Hi, my name is Melanie. I am Florida grown but currently an Ohio transplant. Yes, I am still not 100% sure how that happened. However, with the exception of winter I really love being a buckeye. I try to get home as much as possible and there is nothing better than Old Bay shrimp overlooking the ocean in my favorite Florida town of St. Augustine. Well, unless of course it’s eating a Dole Whip at Disney surrounded by pixie dust and magic.
I started blogging in May of 2009 as a way to feed my perpetual addiction to research and online learning. I tend to become the “expert” on all kinds of things and my friends start telling their friends who start asking me about stuff, so why not create my own space for oversharing.
In my everyday life, I am a certified sign language interpreter. I have a background in Deaf Education and a Masters in Interpretation. I have worked in all types of venues and really love what I do.
The hubs and I have been married for over 10 years. We have 4 amazing, talented and awesome children. Three from my womb and one from across the ocean. You can read more about our infertility, loss and adoption stories here on the blog.
I hope my postings and praises bring a bit of joy into your everyday life.
