I have a friend like that. My friend Stacy Snyder, the no-BS mama behind the awesome parenting blog, Parent Unplugged, makes me want to be a braver version of myself. When I see her face life head-on, she makes me want to try new things, too.
On my road to living life more bravely, I participated in a live storytelling event at Martyrs' in Chicago. This is an incredible music club (and I have been to a whole lot of music venues). They book awesome acts, have a great stage and a really cool vibe.
Kate Hill, one of the owners of Martyrs' is a creative and community-building force. She and a partner, Dee, have put together a new live storytelling monthly event called Louder Than A Mom. They asked me to tell a story, and I took a deep breath, and worked on one that fit the theme of summer camp or summer vacation.
I thought I'd take a break from food and share it with you.
