Hello!  My name is Melanie Smith.  I am 40-ish,ish!  I have the joy of teaching preschool and fitness classes in Shreveport, Louisiana.  I have been married to my husband, Rourke, for 27 years.  Together, we have been blessed with two amazing children.  Our son, Erin, 27,  lives in Dallas.  Our daughter, Hayley 24, lives in Shreveport.

In my free time, I enjoy cooking, decorating, exercising, and entertaining.  I love my home state of Louisiana.  I love anything southern. And, I believe you should begin every day with a grateful heart!

Welcome to my blog!  I hope you can get some inspiration from it!
