Melissande is a stay at home, homeschooling mom of 4 soon to be 5 children. She enjoys reading, writing, sewing, and her weekly Girls' Night get togethers. She believes the best things in life are not in the big things, but the small every day moments, a cup of coffee, the sound of her husband coming home, the repeated reading of Goodnight Gorilla, and the sleepy smiles of her children. She blogs over at Our Growing Roots. You can also find her on Facebook.
