I'm doing a piece that even Sweet Husband hasn't read, and it's got me completely [insert big ball of complicated emotions].
It's weird, because it's not like I'm not used to getting up in front of people and talking about hard stuff. And it's not like I don't share personal stuff on this blog.

As noted in the handy photo above, the show is this Sunday at 3 pm at Liberty Hall in Lawrence. Tickets are $15 in advance [you can get them at the Liberty Hall box office or by emailing email@example.com] or $18 on the day. [If you go to the box office, you'll need cash but there's an ATM nearby.]
Bring your mama and make it an early Mother's Day date!
