About Melissa

This is my "start over" blog. I had moved to the Netherlands for 2.5 years and found that it wasn't for me. I guess I'm too much of a Canadian at heart. So now I'm here in Canada with my toddler daughter who was actually born in NL. My dog is with my dad enjoying the good life and I am here trying to start over and get my life back.

Awesome give away!!

Tattoo Artist

Isabella has become obsessed with stickers, to the point where she demands them.  If there aren’t any stickers to be had she throws a fit. I know I shouldn’t allow this behaviour, but she’s so darn cute.  So one day she … Continue reading
