About Me

I am 28 and I just got married on March 28th!! I am loving married life! It's been quite an adjustment learning to live with another person in a small area, but it's a lot of fun!

I enjoy crafts, reading, taking photos, crocheting, scrapbooking, working out, playing the wii, flag football with the guys, sand volleyball, and running.

My passion in life is photography. I love capturing beauty in everyday life. I love the process of developing my own photos.

I collect recipes, Bible verses, quotes, note cards, and crosses (no crucifixes).

My favorite color is pink... all shades! I also love lime green.

Favorite Music

I love music in general! I'm talking everything from rock to country to classical to 80's music to showtunes!

I'm a huge fan of Nickleback, the Fray, Snow Patrol, most country and Christian music. I'm not a big fan of rap music.

Favorite Books

  • Books by Meg Cabbot
  • Books by Kevin Leman
  • Suspense/Detective type Books
  • Quote Books
  • 5 Love Languages

** I am very interested in reading the Twilight Series, but have yet to get started. That will probably be what I tackle during my days by the pool this summer.

Favorite Movies

  • Liar, Liar
  • What Happens In Vegas
  • 27 Dresses

Favorite Crafts

I love crafts! Anything and everything is fun! I just love taking ordinary objects and making a masterpiece!

My current faves are scrapbooking, cardmaking, and crocheting!

Comment: Hello Melissa, I received your Z Recipe for the "Z Recipe Postcard" Swap. What a great way to end this swap with a recipe for zucchini bread. This is my favorite dessert-type bread. As I get the last receipe to finish this swap, it still amazes me that I did not get one repeat recipe through this entire swap. So, I have some 100 recipes to try. I am going to start off with your recipe, making your recipe for zucchini bread to enjoy for dessert over the next week or so. Thank you again and Happy Swapping. I hope we continue to meet on Swap-bot as it has been a pleasure to swap with you. Hope to see you soon. Barb sleepingrover2010

Comment: Very oversized but wonderful. Love the lyrics and they are something that I can currently related to. I've heard of her but that song doesn't sound familiar. I'm off to iTunes now to take a listen.
