About Us

We’re Mel and Ann

Dear Friends,

Ann and I have been friends for more than 20 years. The first time we met was on a camping trip.  My crew of 3 boys and her 2 girls.  The youngest was still in diapers. Now the youngest is in 8th grade and the oldest is 24 and employed!

We’ve seen it all! From diaper rashes to getting into college.  It has been a journey and the teenage years have been and still are a slippery slope.

Parenting seems to never end.  We’ve witnessed some pretty funny moments with our kids, and we’ve had some downright tough love moments too, that have brought us to tears.

Through all of it, we have held each other up and kept our sanity!  Oh, and the wine helped too!

In the spirit of “sisterhood,” we wanted to create a safe place to talk about what we go through as moms, wives, sisters, and friends while raising our families. We need to take care of each other.  Never take your friends for granted because one day they will come to you and say that they are moving to Florida! (Thanks, Ann)

Stay in touch, don’t let silly misunderstandings get in between a great friendship.  In fact, pick up the phone and call someone who you have been missing for a while–you won’t regret it:)

Our blog focuses on the teen years through college into adulthood.  We’ll be writing articles that we hope are helpful for you.  Some topics will include high school, college and life prep, as well as other topics pertaining to these crazy teen years.

In addition, we have a resource page that will highlight some of our favorite books, websites, and other parenting blogs!  Follow us on Facebook and Pinterest, and Instagram.

We are not ones to hold back our opinions!  Grab your favorite drink and join us for the ride!
