I've never believed that an unpleasant moment equates to a bad day.  I'm characteristically two seconds from hype mode at any given time and cherish little things that produce big smiles. New experiences excite me, kind faces and helping others brings peace to my soul. While I'm certainly no stranger to the struggle, there are times I find [...]

Snacking With EatPakd!

By | 2017-03-08T21:58:52+00:00 March 8th, 2017|Event, Sponsored|

As a kid, snack time was pretty much the highlight of my day. My Grammy and I would often fill our days cold mack chillin', watching The Price Is Right, enjoying some vanilla wafers and coffee. Well, she had coffee and I usually had a glass of Tang. Back then I had dreams of growing [...]

HEY YOU GUUUUYS!!!!!!!!!  I am soaring with energy and feeling #BLESSED! The lovely and amazing folks behind the Mid-America Restaurant Expo landed me an interview with the one and only Richard Blais this evening. He is spectacular - cool, calm, engaging, and patient!

Suit Up For The Naked Series

By | 2017-01-15T18:00:33+00:00 January 15th, 2017|Event|

One of my favorite surprises of being adult Robin is the variation in my music interests. I've bid a ton farewell to the time of me yelling "MAKE EM SAY UHHH, NUH NAH NAH NAH" while cruising down Main St on Saturday night. These days, I'm quite content to listen to Bach while looping 270 during [...]

Jumping Fences

By | 2017-01-06T04:02:35+00:00 January 6th, 2017|Dining|

I'm a creature of habit. I love shopping at Costco and I'm on first name basis with the FedEx drivers because of all my Amazon Prime purchases. I also love exploring the city {shocker} and checking out neighborhoods I'm not quite familiar with. My most recent adventure took me to the corner of Summit and [...]

Sipping With The Columbus Barrel Co.

By | 2017-02-07T20:52:27+00:00 December 14th, 2016|Business|

In front of me was one of the prettiest things I'd ever seen. Thick, brown, rough yet sturdy, its presence filled the room with power and the most wondrous oak-y smell. I was enamored, spellbound. Bourbon were officially my thang, inside and out. Ever since the day in which my eyes fell upon the vessels that protect [...]

Moving On Up!

By | 2017-02-07T20:56:17+00:00 November 6th, 2016|Brainstorm|

The year was 2000. My busted up Dodge Neon was on it's last legs of life, crawling down the street at a steady 7MPH. I yanked the steering wheel to the right with all my might, sheer determination and fear driving me, to get the car into the Hamilton Big Ford Country parking lot. 7 [...]

You Should Sit This One Out

By | 2016-10-03T12:30:00+00:00 October 3rd, 2016|Event|

"Robin. Maybe you should just sit this one out." These words have been tattooed on the inside of my brain and have affected physical activity decisions for most of my life. Growing up I was an overweight, adorable, hyperactive child with asthma. For some this may not seem like a big deal, but it [...]

Exploring New Albany: FireFly American Bistro

By | 2017-02-07T20:53:49+00:00 September 19th, 2016|Dining|

I can clearly recall the day I was chatting with my sci-fi friends as they raved on and on about FireFly, a new show that was “all that.” Sad to say but at that time I didn’t listen to them, and much to their chagrin the show was cancelled after one season. Fast forward several years [...]
