Melissa is a mom who is entering the next chapter of her life “Empty Nesting”. She has three beautiful daughters ranging from 25-18, and a mom-in-law to one amazing son. She is married to the love of her life, Raul, a native of Mexico. They are celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary this year.  She is also mom to 6 furbabies (1 spoiled Shih Tzu and a pit bull mix and 4 cats) and a grand ”fur” mom to 2 cats. In her spare time, she enjoys reading, crafting, and encouraging others to be their best. She has just recently overcome anxiety from being in way too many car accidents. (their fault not hers) and now she is burning up the roads exploring her beloved state of North Carolina. If you are looking for a blog that shares about travel, life in general, the “M” words- Marriage, Menopause, Motherhood, and everyday topics with an occasional recipe and craft thrown in for good measure then you have found where you need to be. Sit back, relax with your favorite beverage and explore all that Adventures of Frugal Mom has to offer.
