You can take the girl outta Jersey…

February 9, 2015

There have been some major things a-brewin’ with the Hollicks as of late, which is why you haven’t heard one peep from us on this blog for months. Busy is not quite the word — we’re overloaded. We’ve gotten quite a few worried emails asking if we were okay, and some of you asked if [...]

Detour: Aladdin and Violet on Broadway

October 7, 2014

Yeah, you saw this coming a million miles away: Max is a show-biz kid. This happens, of course, spending almost three years on the road with his actor Dad.  Watching The Lion King dress rehearsals countless times has made him an afficionado of the show, and last Halloween he even got to be the sinister [...]

The Insta-Home Challenge: Boston

September 24, 2014

Max at the Burroughs Street Tot Lot in Jamaica Plain Cerulean cloud-peppered skies, electric orange shades shimmering in the trees, crisp happy air, and the fine grit on a freshly picked Cortland apple. Fall in New England. This is what life’s about. After our short but sweet stint in urban penthouse-living in Montreal, the sight [...]

Eva-lution: Eva Ling’s Photo Journey

August 18, 2014

What can we tell you about our little rapscallion? After one year of knowing her, we can say with confidence that she: Has zero teeth Gorges on watermelon (like her mama did while pregnant) Walks drunkenly around with much bravado (like her mama did while in college) Gives the best snuggles and hugs, but will [...]

The Insta-Home Challenge: Washington, DC

August 4, 2014

Hot, muggy Washington, DC is our home for nine whole weeks this summer — it’s the longest we’ve been stationed in one spot so far on this Lion King tour, and it’s nice to stay a while.

Constructing a Disney Mini-Villain

May 22, 2014

When Max was 2, he told me he wanted to be The Lion King’s “Scar” for Halloween. Not just a sinister lion from the movie — no, that would be too easy. He wanted the Broadway version of Scar, “just like your costume, Dada.” Uhhhhh. Okay.  Of course, he told me this about 1 week [...]

The Insta-Home Challenge: Seattle, WA

April 24, 2014

We doggone hit the weather lottery this past winter, and it didn’t stop once we left Hawaii. March came in like a lamb, out like a lamb, in sunny Seattle. Yes, you heard right. Sunny. How lucky we were, in so many ways… There was barely any rain, by Pacific Northwest standards (maybe a little [...]

The Insta-Home Challenge: Los Angeles

November 27, 2013

Jack Kerouac once said that “LA is a jungle,” but since we’ve moved into Studio City, LA’s been more like a nicely manicured topiary in the San Fernando Valley. Oh man, we’ve become soooo LA. Of all  the sprawling LA ‘hoods, we chose Studio City because we wanted to be a stone’s throw from our [...]
