House TalkN is a fun lookiloo at houses, houses, houses. It will answer pressing questions like, "When folks build a McMansion on a small lot, what are they compensating for?" or "Was the real estate agent drunk when they staged this house?" or "Why don't the Smiths' ever leave their drapes open when I am on a harmless walk-by?"

Listen To Your Mother, 2014

Even though I now live in Illinois, I will always be an Indiana girl at heart. I was so excited to join the Listen To Your Mother cast in Indianapolis this year.
I didn't know one single person on the cast beforehand. The beauty of the LTYM show is finding the common threads that connect us to each other. By curtain call, I felt like I had found new friends that shared the stage and new connections with the people who filled the theater seats to hear our stories. 
Mike Washington Photography captured these shots of our day…
These women? These women knocked my socks off with their humor, candor, wit and generosity.
Hey, lookiloo! I shed my yoga pants and baseball cap for big girl clothes!

The walk to the microphone can be the longest walk ever…gulp.
Knowing that my mother and sister were in the audience calmed my nerves. If no one else laughed, I knew I could count on them to throw me a pity laugh. 
During my reading, I heard the unmistakable laugh of an old friend from high school. I was so happy to see that Mike captured this shot of my friend. My cup runneth over.

The LTYM 2014 videos will be released this summer. Until then, you can check out previous clips HERE
Thank you to everyone who brought LTYM shows to life and thank you to everyone who sat in the audience- nodding and smiling your support at us.
