About Me

"One can never consent to creep when one feels an impulse to soar."
- Helen Keller

Hi! I'm Melissa - wife to Shawn and mama to Noah, Isaiah, and baby Elijah. We live in beautiful Monterey, California. This blog is the chronicle of our family's adventures. Welcome!

In case you'd like to know more, here's a list of some of the things I like (in no particular order):

  • Motherhood
  • Books, books, and more books
  • Strong women
  • Thoughtful men
  • Beach days
  • Taking photos
  • Writing words
  • Thrifting
  • Becoming a grown up
  • Acting like a big kid
  • And lots and lots more, but that's a start...
