Don’t get hung up on the spelling of my name. It’s not that complicated, truthfully, so don’t over think it. Just imagine squashing Melissa and Michelle together and what you come up with is “Melle”. Disregard the clever spelling and simply say it as it is: Mel.
My vital statistics include being the mother of three AMAZING boys, the daughter of the most FABULOUS mother on the planet, cultivating the most WONDERFUL friends on earth and having the BEST boyfriend EVER. Let’s be honest, I’m livin’ the dream, right?
Originally from the state of California, (I have to clarify this because there is a California, Missouri, I kid you not) I now reside smack dab in the middle of the Grand Ole US of A. After my divorce eight years ago, the natives stopped demanding to see my passport and granted me citizenship. It was the least they could do after nearly two decades of watching me trying to blend in. Coming to terms with the fact that I am never moving home (to the state of California) I have instead decided to take the Bloom-Where-You-Are-Planted approach to life and make the most of it.
At least that is the plan.
The problem of course being that I’m not much of a planner.
So there you have it.
