    I’m so glad your surgery went well, even with an atomic wedgie! It sounds like we have lots to look forward to from the blog this holiday season, so thanks for your hard, dedicated work!

    Happy Holidays back at you It is wonderful see you in real life–robe and all–after surgery and to know through you how we can adapt to life when it doesn’t go as planned, even during the holidays. Best wishes that you will continue to heal well.

    Melessa, your robe is cute, but I immediately thought of these ones I just saw last week, that you would look gorgeous in, but still be comfy:

    Hi beautiful lady! I know you will make things happen this holiday season, even if you have just one wing to do it with. I think we all have those holidays that we have to sacrifice because of illness or surgeries and you know what, it’s okay to say to yourself, “it is what it is” and move forward. Because I have seen your home inside and out, I absolutely love all the things you have done to show everyone how we can make our homes special for our families and for ourselves. Happy Holidays Melessa and I look forward to seeing all your wonderful ideas in 2018.

    Ha ha ha! I am sitting here laughing out loud! A french baguette on your handβ€”brilliant! Lol. And the comment about the accidental wedging had me bust out in laughter. I think the funniest part was picturing Nate innocently help you with your pants. I am so, so happy the boys and Nate have been there to carry you through this time, You deserve the world, Melessa. Loved the post and love you! Merry Christmas!

    So glad the surgery went well! You could really knock Nate a good one upside the head with that cast. πŸ™‚

    You are an inspiration to me, Melessa–such a tough surgery, but I’m glad it turned out well. You looked tremendous, smiling away after all you’ve been through! I oftentimes want to comment on your wonderful blogs but it depends on if my hands (esp. my left) allows me to type and then there’s the fatigue of the Parkinson’s. It takes a long time to type one-handed–I’m sure you know the feeling! Your workshop products are beautiful! You are so creative and talented.
