This is blog of a woman who didn't know what she wanted and so chased after dreams and men in search of the answers...drunken hilarity ensued. Then one day she met a man who was everything she wanted, but he wasn't so sure. Then she did the unthinkable; after they broke up she gave him this blog address and she let him into her mind as well as her heart. Unbelievably, even after sorting through the sordid archives of failed relationships, one night stands and her lusty (and embarassing) pursuit to secure the heart of a certain young line cook, John somehow managed to fall in love with her too. Melina and John were married a little over six months after they started dating, running away to Las Vegas to seal the deal. You can imagine what the over/under bet was to see if they'd even make it a year!! Over a year later and they are still going strong...this blog has become their story. Need to tell me something?

The Ring

Be properly awed-it's the nicest thing anyone's ever gotten me--and it's the only piece of jewelry I wear aside from a broken $5.00 silver band that I've been wearing since I've been in high school.

It's not the ring that I love so much, it's the man behind the ring...the man who put thought in the diamond, the setting, the inscription--the effort that he put in to make it the best ring for me. It's kind of like the little things that he does everyday, to make sure that it's the best life for us. Although, this not a little thing. Most of all, I love that it's part of our present and our future.

Because I have chubby fingers that looked horrendous on film, I made John hold the ring while I took the picture.
