The Year I Start A Blog
Here's the thing: I work as a Brands Specialist by day for a company called VSCO. It's a beautiful, wonderful job where I thrive everyday - but I was feeling the big need for a creative outlet. I need a place to share photos, write words, and have a place to record the bits of life I want to remember. So that brings us here- a little piece of the internet that I can call my own. Welcome to my space: a place where I'll be sharing whatever I want, whenever I want.
To start things off- let me tell you a bit about myself.
I'm Melodie! I live in Colorado Springs with my tiny family: a handsome bearded husband named Ian, and a hairless kitty named Quinn (you'll be seeing much of them around here). Ian and I got married a year ago in a friend's barn. Before that, I was living in Oakland working at VSCO's headquarters. When Ian proposed, we knew that Colorado needed to be home. We've got a community of people we love so dearly, lots of mountains to climb, and a whole lot of beer to drink. Ian would probably tell you that my sense of style is weird (most of the time in a good way), I'm pretty messy, I only like old lady games, and I spend a lot of time on the couch. I could also add that I love taking photos, baths, tattoos, the color black, and smoking bones.
I once had a blog - but never followed through with it. I've wanted to get back into it for a long time, but always felt afraid. The fear held me back for a long time, and I've realized that taking the first step is the only way to keep moving forward. So this is the year I stick to it. Thanks for coming along.
