Listen To Your Mother. No, Really. April 27 in Orange County [Ticket Giveaway!]

Next Sunday, the national show Listen To Your Mother will happen in Orange County (Santa Ana). It is worth a day trip for this, my friends, I promise you. In addition to talent from OC and San Diego, the cast features several Los Angeles area moms including Agoura Hills’ own Julie Gardner!

“The mission of each LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER production is to take the audience on a well-crafted journey that celebrates and validates mothering through giving voice to motherhood–in all of its complexity, diversity, and humor.

LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER aims to support motherhood creatively through artistic expression, and also financially–through contributions to non-profit organizations supporting families in need.”

Watching and listening to women standing in front of an audience, reading their original, curated work regarding motherhood, is a moving and powerful experience. I’ve seen several such performances, I can guarantee you that you will have a wonderful time.

Listen To Your Mother
April 27, 4:00 PM
The Ebell Club
625 French Street
Santa Ana, CA 92701

California Strawberry Festival Ticket Giveaway

Every so often I can hook a sister (or brother) up.  This is one of those times.  I hope you like strawberries.

The 29th Annual California Strawberry Festival is happening at Strawberry Meadows of College Park in Oxnard on May 19 and 20.  For those two days, strawberries will be celebrated, presented, and served in every way you can possibly imagine.  There will be cooking demos, arts and crafts booths, a kid zone, contests and more.

The festival is open 10:30 AM to 6:00 PM both days. Tickets cost $5-12 and parking on site is $10, but they are running free shuttles from a remote parking lot.

I am giving away a four-pack of tickets right here (does not include parking).
