In keeping with my theme of the week (or 8 days) I now present to you...Melina!! I probably know Melina the least out of all the ladies I'll be introducing you to - but that doesn't mean I don't think she's a pretty neat woman! She's relatively new to these neck of the woods & I met her soon after she moved here. I guess I should say I accosted her on the street one day while she was walking with her uber-cute son, River. Seriously, I was walking to pick up my boy & met her near my house, introduced myself and then asked if she wanted to join me on my walk - I think I talked the whole time! But, you know what? I'm so glad that I did, because she & her family then slid right into our neighborhood routine! Melina is a scientist and an environmentalist (maybe even an environmental scientist...) she is really good with kids, a great teacher, an even better Mom and I'm pretty sure she loves chocolate!
