Hello and welcome to my blog!

My name is Melissa. I grew up in the mountains on the East Coast, but moved to the Midwest during my college years, met my husband (Andrew), and decided to stay!

Currently, we live in our 1930’s farmhouse next to a lake near the city with our two dogs (River and Lucy) and our two cats (Bob and Eva). WhileΒ I have backgrounds in Business Marketing and Digital Content Management, my passions are in carpentry, design, and gardening. I enjoy working with my hands, reading, writing, hiking, and spending time with the ones I love. I am a daydreamer at heart and believe in living simply, creatively and intentionally. I strive to make my home a comfortable space to be and relax and my doors are always open!

Thank you so much for stopping in and checking us out!
