About Me

~Our engagement photo taken by Christian Cruz~

Hello and Welcome!
My name is Melinda and still consider myself new to the blog world. It is something I enjoy doing as a hobby, especially while my husband is at school and I’m bored at home. 🙂
I recently had my first baby and am enjoying every day as a new stay-at-home-mom. It is a dream come true! Ever since I figured out being a mom was my ultimate calling in life, I’ve dreamed of this moment and it has finally become a reality. For that, I am eternally grateful!
In high school (that’s right..we are high school sweethearts!), I met the love of my life (see photo above). For 10 years we dated and eventually (more like, finally!) got married in August of 2010. It was the best day and happiest day of my life. See pictures here! My husband and I had to get creative with our wedding since we were paying for the majority of it. Also, we didn’t want to go into crazy debt afterwards. Thus began my love for crafting & Pinterest. 
Having our baby was also one of the happiest days of my life, but definitely not the BEST day. Lol. Read my story here and you’ll see why! 
Previously, I worked as an elementary school teacher for 3 years and, before that, a youth & young adult minister at my church. Teaching is one of my true passions in life. 
Other than that, I’m pretty much an open book. I enjoy simple things like staying home watching Netflix, experimenting in the kitchen, thrifting and seeing how many useless/inexpensive things I can buy and make useful, spending time with friends and family, and the outdoors.
I hope to share all my thoughts, passions, and inspirations with you through this blog.

  2. Love the song your sister sang at your wedding. I couldn’t quite catch all the words thou and was wondering if you provide the music and the lyrics if we would maybe be interested in this for my daughters wedding. She is conteplating singing a song to her hubby and this one I think would be perfect. Thanks! I can be reached at jbschu@unitelc.com
