Hi! I’m Melissa.

I’m the author and creator here at This Girl’s Life Blog. I currently reside in Eastern Tennessee, with my husband of 14 years, our beautiful 9-year-old daughter and our fur baby Molly.

We are a military family and move quite often. That is what brought us here to Eastern TN, although TN has always been our home state. Who knows where we will end up next, but as always, it is sure to be an adventure.

Being a military family is what initially made me start TGLB. It was our first big move away from family (to Kansas) and I wanted a way to keep everyone updated on our life. Five plus years later it has turned from the initial hobby blog to a small business. I love it and I love sharing my thoughts and ideas with all of you.

This Girl’s Life Blog is a collaboration of DIY projects for the home, adult and kid crafts, yummy recipes, and home and life resources. All (fairly) easy ideas for the busy mom {and dad too}.

Thanks so much to all of you that are reading and commenting. You guys are the best!
