About Melissa

Hello and welcome! I’m Melissa, the heart and hands behind this blog. My journey as a homemaker began over 33 years ago. I’m a wife and mom to five, step mom to four, and Grandarling to 18 and counting! I love serving my family and making our house a space that feels like home to everyone who enters.

I’ve always loved the idea of homemaking. When I was a little girl, I loved to play house and pretend to cook and clean. My mom always got magazine subscriptions of Better Homes and Gardens and Country Living in the mail and I would pour over the house interiors. I loved looking at the house plans from Southern Living too! I couldn’t wait to have a home of my own to make into something special.
