James challenged me last night to create a new post today, so here I am. I was complaining to him that if I don't post about Natalie, I really have no idea what to post about, isn't that sad? I have some really creative friends who write interesting posts that aren't to do with their kids and I'm a little jealous of their talents. It may sound really nerdy, but we brainstormed some things I could post about besides Natalie...I am sounding really pathetic, I know! What would pre-mom Melissa say about this!
So I have decided to reveal a little known fact about myself that will shock you all, I'm sure! It has been a wish of mine for the last few years to learn how to play the banjo and be able to play it well. Everytime I hear a song (not country) that features the banjo, I have an unexplained euphoria and immediately smile and start swaying or tapping my foot. I have heard it being used in songs by Travis, Dave Matthews Band, Guster, and Fountains of Wayne . I must admit as well, that I am a fan of Alison Kraus because of her banjo talents (or someone in her band). Anyway, my secret is out, now James will know exactly what to get me for a present one day =).
By the way, "little known facts about Melissa" was not one of the topics brainstormed last night, I came up with this one as I was writing this.
