First and foremost, I am a work in progress. I'm a working mother, wife, caffeine addict, bookworm, and firm believer of self-reinvention. I have a Bachelor of Science in Public Relations from Texas Tech University that I try to use every day to make things just a little bit better for someone else.


 When I'm not blogging or working, chances are i can be found snuggled up with a good book, enjoying a glass of wine or mug of coffee, dancing around my house, or browsing Pinterest and the interwebs for inspiration! I also love to travel when I can and spend as much time as possible with my husband, Jake, and our son.

A note from Melissa:

About a year ago I was reading P.D. James’s The Mistletoe Murder & Other Stories in which the narrator describes a sleepless night of thinking. She says “[I was] trying to impose order on disorder. I think that is what I’ve been wanting to do all my life.” In all the books I’ve read, I’ve never found myself so spot-on described! Is that a good thing or a bad thing? Still figuring it out...but it is definitely my truth!


Who am I: a 50+ book a year reader, a transplanted California beach junky, a fierce Mama Bear to my boys, a passionate supporter to my husband/partner in crime, a relentless believer in the power of literacy, an unwavering backer to my best friend and her amazing ideas #livewithmoxie, a grateful writer eager to share words that are meaningful, honest and brave!
