Hello! My name is Melissa and I would like to welcome you to my first ever blog post! I hope you are just as excited as I am! I have wanted to start this blog for a long time but I kept putting it off and putting if off because I felt the need to create the most perfect post and I couldn’t publish anything until I felt 100% about it. Then I got to thinking that I don’t need to be perfect and nor does my post. I am just here to write about my life with my husband, being a new mom to our baby girl Isla, and other things I enjoy like reading, my faith, beauty, DIY, shopping, baby stuff, all things pretty, health and food! I love food but I will warn you now that I am not great with the cooking part of it all, but that’s where my husband comes in. He’s a Chef by trade so I hope to share some of his wonderful recipes with you as well.
My husband Dana and I were married on August 5th, 2011 after dating for 3 years. We were married in a beautiful garden on one of the hottest days of the summer. We had our dinner and reception on a boat cruise and spent the evening out on the calmest lake you would ever see! The whole evening was magical and perfect and spent with our wonderful family and friends!
Fast forward 2 years and my husband and I now own our first home and we just welcomed our first child, a beautiful baby girl named Isla. Life can only get better and I am glad to have you along for the journey!
