Why, hello! 

my name is mel, short for melissa. i am a stay-at-home mama of two, one boy (14), one girl (5). wife of computer programming genius from maine. dog owner of one. fish killer of many. 

i have old fashioned values. however, my oven is often neglected. i am fiercely loyal to those who reciprocate. learner of many mistakes. forgiven. i desire to blog daily, but do not. photography and collecting quotes brings me joy. thrifting makes me smile. the beach is my sanctuary. i am a lip gloss hoarder, truly. i enjoy the smell of paper. bees scare me but i love to collect them. i am happiest when i am busy with my hands and making lists. 

thanks for stopping by! -xoox
