Melissa's STORY

InsideOutside: connecting you to the power and beauty of your story.

“Tell me about yourself.” Who likes this question? Trying to sum up who we are in such a way can be such a catch 22. What do we say so as to give enough information about who we are and what we do and yet not make the questioner run for the hills or fall asleep? It’s tricky, but I’m going to give it a shot because my web designer said I needed to “beef up my content” so..mooo!

If you’re still reading, thank you!

To quote Peter Pan “To live will be an awfully big adventure!” J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan

That’s the motto that I live. I love life, and I want to live it to the fullest. I want everyone around me to be on this adventure as well. The adventure of a full, abundant, healthy life.

Life is truly an adventure that I am loving! I am a wife of an amazingly supportive husband who champions me in every adventure that I choose. Sometimes he plays Captain Hook and keeps me on my toes but what an adventure we live! We travel as often as we can and find ourselves having the best of times. We have been on our adventure together for 27 years!! (that’s a lot of Pixie dust!)

I am a Mother of two, and a Grandmother of one, but don’t ask me which role I like better because both are very big adventures indeed.

My biggest adventure, however, is the adventure of being me. The adventure of discovery. Of self-love. Of big faith. Of knowing who I am and what I want or need. Of becoming my truest self. That’s the adventure that I am on, and that’s the adventure into which I want to invite you.

Be brave.  Be adventurous.  Walk with me.

“All the world is made of faith, and trust, and pixie dust.”

My Hiking Buddy

This little "Moon Pie" is my whole world. She just turned three in January and she is always asking "can we go hiking Lolli?" She keeps me fit physically and emotionally. I have learned so much from her and I'm sure some of it will show up here on Inside Outside. She is a jewel!!


We are the best Grands ever!

The Hubs and I love spending time with each other and a lot of that includes the "Moon Pie." We laugh and have big adventures together. 

Family outings are always adventurous

No matter where we go or what we are doing you can count on the fact that it's going to be fun and that there will be a camera for lots of photos. We enjoy all we can in life.
