My name is Melissa and I am 25 years old. I live in the town of Tacoma, WA, I have lived in WA nearly all my life, but resently moved back from Edmond, OK. I currently live with my husband ( 41 ) who is in the U.S Army and is now stationed at Ft. Lewis, WA. I am very much in Love with him but sometimes want to beat his head in. LOL We work well together!
We welcomed our first little one together on March 8th and I also have a beautiful step-daughter (from his previous marriage) and her name is Sarah. I love her dearly and she just recently turned 15 years old. I am so excited to have my family and I couldn't have asked God for a better blessing in my life. I can't wait for her to come and live with us here in the states.
I am also one of those lovely tattooed mommies! I have so far four tats, I finally finished my lower back tattoo and got one more on my right shoulder blade, much to the dismay and reluctance of my husband recently, but he is slowly happy about them. I love that I am the only woman he has ever been with that has tattoos. It is a new experience for him and he is hoping that I don't encourage our children to get any, but they will know that if they ever want one I will be more than happy to buy them their first! LOL
