Happiness at Ziegfeld Theater

The Ziegfeld Theater’s Production of You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown was delightful! As each character danced, sang, and bantered I couldn’t help but smile. I wore a stupid grin throughout the play as Sally, Schroeder, Linus, Snoopy, Lucy, and Charlie Brown played out their ridiculous antics. Children were delighted by the play as well as adults. A couple kids I talked to were huge fans of Lucy and Sally, played by Morgan Parry and...

The setting of the play is the living room of four-year old...

Indie Ogden Visits the Tulip Festival + A giveaway!

On a bright April day I took a well-worth-it drive South to Thanksgiving Point’s 55-acre gardens. The Tulip Festival awaited me on its opening day! I couldn’t have been a happier girl; camera in hand and Spring in the air. The Tulip Festival is so unique because it displays more than 250,000 tulips! But it’s not just a walk through a garden. I also enjoyed the sights of their waterfall, explored the vendor booths, enjoyed a frappe...
