I'm Melanie- a counselor turned stay-at-home mama blogging about my crazy life. I love Jesus and chocolate and coffee and cheesecake. I not-so-secretly want to live in Stars Hollow or become an a cappella singer on Pitch Perfect. Fall is my most wonderful time of the year, and I am crazy about candles. I love to quilt and read Liane Moriarty mysteries and dream about Jane Austen novels.
Ben is the real engineer. He does all the manly projects around our house plus loves his crazy family. We got married in December of 2010.
Eli is four. He has enough energy for three of me, and talks non-stop from the moment he gets up until the time he goes to bed. He loves outer space, cars, books, and preschool.
Tessa rounds out our gang. She will be two in December and is already full of feisty adorableness. She talks, walks, and breathes whatever Eli is doing. She also gives awesome hugs and says "Ok!" when you tell her you love her.
