Melissa likes to read and play word games and puzzles - anything to keep her mind occupied and challenged. Somewhat of a stickler for grammar and order, she still knows how to take it easy and not get uptight (although she DOES text with full sentences and punctuation most of the time). Melissa loves her family and really enjoys cooking, planning events and entertaining.
