Welcome to Sweet Melissa! I am Melissa and that’s Shane, my husband.
I’m so glad you’re here to take this journey with me! I am a Jersey girl with many passions. I love all things DIY and crafts, traveling, cooking, reading, writing and the list goes on.
I love to share my life experiences, whether it be something as small as what I had for dinner last night or something as big as buying a house and everything else that falls outside and in-between. I am family oriented – my family is EVERYTHING to me. My husband and I both come from large extended families and there is always something to celebrate or someone to hang out with. I am also madly in love with my dog, Rocco.
I know I am his mom but I believe he is the cutest little fur ball EVER. He has the sweetest and funniest disposition. I will probably write about him or post pictures of him way too much, so I apologize in advance for that. Here’s another.
Okay, but seriously…
I can’t define myself in one word. I am a pretty well rounded individual as I grew up playing sports and going to the gym, doing crafts, studying hard in school, joining different clubs and hanging out with friends. On the contrary to all of those things, I am actually a pretty shy person. I guess you could call me the “athletic popular artsy nerd” or the “shy but energetic girl”. Either way, I’ve always been best at getting my thoughts and feelings out through writing. It is the easiest way to express myself.
I went to college in the northeast where I met this guy.
Meet Shane – the love of my life. I don’t know where I’d be without him (I also don’t know where he would be without me!). He is supportive yet puts me in my place when needed (sometimes I go a little overboard with my projects). Shane got me through some hard times after college. Being a part of “the real world” was a difficult transition for both of us in different ways. But I can truly say I am married to my best friend and my college sweetheart.
I have many of my own favorite blogs that inspired me to finally start my own. I am totally new at this and appreciate your patience and support for following me through this journey called life. I must admit that in writing this blog I am being a little selfish. It is a way for me to put my thoughts and ideas into words and to keep a diary for myself. But it is also very much for YOU! My hope is to provide entertainment, inspiration and relatable experiences.
I am so happy you are here. Really.
Now let’s start this thang!
(Okay, sorry, that was a little extreme.)
