Hi, I'm Melissa and thanks for stopping by my blog! I'm a California born and Ohio bred wife and mom to three children, including twins. This little slice of the internet is where I share stories of my own personal experience with motherhood and all the ups and downs that come with it. I am a counselor by trade but after the birth of my twins I cut back on my work outside of the house significantly and work on a (very) part time basis.
In May of 2010 I married my best friend and coolest guy I know, Tom, in a small lakeside ceremony. Three year later we welcomed our first child, a beautiful spitfire of a girl we named Reese. Fifteen months later we received the biggest surprise of lives and found out we were expecting twins! In June of 2015 we completed our family with the birth of Henry and William, the sweetest and most wild duo you'll ever meet.
My hope is that this blog connects women in all phases and transitions of motherhood, helps expecting and new moms gain information about what they can expect and provides a real life look into what it's like to have three children in less than two years. My initial transition into motherhood was not smooth and I know I would have loved to have another mom to connect to at such a pivotal time in my life. When I was pregnant with the twins I searched high and low for resources and information to help me feel less afraid and more confident, so I hope this blog can be a helpful resource to anyone in those shoes.
