About Melissa

This blog was originally created to document my journey through my hysterectomy in 2019. Documenting that experience helped me to realize that writing it all down was not only therapeutic, but it also paved a pathway for an open and engaged discussion about women’s issues. Men and women alike were joining the conversation and sharing their personal experiences with me. I found this to be incredibly rewarding.

Because of this positive blogging experience, I decided to expand my blog to incorporate all areas of my life. I am a 44 year old woman who is fiercely in love with my amazing wife and the life we’ve created over the last 12 years. I am a swooning and proud Mama to our beautiful two year old daughter. I realize that I have been blessed with this amazing life — the ups and the downs and even the spiraling into precious chaos at times. I want to document it all. Welcome to my blog. I hope you enjoy the journey.

My beautiful and amazing family.
