Introduction #1

In September, 2001, just a couple of days before the terrorist attacks, we moved to a new house in a new neighborhood. A few days later I introduced myself to my neighbors and I met a lovely young lady with her three kids, (and her husband) and we became fast friends. Since then she moved there, and over there, and then back here, then over yonder and now she is there and I am here, but she has been a dear friend all this time. She has added two more kiddos to the mix over the years, too.
I would like you to meet my real life friend Mel.

What is your name? Melanie (Monday through Sunday)

If I ask "Who are you?" what first comes to mind, other than your name? Sentimental, a loyal friend, happy, a smile and the gap in my teeth.

How did you find my blog? You told me.

Tell us about your blog, if you have one. I set up my blog for family and friends who do not live close by.. I post pictures and stories, and odd and ends to keep them updated on our family..

Where do you live? Colorado

What movie has touched you most, (made you cry)? And why. Old Yeller, the dog dies in the end. I was so sad after I saw that movie as a child and I didn't watch it again till I was in my twenties.

What movie has made you laugh hardest? And why. Sweet Home Alabama, I saw it while living in a small town in Georgia.

Name three books that you will never forget. And why. Where the Red Fern Grows, I cried so hard...and it made me want a dog so bad. A Wrinkle In Time, It was an fun, enjoyable book.. Little Women, I did not read the whole book till way later in life, after Joe said no to Laurie I couldn't go on and read the end...I mean how could she NOT love Laurie and fall for the old professor. UGH!!

What is your greatest strength? I am encouraging, at times.

What do you like best about me? No-- really. (ok, not really) You are funny! Sensitive, honest, encouraging, loyal, and fun.

What computer game are you addicted to? Pig Pen , lol

Share any other tidbit about you that we might like to know. I am a mother of five and married for 12 years. I love to cook and find new recipes to make. I enjoy decorating and wish I had more money to do more in my home. I love the Lord with all my heart and pray that it reflects in the way I am a wife and mother.


  1. Awe, that's so cool!

    Thanks for lunch yesterday. We'll have to do it again soon.

  2. Thank you Kay for such kind words and for being such a dear friend. ~ Mel

  3. Hi Kay,
    I always think that a good friend is Gods blessing and people who live/ed in Georgia are pretty great too!!!


I love to hear your thoughts!
