Welcome to Melanie In The Middle. I’m a blogger based in the suburbs of Boston and a mom to four wonderful children.
Melanie In The Middle. So what they heck is that all about? Well, I’m in the middle of it all. I have two teens and two elementary schoolers. So, I’m not a new mom, but not yet an empty nester by any stretch of the imagination.
I’ve moved on from diapers and baby bottles to iPod toting tweens and teens. And now that I’m out of that all encompassing baby phase of my life, I find myself with a little time on my hands to explore what interests me.
So, what makes me tick?
Travel. Exploring new places and meeting people makes me crazy happy.
Cooking. If I’m not blogging, you will most likely find me dancing around the kitchen whipping up some fantastic nibble while lip synching to the Eagles, much to my children’s chagrin.
Shopping. What woman doesn’t like to shop? Wine and chocolate. Consumed at the same time. Perfection.
Music. I wish I could say I’m a music hipster. I’m not. My iTunes account is filled with the Eagles, Fleetwood Mac, Sting, Chicago, Elton John, Pink Floyd and Metallica, just to name a few. How’s that for eclectic?
Life. I’m passionate about living. In 2011 I was in a near fatal accident that took me months to recover from. I had to learn to walk again after spending months in a hospital bed and then a wheelchair. I look at life as a gift and I’m so thankful for each day that I wake up on the right side of the soil.
Through this blog I hope to share with you these things that make me happy. My family. My adventures. My life. And maybe together we will learn a thing or two along the way on this crazy journey we call life.
