My name is Melissa. I have two daughters, ages 10 and 9, a five-year-old son, a husband of 13 years, work full time for a PR firm and have a very busy calendar.  We live in a little house in an adorable New England beach town outside Providence.


I love fashion although I confess to owning a rather impressive collection of yoga pants. I love handbags, shoes, boots, a fabulous pair of jeans, funky jewelry, boots and anything with ruffles. Did I mention boots? I’m co-founder and editor of All Things Chic.

I’m totally addicted to coffee, have a deep and real relationship with my Keurig. And I am not ashamed of that.

I love taking pictures, but I’m an total amateur. Most of the really amazing pictures you see here were probably taken by my husband. We have the Nikon D7000 and more lenses than I know how to use.

We absolutely love to travelWith the kidswithout the kidsnear and far. We’re game for anything! We just returned from Greece and the Bahamas and we’re planning trips to England and Brazil now.

I love cooking and think there is not much better in life than sharing a good meal with family and friends.

And, most importantly, I’m a child of God, and I claim the grace of Jesus Christ alone for my salvation and sanctification.

This blog is a place for me to share what’s happening in my life, the good, the bad and the crazy. I love this blog and the amazing people it has brought into my life. You are all a blessing to me.

Here are my little darlings. Don’t they look so sweet and adorable and precious?


And not at all threatening? Can you not even imagine that these beautiful creatures would ever make me want to tear my hair out, run away from home and/or drink tequila directly from the bottle? Don’t be fooled. They usually look more like this:
