Hello Friend! Thanks for stopping by! Grab a cup of coffee (or a latte) ☕️, I’d love to sit and chat with you! If you’re a busy mom trying to do the best for your family and home, then we already have a lot in common! This momming thing isn’t easy and we need a tribe of mama’s for support along the way.

A Little About Me

Let’s get to know each other! I’m Melissa…a Texan living in Canada! 🙋🏻 I thrive on organization, am a recovering perfectionist, and a latte enthusiast! I was a career woman for many years, but my heart’s desire was to be married and have kids. Marriage to me felt like a calling, a vision, something that was part of God’s big plan for my life. I patiently waited for “Mr. Right” (trust me, it took a loooong time), but once we met, my world changed! Within a year, we dated, got engaged, and married!

The Fam

After I married my “honey” I packed up my hive and moved North to the frozen tundra we affectionately call Canada. In the last 5 years we’ve built a house, had 101 home projects (yes, my husband is a carpenter bee), and had two kids now 18 months old and 4 years old…our busy bees!


It’s funny how life changes once you have kids. Life gets a little more chaotic, tasks a little more difficult to accomplish, and sleeping in…well, let’s just say it’s a thing of the past. (sigh) But, love is multiplied, our hug tank is filled daily, and Friday night fun is totally redefined! These innocent soft skinned babies are entrusted to us…and I’m sure like me, you want to give them the best life possible!

Between the work that needs to get done and having quality time with our family, often, twenty-four hours in a day, just doesn’t seem enough! That’s why it’s my goal to help moms like you
