The 2016 Show!

by stephaniesprenger on May 9, 2016

On Saturday, April 30th, the 4th annual Listen To Your Mother Boulder show took place at Unity of Boulder. We are still floating from the incredible experience; there really is nothing like the special brand of magic that belongs to Listen To Your Mother Shows.

The house was packed, the cast all read more beautifully and courageously than ever before, and the audience blew our minds with their enthusiasm, energy, and support. It was an evening that we will all remember forever. We are so grateful to our fantastic photographer and local sponsor Liv of Tiny Dragon Photography. Here are some of the beautiful moments she captured that night.

The show itself went beautifully; the audience (and cast) laughed and cried and cheered on every single person who bravely stood up to read her story. Have we mentioned yet how proud we are of this amazingly talented cast?

We can’t thank our incredible local sponsors enough for making our show possible. Our megaphone level sponsors, The Joy Collective the The Organic Dish were at the show to support us, and we are so grateful both for their attendance that night and their sponsorship this year. And congrats to the winners of our two giveaways, JOY and Organic Dish, Amber and Stefanie! We are honored to have partnered with local businesses that bring so much to the community of Boulder. Our microphone level sponsors, Memories to Digital and Missy J’s were also at the show that evening and we so appreciate their support this year (and we’ve fallen in love with their businesses as well!). We really did have a fantastic group of local sponsors this year:

the Joy Collective, the Organic Dish, Memories to Digital, Missy J’s Oh Yes You Candy, ABC Gym for Kids, JJ Wells Clothing, Mountain Kids Gymnastics, Bundle Cloth Diaper Service and Baby Shop, Shredder Urban Ski and Snowboard Park, Postpartum Wellness Center of BoulderBirth Center of Boulder, J Lounge Spa, Tiny Dragon Photography, Brighter Day Floral Design, Ladder Creative, and Swoon Jewelry.
The videos will be live on the Listen To Your Mother YouTube Channel this summer, so if you missed the show, you’ll have the opportunity to watch it in a few months. We personally cannot wait to relive the magic of our show this year and plan to watch the videos over and over and over . . .

Celebrating Local Sponsor Missy J’s Snacks & Treats

April 25, 2016

I have a huge sweet tooth problem. I love candy and sweets, particularly chocolate, and I never do well when I try to deprive myself of treats. It’s always such a hard balance between indulging in sweets and trying to stay healthy! Colorado, especially Boulder, is known for being a health-conscious community, and we are lucky to have many healthier options in terms of dining and grocery shopping close by. Our fantastic local sponsor, Missy J’s Snacks & Treats, provides a service that is very much needed in our community: a healthier option for the sweet snacks so many of us crave. Here’s what founder Jodi Feinhor-Dennis has to say about her business: Our mission is to provide “better for you” snacks + treats that, first and foremost taste divine, are free from unhealthy ingredients like white processed sugar, dairy, caffeine, are lower glycemic and non gmo. We pack our treats with love, […]

Celebrating Local Sponsor Memories to Digital

April 18, 2016

So, do you all have some super-creative, meaningful, unique Mother’s Day gift ideas? I didn’t think so. It’s hard to come up with special, clever gifts for our moms year after year (Christmas . . . her birthday . . . Mother’s Day) even though we really want to give them something they’ll actually appreciate or, even better, truly cherish. I have a great idea this year, although it’s not for my mom, it’s for my grandma. She’s turning 94 (!) this May and I have a box of old slides my grandpa took decades and decades ago. They’d been sitting in a box in her basement for years, and now they’ve been sitting in mine for the past 4-5 years. I have no idea how many years (or decades) it’s been since she’s seen them, and I’ve never seen them. I’ve been meaning to get them digitized ever since I took them […]
