About Me

Hi, I’m Melanie

Mom Blogger Review Mom & me Session

I’m a wife and mother of three. I’m a lifestyle blogger and a photographer, although blogging is now my full-time gig. You can read more about that here.

I grew up in a in Texas and I never left my hometown. Now while you might think that’s a little boring, I love where I grew up and I love being so close to family and friends that I’ve known my whole life.


I graduated from college with a B.B.A. in Information Systems and worked for many years in the corporate world before deciding to leave it after my first daughter was born. It was the best decision I ever made. 

I have discovered so many things about myself after becoming a mother. It almost feels as if I wasn’t really living…until I had a family of my own. I have a passion for creating and being creative. I love music and photography, I love to DIY – anything before I buy something. I really don’t need a reason to throw a party. 🙂 This blog was started back in in May of 2013 after my oldest daughter turned a year old. I honestly had no idea where this venture would take me, but it’s taken me to a place where I have been able to meet and connect with so many amazing people. As mothers, the desire that we have to come together to support one another, the sense of community, the inspiration and encouragement we provide one another was not like anything I expected to find. I am so grateful to be able to do this.

I am married to the love of my life & my best friend.  I couldn’t have asked for a better, more loving husband and father to my girls. I think I knew he was the one as soon as we met. 🙂

And now, we are a family of four – soon to be five! And we are definitely learning as we go. I hope you follow me through this journey; this crazy joyride on earth we call Motherhood. I promise… to tell it like it is.

      Hi Lolo! It has taken me a little time to adjust and get into a ‘routine’ being a mama. I posted before about my transition and how it was hard for me. I had to force myself to get on a schedule and a little routine so that I could actually schedule some ‘me’ time in advance, even if it was just once a week for me to do something, even something as small as painting my toenails. So I definitely recommend making a schedule/routine. It doesn’t have to be followed strictly, but it does give you sort of a structure. Although, now that baby #2 is almost here, I am anticipating that our little daily routine we have will go right out the window and we will have to come up with a new one 🙂 At least for a little while… Thanks for asking though!
