About Melody


Retirement from wonderful mortgage lending career in Muskegon, Michigan and a successful husband have allowed me to take some time off to enjoy life for a while.  I moved to Knoxville, Tennessee and made 2018 my “Year of 50 — Fun and Fabulous!”

This last year I was able to travel like no other!  Italy, Mexico, Florida, Phoenix, Vegas, Nashville, Washington DC, Gatlinburg, Chicago, Milwaukee, New Orleans, Kansas City and my home away from home – Michigan.  Thank God for my United miles for my freebie flights!

I have two fabulous daughters and David is my husband of 30 years and the love of my life!

My Fur Babies!  Callahan is a 7 year old black Labrador Retriever and he is such a good dog.  His new sister is Josie, a 2 year old “red” yellow Labrador. She is an absolute delight and so loving.  They are my constant companions throughout the day as I plan my adventures in Mid-Life Goddess Awesomeness!

I will always be a true Michigan State Spartan!  Shout out to the graduation class of 1990 — Go Green!

Lisa and I went to Phoenix this year for the MSU vs. Arizona State football game.  Sadly, we lost the game in 108 degree heat at midnight!  But we got to party with Tom Izzo so definitely worth the hotness!
