Like a Virgin

I’m 41 years old, and believe it or not I recently lost my virginity – and in front of EVERYONE.  Don’t worry, this virginity has nothing to do with my girl parts (I’ll save those details for another time and place).  This time, for the first time ever, I spoke on stage to a paying audience!  My whole life people have been telling me I should be on stage…and although I agreed with them, it was too scary or too impractical or both.  So I went and studied the sciences and have been making a living in the corporate world ever since.

All of that recently changed when I took a step into the unknown and onto the stage of Expressing Motherhood, popping my performance cherry once and for all!  Granted, for those of you that know me know that I’ve kind of been on stage my whole life, but now it’s official.

For those of you who weren’t able to see the show, I have my story here for your viewing pleasure.  I’m so grateful for the experience and to meet such an amazing group of women, although not so thrilled with that dress I was wearing!  Sigh.


Putting it “Out There”

It took me 41 years, but I finally got the guts to put my creative self out into the world, Goddess help me.  I submitted a little ditty I wrote to Expressing Motherhood and HOLY BALLS THEY ACTUALLY PICKED ME!  I’ll be performing for 6 shows over 2 weekends for the first time ever! I’m so excited to check this off my bucket list, and am daydreaming about where it could possibly take me.  If you want tickets to see the show you can find them here.  Here’s to the butterflies that come from trying something for the first time, wish me luck!
