About Me

Hi! I'm Melissa and I live in Idaho state. I am 33-years-old and a mother to two small boys, a whippet, kitten and husband. I stay home with my boys and squeeze in freelance writing jobs.

Here are a few random things about me:

  • My favorite colors are red, yellow, teal and pink

  • I'm trying to have a green thumb and like plants.

  • I love watercolors of succulents

  • I love whimsical, day-dreamy illustrations

  • My favorite creatures (real and mythical) are foxes, hedgehogs, whales, mermaids, bears, cats, starfish

  • I'm a francophile

  • I'm inspired by music, nature and beautiful art

  • I play the piano and am learning the ocarina and violin.

  • My dream is to fiddle like my great-grandpa

Family Life

My little family is pretty tight-knit, partially because we are isolated from our extended family and have always lived in little (but sweet) homes. Here are some things we do:

  • My husband and I love to binge watch t.v., go to concerts when we can, listen to music, play board games and go on dates.

  • My boys and I like to explore new parks and trails, draw and paint, build with legos, go for bike rides, go to the $1 theater and read stories

  • My pets and I like to sleep, walk and eat ;)
