Well, hello! Nice to meet you. 🙂
I’m Melissa. I’m a wife (est. August 2013), a mom (est. July 2015), and a devoted hockey fan (Go Sharks!) that loves to create, binge on collecting pretty things, and just can’t sit still. I work as an Office Coordinator & Graphic Design/Social Media Resource for my 9-5 job and I also coordinate weddings in beautiful Southern California on the side. As if I needed another project to take on right? Told ya… I just can’t sit still!
I started Cherish & Bloom for a couple of reasons. The pull towards creating this blog came when I had my first child – my daughter, Devyn. I was going through so much… and so much of it was completely terrifying yet insanely amazing. I longed to share everything! I mean, I can’t be the only one that is just kind of doggy paddling through this thing called parenthood, right? I just figured out how to jive as my role as a wife. And before that I was just understanding who I was as an individual and as a woman. So BAM! It all just hit me like a ton of bricks. I needed an outlet.
In addition to sharing my own experiences, I want to share things that inspired me. I studied design in school, and am blessed to continue to do digital design as well as event design for a living. My mind and soul thrives on beauty… beauty in all forms.
If you love fashion, food, babies, and just keeping it real, you’ll feel right at home.
Let’s be friends! 🙂
