I am Melisa, aka the Gentlelady from California. I have a passion for farming and agriculture, likely from my having been brought up on a dairy farm. I love to travel (original, I know). I may have been born with a book in my hand – and am a bookworm to this day. I have an appreciation for proper grammar and am not afraid to let you know when you’re abusing it! I have four beautiful nieces and a nephew, and they have filled my heart in a way that I never expected. I love to attend concerts – live music is almost always amazing, even if I don’t even know the artist(s). I have a sewing machine and somewhat know how to use it. I need to work on more projects – it’s presently collecting dust in my house!
I am a runner, albeit a slow one. I’ve run 75+ races in just five years, including 7 full marathons. I have no idea where this blog is going to go at this stage in my life, but it seemed like it was time to rekindle it.
