Lake Tahoe


I just returned from vacation...
I went out west to see my dear friend Megan.


I couldn't get enough of the views.


Danny just turned 2...he stole my heart.


Sweetness


View during lunch.


My new friend TJ wakeboarding.


Everywhere you looked...pure beauty.


A morning kayak.


Beers in the afternoon.  


Amazing sunsets.


Star gazing on the boat.


 For those who just wanted chocolate melted in between their grahams.


Keeping our feet warm by the fire.

I had the most wonderful time.

I cried when I left.  

I miss my friend so much.

I can't wait to go back.

Thank you, Megs!
XO

Frayed Around The Edges - announcing new blog!



I'm excited to tell you...

I launched a new blog!

Frayed Around The Edges

aka FATE

www.frayedaroundtheedgeswithmel.com

It is a work in progress.  

Like most things...you just have to start, right?

FATE, will be about my clothing adventures.  

I've had so much fun so far.

I hope you will enjoy it and follow along with me!

I do want to thank my Niece, Ashley, for making the time to come to Chicago...
 take pictures of me...
and mostly, encouraging me to continue. 
She has been helpful with the Wordpress process 
(I am realizing I am technically challenged)
and helping me develop my site. 
Love you Ash!

Also, my sisters...
my biggest fans...
who told me...
WHO CARES...
DO WHAT YOU WANT...

WEAR WHAT YOU WANT!!!

So, there you have it...

FATE has arrived.

Under Construction



I decided to get off the couch...
 and put down the classics
(seriously, these are not going well).

Have you had those moments?

Where you just need something else...

...

So...I got inspired...
and created a little space...

Something I enjoy...
put in one place...
to share.

It's almost ready...
