Category: 50 Years of Reflections

For my 50th birthday, I wanted to write about my favorite 50 memories. I tried to post one each day or 50 days, however, we took a 3-week trip to Europe and I was unable to keep up with my writing; good reason! I played catch-up when we got back, and that said, I had a list of all the memories I planned to write about, I just wasn’t able to do them in the order that I planned.

A Recap of My Unforgettable 50th Birthday Year

As I sit here on the eve of my 51st birthday, I feel compelled to reflect and recap this past year of changes, experiences, discoveries, adventures, and challenges.  Turning 50 and the months that followed, was epic and not to mention, overwhelming. To kick off my “50th birthday”, Jamison and I started with running, ok, so it wasn’t really running,… Read more →

My Reality TV Stint: One Born Every Minute

7 years ago, many of my coworkers & myself had our shot at being on national television; not once, but for a series!  The producers (from The Office & Biggest Loser to name a few) spent several months at our hospital (Riverside Methodist), for 2 seasons back to back, filming the reality TV show “One Born Every Minute”.

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 →

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 →

Random High School Memories

High school was a crazy time.  I really never did find my place or anything that I was good at, but I certainly didn’t give up.  I ran track my freshman year, played volleyball my freshman and I think sophomore years, which conflicted with marching band, so I gave it up due to a very militant band director who made… Read more →
