My 2 Cents

About Me

I am Melinda.

I live with my husband, Matt & our daughter, Alayna.  Our house is also home to three furry felines – Roxy, Kramer & Luna & one lovable canine – Zoe.

I refer to myself as a “northern-southerner.”  My husband and I were both born and raised in southeastern Pennsylvania, in a town called Exton.  We lived there until shortly after high school graduation, and then have moved around since.  (We’re not high school sweethearts, but have been together since shortly after I graduated – the year after he did – in 2000.)  We currently live in a moderately sized town in North Carolina called Kernersville.  We are a short distance from the larger cities of Greensboro, High Point and our favorite, Winston-Salem.  Although I love living here now, I will always be a northerner at heart.

I’m an elementary age school teacher.  The upcoming year marks my seventh year teaching.  I have taught fourth grade, but am currently working on the third grade level, which I love!

Our daughter, Alayna, arrived about 9 months ago.  Each and every minute with her has been a joy, and I look forward to watching her learn and grow.

Some of my hobbies include reading, scrapbooking, traveling (although it doesn’t happen often), and pretty much anything crafty.

I have started this blog to share some of my adventures: motherhood, going vegetarian (again ~ sort of), trying to become more green and environmentally friendly, cooking and recipes, and anything else that may pop into my head.

I’m not a great writer.  I never have been, but I’ve always aspired to being one.  This is my outlet.  I hope you enjoy!
