Hi there! I’m Melissa and I live on a small lake near Milwaukee, Wisconsin and not too far from Chicago. I’ve been blogging for over 10 years and am enjoying the adventure each and every day. I pride myself on the relationships that my team has built with our audience, as well as the many brands, companies and PR firms that we’ve worked with over the last decade and a half.
Now in my 40’s, I’ve hit a whole new chapter of my life as a wife, mom of two, and a grandmother. I enjoy gardening, crafting, cooking and spending time with my family. I’ve definitely found a love for travel and plan to hit all 50 states within the next 5 years.
My husband and I have been together for 25 years, but just got married in 2012. We’re enjoying this crazy adventure that we call life. Our oldest son, Big Bro is 23 and has such a great personality. He’s never afraid to be himself and is has a heart of gold. Lil Man is 21 going on 70 and is definitely an “old soul”. He’s funny, kind and thoughtful. Our adorable granddaughter is 3, and keeps us on our toes!
Together, my family loves to camp, travel, watch movies, play on the lake and enjoy our home.
