Sincerely, Barack Obama…

I think I have posted this letter from the White House once before, but it seemed extra fitting today of all days.  As with the letter I wrote about earlier this week, this is another piece of mail that I will always treasure.  No political rants here…just thankful for this letter…and thankful for the message.  “We wish you a long and happy life filled with chances to learn, ideas to explore, people to love, and dreams to fulfill.” Thank you.

Vanessa Trien has been performing music for kids and families since 2005, many of those years in collaboration with her lively folk/roots/pop band, the Jumping Monkeys.  She has three Parents’ Choice award-winning CDs for kids and families and is currently working on her fourth album, due out this winter.  Vanessa packs concert halls, preschool fundraisers and outdoor venues with dancing kids and families.

She is known for her highly interactive shows, featuring plenty of group singing and movement.  One of her most requested songs, “Tickle Monster” has families sneaking around on tip toe and then on queue, all start tickling each other!

In addition to performing, Vanessa teaches as an early childhood music specialist in preschool and pre-K classrooms in Brookline and has also taught parent and child group Music Together classes for ten years. Originally from New York City.

Vanessa moved to Boston in the nineties to attend Harvard’s Graduate School for Education and has stayed ever since, first diving into the Cambridge folk music scene and festival production and then eventually jumping with her whole heart into the wild and wonderful world of children’s music!

Pier 23 To Open Soon At Former LaRosas/AJs On The Harbor Site 23 East Main St

Quick Little Getaway

We wanted a quick night in the city with friends after the Christmas crazies but before the actual New Year’s Eve mayhem, so I spent all of about ten minutes looking for a hotel for a Friday night in an area of Boston that has some restaurants and bars that we like to go to.

We landed at the Residence Inn by Marriott in the Seaport on Congress Street.  Super inexpensive, comfortable, spacious, industrial, and funky.  With a full kitchen, a seating area, and a large bedroom, we were able to sit for drinks with friends in our room before actually heading out for the night.  With tons of restaurants/bars within walking distance, we didn’t even bother to hop in a taxi during the course of the evening.

If you’re overdue for a quick little getaway, can’t go far, and want it to be easy…I highly recommend it.
