My name is Melissa, I am a mother to a wonderful little boy named Mason. Recently my mother, sister and I were in a horrible rollover accident. I broke my L4 vertebrae so i am in a back brace for 3 months. This accident has taught me not to take life for granted. I enjoy baking cupcakes and cookies, a pastime that was passed down to me from my grandmother...I use her mixing bowl every time. I like to cook and try to use new recipes often. I live in Arizona so I love to take advantage of the gorgeous weather as often as possible. I LOVE a good glass of moscato or riesling, recently I have discovered an great sparkling wine called Villa Alena Moscato D'Asti, it is ahh-mazing! LOL You can find it at Trader Joes. I love to read YA books, like Beautiful Disaster and The 50 Shades Series. I Love getting mail, I promise that everything I send would be something that I would Love to receive myself. :)
