I'm Melissa, a wife and SAHM to two gorgeous little girls. Peanut is 5 and Pumpkin is 4. The girls, Doc and I live in a cozy little house on Lake Erie. We love the water and the gorgeous sunsets. I'm new to blogging, so this will be my first UBP. Generally, I just blog about whatever it is I'm doing. I love to read, so you'll see plenty of book reviews as time goes on. As a SAHM, I also talk about my kids - a lot! Other than that, I'm trying to find my way. I think I might want to go back to work when both girls are in school. The problem is that I don't know what I want to do. I'm hoping that blogging about life in general will help lead me to wherever it is I'm supposed to be after this. One thing I'm pretty certain of, is that I'm not meant to be a monetized blogger. While I love to write, I don't write well. Writing here is just a way for me to think out loud. So, I will apologize for any grammatical and/or spelling errors you encounter during your visit. Thanks for stopping by!
This video cracks me up. For some reason I thought I'd be cooler online too, but I'm not. I'm still just me. :o)

- Since it is obvious I need a new blog design I would also be happy with one of the design packages that work with what I have. Sadly, knowing nothing about blog design I have no idea what I really need or can use.
