Welcome to Meet the Vines, a Family Lifestyle Blog!


Hi everyone!

I'm Melissa, The Future Mrs. Vines. I started a blog called Keeping Up With The Vines, a little over two years ago. At first it was on the Blogger platform, then I moved it to Wordpress. Now we're moving back to Blogger and changing the name and web address for a few reasons. First and foremost, the domain name was LONG. Next up, we're not doing anything so special that you'd really want to "keep up" with us in the "I want that" sense. We're just a normal-ish middle class family sharing food, family, fun and some other stuff.


You can learn more about me here.

In early 2014, I changed positions at the place we both worked at the time. I moved from the office to the warehouse, where Travis worked. To make a long story short, a colleague told me Travis, Mr. Vines, had a crush on me. Yeah, we're adults.

It took me a while, but after working alongside Travis, my opinion of him became more favorable as the days passed. Eventually, I came to see him as the amazing man he is today! 

A few months later, we really connected at a friend's holiday gathering and have been together (almost inseparably) ever since. In April of 2015 we "officially" moved in together from an apartment to a house.

Here's Travis

He loves his Nissan 350Z, Star Wars (especially collecting LEGO sets), 
his man-cave, household DIY and more! Read more about him here.

Before Travis came along, there was Nicholas, my (now) teenage son. He'll be an adult soon, though he's still in high school.

Nicholas is currently a Junior in high school. He used to love all things electronics and technology, including PC gaming, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. He hopes to be a video game designer / developer one day. He’s been learning coding and graphic design by teaching himself through the internet. He can also fix, clean and install operating systems on computers, root Android and iPhone (etc.) devices. He’s our little tech genius!

Now that he's a teenager he's less into tech and more into his car, his friends and his girlfriend. GASP!

Thanks for Visiting!

We hope you'll come back every now and then!
