Hello all and welcome!

My name is Melissa and I’ve decided to let some of the thoughts that meander constantly in my mind out into the world via blog.  Hey–everyone else is doing it! LOL

I’m a 30-something Vegetarian, Nature Lover, Animal Lover, Book Lover, Blogger & Reviewer. I live with my husband and kitty Piper. I work 9-5 at a job I don’t hate to pay the bills–but can’t wait for evening and weekends to hang out with my family and friends, fiance, and cat.  I also love to get out, enjoy, and photograph the beauty of our natural world every chance I get.  I was pretty green before it was cool to be so and am trying to improve myself every day.  I’m also a voracious reader…and love to curl up with a cup of tea, my cat and almost anything printed that I can lay my hands upon.

I’m striving this year to find more balance…to find a better me…and I feel that I can do so not simply by being introspective…but also by putting it all (well ok…some of it) out there on the clothesline for you all to see.  We all make each other better people. Life is about community.   Welcome to mine.

    Hi Melissa…I hope to take some time this weekend to read through your blog…I see that we are both feline fanciers. I have 3 cats and a dog…and some strays. 🙂

    Thanks for all the encouraging comments on my blog. It means a lot to know there is someone out there that cares (for some reason).

  10. Thank you so much for subscribing to my blog. I can’t wait for you to complete your list so I can read it 🙂 I am now following you too! I love your posts.. I will definitely be back for more.

    • Thanks:) It’s definitely going on my “too long as it is” to do list to write out a Bucket (To Do) list…wow…I am so lame! lol Seriously though…I find when I put things in writing I am so much more proactive about making them happen!

  13. Hi melissa – Can I repost your Banned Books blog on my Write Connexion blog http://writeconnexion.wordpress.com/ ? I have 2 blogs and when I try to press it, it defaults to my personal blog (which you’re subscribed to). That’s fine, but I’d also like to put it on my writers blog, and I wanted to ask you first.
