Who’s getting your best?

For months I was haunted by the question “what would your life look like if you gave the best of yourself to the people you love, instead of the people giving you money?” And now we’re taking steps to figure that out.


Dove Recognizes that Fathers are Not Inept, Mouth-Breathing, Man-Children

Join me in having a cleansing, happy-cry at your desk, won’t you?

This is such a beautiful advertisement. I don’t know about you, but as a wife, and mother, and human being, I am sick to death of seeing dads (and men in general) portrayed as inept, mouth-breathing, man-children in media. The ad above? That’s more like it. And it’s sad that it should stand out so much, don’t you think?

Is it possible that maybe (just maybe) our culture is ready to acknowledge fathers as true partners in parenthood, and not inept babysitters of their own children? Gosh, I hope so. It’s about time. Round of applause to Dove for once again pushing advertising in a more positive, healthy direction!

Daily Vlog 1: An Experiment, Y’all

I feel funny asking you guys to vote for me without doing anything in return. So while I can’t high-five you all individually, or invite you to my birthday party, I CAN make more videos. As an expression of my appreciation for YOU taking YOUR time to vote for me, I thought I’d spend some of MY time making a few weeks of small daily-vlogs. A lot of vloggers have done this for a whole year, so I know what I’m doing isn’t anything amazing, but still…it’s the thought that counts, right?

Love y’all! ❤

(If you feel so inclined, I’d love your vote for the ShareSLO Social Ambassador contest today! Here’s the link: just scroll until you see my name, or better yet, use “command/control + F” to find me. When the box pops up, just type “melissa” and you won’t even have to scroll!
