26 Reasons You Should Call Your Mom Often (no, not every day!)

Your mom was your first friend. As cliché as it might sound, she’s been there for you through thick and thin — standing behind you with Advil when you first tightened your expander; encouraging your dreams of stardom when you joined that terrible band; holding you as you wept over your first broken heart. She’s your biggest fan and never fails to brighten… Read more →

“Patriot’s Day” Movie (The 2013 Boston Bombing)

We watched the movie “Patriot’s Day” last night and I have to say, reliving our experience of the Boston Bombing was uncomfortable. I guess there is a lot that Jamie and I blocked out, yet we have always known that we cut it close and are very fortunate to be spared from injury. It was crazy seeing in the movie,… Read more →

The Trump Inauguration…Can’t We Just Give The Man A Chance?

Today and tomorrow will undoubtedly be “stay off Facebook, ignore the media kind of days” as it’s going to be nothing but whining, bitching, complaining, debating, blaming, arguing, and casting stones at our new president. The people have made their choice and now it’s time to be respectful and give the man a chance, just like we did with Obama and… Read more →

Everyday Photo Project Take #2 2016

What you’re seeing now is Volume 1 of the 2016 project, which contains the first six months, January 1, 2016 through June 30, 2016. (Written by my husband, Jamison Roberts) Almost 3 years after we started the first EveryDay project (February 19, 2013 to February 19, 2014), and another year after our aborted 2015 attempt, we started again on January 1,… Read more →

#1 of 50. Europe, Long Flights & A Great Life

The trip of a lifetime has come to an end. I’m sitting on the plane from Prague to JFK and ultimately to home; an all day, time-lagging journey. The wind-down from all the awe and excitement has now begun. While to many observers, this trip was just that. A trip. Another vacation for the Robert’s. To us, it was the… Read more →

#2 of 50. How, When & Why I Became a Nurse

“The only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work, and the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking, and don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it.” — Steve Jobs For as long… Read more →

#3 of 50. Halloween Memories

I’ve always loved Halloween.  For one, I was due to be born on Halloween.  (I ended up being a week overdue).  Second, I always loved dressing up as a kid for school…back when it was still allowed!  Lastly, I always wanted to go trick or treating and never did.  We lived in the country and I was told that it… Read more →

#4 of 50. My Ink

I never thought I’d get a tattoo…let alone 3 of them. It all started because my best friend Sheri and I wanted to get them together. We pondered for a good year, but never took the plunge. Little did I know; she would never actually get one after I decided to go ahead and do it (and still hasn’t)! That… Read more →

#5 of 50. I Can See For Miles & Miles

For as long as I can remember, I dreamt of traveling.  As a child, we didn’t venture far.  When I hit high school, I took my first journeys away from home, my first time flying too.  Travel was sparse when the kids were little, but by the time my oldest graduated, I was hell bent on taking them on some… Read more →
