Hello! My name is Melissa and I started this blog as a writing outlet to share interests and inspiration. My ultimate goal is to share knowledge and resources to help people rekindle their inner spirit and live with increased purpose and fulfillment.
I’m married to my best friend and we have a beautiful daughter who is the light of my life. I never knew it was possible to love someone or something so much until she came along. We also have a Jack Russell Terrier named Jack who is along for the ride (and a dog treat or two). I have a full-time job and also run a shop on Etsy called Design.Love.Creative. When I have free time I love to read, do anything creative, try new things, listen to music (especially live music) and if I’m living right, doing something everyday that scares me.
Why the name Design, Love & Inspiration?
Design because I love patterns, fabrics, furniture, architecture, art, decorating and crafts and most importantly, I believe that we can design our lives. Love because love makes the world go around right? Love heals and helps us move forward. Finally, inspiration because we all need inspiration to help us along our journey in life.
