I met Melissa Bradford tonight. She spoke as part of our Stake Relief Society "Women's Speaker Series" and shared excerpts from her book Global Mom. Her talk was inspiring. I heard about Melissa (a friend-of-a-friend) back in 2007 when her oldest son Parker passed away and was happy to finally meet her. I gave her some valentine photo cards and she gave me Swiss chocolate.
I was born and raised in Van Nuys, California. I moved to Boston sight-unseen and have loved living in New England since that day when I said, "this apartment is OLD". My hobbies are antiquing, reading books and magazines (bring back Blueprint and Domino please), sewing, quilting, sightseeing, watching movies, and photography. I love the color red and have a retro red refrigerator (and kitchen aid mixer and ice cream maker and toaster and...) to prove it! I live in a converted high school and love decorating my loft condo (w/ 18 foot ceilings) that was formerly the auditorium. I have 3 brothers, 11 nieces and nephews, and a bus fleet of friends.
