Hello, friends! My name is Melissa Stevenson and I hope that you enjoy your time on my blog.
I want to take a moment and tell you a little about myself. I’m married (31 years and counting) to a wonderful man and a mother to an awesome daughter. I grew up in a family of 4 children (middle child – can I get a shout out!!!!) so you can imagine what our dinner table was like – 6 people around the table all trying to get a word in…but you know what? I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Growing up I moved a lot (3 different high schools in the same year- YIKES). No regrets because I feel that it made me who I am today. My father always told me that I was wise beyond my years. Yes, I was a daddy’s girl, right up to the end. I lost him 10 years ago – wow, I can’t believe that it’s been that long. My mother was a wonderful role model, in that she stayed home with the children and made a wonderful home filled with great meals, attention, and love. Still amazing how my mom was able to feed and put clothes on our backs with only one salary. My hero!
Well, so why did I decide to start a blog? Well, good question. I decided that between me growing up in a big family, having a family of my own and just the desire to share and gather information, well that’s why I’m here.
If there is something in particular that you want me to blog about – shout out to me. I hope you enjoy your time here and remember that you are awesome.
