About Me

Hello! My name is Melissa. I am the mom behind Just Me and the Boys. I have a degree in horticulture but decided to leave the gardens to become a stay-at-home mom in 2012. That was the best decision we could have made for our family. I love spending my days with my two boys, Squirrel is 4 and Bug-A-Boo is 1. We also have a dog named Kyle.

As much as I hate being cold we (as a family) are Minnesota lifers! We are strongly connected to our families and cherish the time we get to spend with them.

Just Me and the Boys is a  family themed blog. I will share our joys and challenges as well as crafts, recipes, DIY projects, gardening, cloth diaper info, and breastfeeding support. I will also share with you products I love as well as feature reviews and giveaways!
