It’s restocking time in casa de Imig, both literally and metaphorically. After wrapping an indescribably soulful and joy-filled 41-city LTYM season and 7th annual Madison show, I need to grocery-grab, post-production paper-push, pile-sort, organize, houseclean, parent, and especially reconnect with family and friends.

As I anticipate my favorite month of the year–June (also known as La Mes de Watch Ann Finally Collapse)–I must call on my last resolve to sign all the permission slips, deal with the camp forms, attend/chaperone End Of The Year Everything, and most importantly not pull a muscle trying to barrel the soccer ball across the field in the annual end of soccer parents vs. kids game. WATCH OUT ANKLE-BITERS! HERE I COME WITH MY CHILD-SIZED SHIN GUARDS AND ELDERLY GAIT.

But first–before La Mes de Watch Ann Finally Collapse–please join me at DreamBank Madison!

Next Thursday evening May 26th American Family DreamBank gives you a chance to hear some LTYM stories. Did you miss our Mother’s Day show here in Madison? Even if you attended the Madison show, this will be a different event with different stories, plus a great discussion about how telling stories can change your life and help you realize your dreams. Darcy (right) Takeyla (center) and I will re-stock some stories from our Madison alumni of previous seasons (the very talented Oroki Rice, Jennifer Rosen Heinz, and Lily Bragge) to fortify this intimate and powerful storytelling conversation next week. The event is free, but space is limited and filling up–so reserve yours today!

On Friday night I sat among colleagues and friends in Dana Point, California, as a nominee at the 3rd Iris Awards ceremony at Mom 2.0 Summit.

This post is sponsored by Luvs as part of their #ShareTheLuv campaign When Husband and I set our wedding date for May 30th, my boss at the time, Ellen,  joked "You didn't plan that very well, Ann.

COOL STUFF GOING ON!!

Last night I dreamed I went to France without any Francs. Maybe this dream stems from the fact that I rarely have cash money in my wallet. Since my kids don't accept debit cards yet for allowance, they are more than a little accustomed to IOUs aka broken promises. Pretty sure you can't pay for… Read More
