Guest post by Carrie Edwards of Colorful Spark. Exactly one week before Christmas Eve, I was able to treat my 6-year-old daughter to a special event, attending Irving Berlin’s White Christmas on stage at the Citi Wang Theatre in Boston.

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: The Musical [Review]

KAP_1980.jpg

Last night, my dad and I slogged through rain and flooded streets to get my kids to see Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: The Musical in Boston. We could have used a sleigh with some reindeer assistance because the traffic was awful and we ended up a few minutes late. Luckily, we zipped into the theat…[more]

Growing up in New England, a “white Christmas” was always an ideal. Sure, it comes with travel headaches, but it’s just so magical. I think that magic is captured in Irving Berlin’s White Christmas. It tells the story of a song-and-dance duo who meet a pair of talented sisters and go through…[more]

#GivingTuesday–Supporting Hyper-Local Non-Profits

My first job out of college (it took me awhile, so this was in my late 20’s) was in a fledgling non-profit. It had grown out of a Harvard student organization and was bringing on its first employees. I believe there were 7 of us that first day in an almost-empty office. Unlike other places...…[more]

Did you know that it’s the 50th anniversary of the Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer television special? There will be a lot of celebrating this year for the famous reindeer and his buddies (I’m particularly excited about the set of U.S. Postal Service stamps), but what better way than to catch the…[more]

2011-09-06-001-011.jpg

  The first day of Kindergarten is nerve-wracking for most parents, but especially when you’re putting your little one onto a bus for the first time. Not only do you have to worry about whether they will make new friends, keep up with their work, and eat lunch every day, but you have to put..…[more]
