“Life is what happens while you are busy making other plans.”–Allen Saunders, American writer, journalist and cartoonist.

Life doesn’t always turn out like we planned. Sometimes it’s better! I’m a Mom of 3 adult children (and several furry children), a bellydancer (YES, a bellydancer!), a Black Belt in Tang Soo Do (that happened at age 42), a recent college graduate with a B.S. in Mass Communication/Public Relations (at 48), and a firm believer that it’s never too late to follow your dreams and find your happiness. The purpose of this blog is to encourage YOU, no matter what you THINK might be holding you back, to live life to the fullest.

My family is a bunch of nerds, goofballs and just plain crazy folk! We love to have fun and make one another laugh. I’ll be sharing some of our goofiest moments and some randomness with you in This Crazy, Crazy Life, as well as my craft adventures in Melissa Makes, and all the mayhem that happens in our kitchen in What’s Cookin’?. I’ll also be doing a little something I like to call the Friday Feature.

Oh and hey, my plan for 2018 is to regain my Warrior Woman mentality (and body!) so be watching for posts about my return to martial arts training, and my general attempt at health and fitness. LOL

In the meantime, I encourage you to fill your life with love and laughter and find joy in the little things.
