💕5 Life Lessons I Live By💕

Hi beauties!

It’s amazing what you learn about life as you get older. I have learned so many things and I apply these daily to my, and my children’s lives, daily.

1. Always pick quality over quantity. This applies to everything from shoes, to handbags, to friends! So many people think they are in some popularity contest, feeling like they need all kinds of friends. Or with social media, they hope they get so many likes on a photo… It’s comical. Why? I think it makes them feel like they are gaining something later in life they wished they had in high school. Get over it! Like I’ve always said: No one is that important. What’s important is having six great friends that you can count on versus 20 that really could care less.

2. Always be kind, but not too kind. Always be nice to people; you never know what someone is going through. I told a girl the other day that she looked adorable, and her face completely lit up. Don’t ever be too nice to where you let people take advantage.

3. Positive energy is addicting, so spread it. I have met so many great friends who are amazingly sweet and supportive. You can feel positive energy around you. Stay away from the negative energy. You can spot it a mile away. When the friends are supporting you and clapping for you, keep them. Drop the ones that do not clap! They are no good! It truly ends up being out of issues they usually have which are insecurities and jealousy. Don’t ever let anyone tell you that you can’t, because chances are they wish they could.

 4. Always tell your loved ones how much you love them. Time flies by so fast. As a young person, you are always thinking you’re invincible and everyone around you is too. No one is invincible; they will go, and you will not be able to tell them. Make sure everyday, it is known to them!

5. Be spontaneous and adventurous! When I turned 33, I started doing and trying all these new things. I’m loving life right now, and I am so blessed. My family and I are always doing something, and we are a very tight family. We love traveling (when we are off sport season), and we are very competitive which means we are always playing games or challenging ourselves! Get out there and try the things you have always wanted to do. I’m really considering getting my yoga license just because I love it, and I feel like it. Why? Because I can.  Live life everyday!


Live Everyday Fully! 

Hi ladies!

Hope you are all having a great Wednesday! How many times have you told yourself: I wish? Well, if you want your wishes to come true – guess what? They can!

I have so many things on my to do list every day. Redesigning a room, more landscaping, etc. It never ends! I’m a type A person. Everything has to be perfect, and I drive my husband nuts with my to do lists. But it’s all about having fun, and that’s exactly what I do – have fun with things.

I want to move right now, so we have decided we’re on  the 3- to 4-year plan where we are currently. We aren’t sure we even want to stick around after the kids are out of school, because we’re such busy bodies.

I’m a big city person, and so is my husband, but we always say, THIS WORKS for our family right now. Our home is close to everything we need. And I have realized, as many times I’ve said, life is running, and it’s running fast!

I’ve decided, instead of wanting what’s coming, to embrace the now! It’s all about convenience these days, and really: It’s all about my kids, and less about me. I have accepted it, and that’s it. They are happy! What more can you ask for right? They have their friends, their fields, and their schools right around the corner! It’s awesome, and life couldn’t get any better!

Be yourself. Live life, have fun, dance, drink the best wines, and be free! Have good friends, and travel! Always be yourself! No one is like you! I have people emailing me all the time, asking me what I do to keep it together. It doesn’t matter what I do! JUST BE YOU! No one else is like me, and I love it! I think that is why I have raised such amazing, confident kids! Always remember that! No one else is you! Be yourself!!! 💕💕💕 -Melissa


Be Real and Be Yourself

Remember: As much as some people try to be perfect… THEY ARE NOT… Be yourself. Be real. Have fun in the process!


Live like a champion!

If you are anything like me.. You always strive for a challenge!!! You work your butt off for the best and you won’t stop until you get there! Well this is one of my favorite quotes… Live like a champion.. If you want something… Do it now..
