ABOUT ME

Hi! I am Melissa and I write this little blog here - Are you blown away yet? While It Rains is a Seattle based lifestyle blog in which I am the coordinator of chaos. It's a little bit about raising four kids (a man child, a cat, and three fish too!) and a little bit about me – Finally getting a college degree and navigating life as a semi-new wife and homeowner. It really is, more simply put, a running monologue of the misadventures that are our life...

I oversee the growth and development of three little ladies, I mean they're practically teenagers, named Zoƫ, Rowan, and Stella. Then in 2012 we welcomed our first boy Robin Dash, thank God. I started this blog to document funny things my kids do and say and the occasional time they spread their poop all over my house, you know, to show their boyfriends later in life (much later), and five years later I am still going strong snapping photos and sharing stories of this crazy family I get to be a part of.

Tim is my better half, we got married two and a half years ago and never looked back - It has been my craziest adventure to date and I can't wait to see what our future holds. Oh, and we recently bought a house so I will ramble on and on from time to time about painting a wall or changing a shower fixture, so you're welcome for that. I stay at home with these kids and try and squeeze in time to shower when I can, sometimes I think I am nuts and other times I couldn't be more happy with the path I am on.

I don't take myself too seriously, life is about being young, fun, and adventurous - It's ok if we screw up a little along the way. I love glitter, starbucks and the occasional Twilight movie. I just tried nutella for the first time ever a few months ago and want to move to Alaska someday. Tim says I live true to my Scorpio ways - but I wouldn't change me for anything!

Welcome to my corner of the world! I'm an open book!
