In case anyone is stumbling across our blog that doesn't know us, I'll get you caught up on our story.
My name is Melissa and I am a twenty-something stay-at-home mom to my baby man, John Charles otherwise known as JC. I became a stay-at-home mom when JC was born on June 1st, 2010. When I'm not spending time with JC, I also enjoy knitting which as been a hobby of mine since November 2006. I love knitting because it allows me to create something with my hands that is beautiful and useful. Unfortunately, I spend more time thinking about knitting than actually knitting lately. It's a very delicate balance between child rearing, housework, sleep and knitting. Usually in that order. Ok, who am I kidding. I try to clean the house but it mostly involves me trying to hide stuff frantically before anyone comes over. I'm getting pretty good at it. I'm really excited to grow my blog as a sort of online scrapbook for myself to help keep track of everything going on with my baby man.
Charles is my fiance and partner of the last ten years. We have been together since our freshman year of high school and JC is our latest adventure in coupledom. I couldn't ask for a better partner in a relationship, parenting or life. We are currently (very slowly) trying to plan a wedding to occur in the spring of 2012 so I'll definitely post about any new developments in that area. I can't even comprehend how overwhelming planning a wedding is. We both want to get married but when we both get overwhelmed, we shut down and watch zombie movies. Every time I really sit down and start trying to plan, it pretty much always ends in me asking Charles to elope.
Anyway I enjoy reading mommy, baby, crafty, wedding, and home design blogs. If your blog fits one of those genres, leave me comment or shoot me an email, I'd love to check it out.
