Over the river and through the woods, to Melissa’s house we go…
Welcome to the Woods, a blog about all inspiring at the Woods’ household. Here you will learn to be a more conscientious parent, a more crafty artist, and a more ambitious DIY-er. My name is Melissa Woods and I write for the homemaker in you; to help the stay at home parent feel a little less alone, the working mom to feel a little more in control, and the aspiring creative to embrace their skills. If you love making a house into a home, you’ll feel right at home here.
Every Monday I post a new article ranging in topics from parenting my young children to creating home improvement projects and decor. I’ve been blogging for three years now and love it! The topics I write about are the bits of my life I can never get off my mind. As a homemaker, I feel my two most important goals are to create a beautiful, healthy home as well as raise well behaved, respectful children. If you feel those goals are important to you, sign up for my newsletter and follow along.
I am a young mom to three wonderful kids, Lillian (5) Nicholas (3) and Theodore (1). I am married to my high school sweetheart, Stephen. He encourages me to push myself in life. I’ve always wanted to be a writer, and Stephen prodded me to start a blog for almost a year before I took the plunge in January of 2014. His pride in my creative and parenting abilities helped me to believe I had something valuable to share.
My hope for this blog is that I write an article to help you, inspire you, or improve your quality of life.
It is amazing to be able to reach out to someone you might never have met and touch their lives. I thank my husband for encouraging me to start it, I know I’ve helped at least a few people already. I really hope you stick around and sign up for my email newsletter; this is my blog to give you a glimpse into life in the Woods.
