Hey there! Thanks for stopping by!
I’m Melissa… Texas girl, Jesus follower, mom to girls.
I started this blog in 2007 to document a TINY little remodeling project, a crumbling 1928 colonial in our city’s historic district, (which, as it turns out wasn’t a tiny project at all…) but this blog somehow morphed into the story of us.
Meet Katie, my beautiful firstborn. She’s my artistic child who is a true picture of ‘the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit.’
Katie loves animals, volleyball, and monograms. She’s an animal lover who wants to be a vet, and she’ll be awesome at it since she’s been training from the time she was a toddler.
This is Annie, my big-hearted child who LOVES people. She’s the life of the party and quick-witted and is always saying things that make us laugh.
She also loves singing, dancing, karaoke, and reading, and has turned her bedroom into a classroom where she teaches school every day. Annie has a brain tumor story, but it has an AMAZING happy ending. Feel free to message me if you want to know more about that.
