member on the advisory board of the Grief Support Network in Boulder, where she is committed to giving input for services that will provide guidance to other bereaved parents and family members.  Carrie feels especially passionate about helping siblings through their grief since witnessing her oldest son experience his own grief after losing his little brother.  Carrie […]
