About Me

My name is Melissa, and I'm the face behind Lulu & Sweet Pea.

I'm a hairstylist and nail tech turned stay-at-home-mom living in the Pacific Northwest (Washington state, to be more specific). I've been with my husband Shayne for about 13 years now and we are still in love. I know it sounds cliche, but he really is my best friend, and he makes me laugh every single day. He works hard as an incredibly talented professional tattooer, which means long hours and working weekends. That means I get to stay home and chase around our 4 little ones- Ayden, Lily, Harper, and Josiah. I love being home with my kids and I wouldn't have it any other way!

I started blogging back in 2011 just as a way to document our lives for family and friends. I've always loved writing and when I was a kid I always had journals and endless amounts of photo albums, so I figured a blog was just a digital version. Since then it's slowly evolved and grown into a bit more than just a personal "diary" of sorts. I blog about everything from daily mom life, marriage, family, food, crafts, DIY, beauty, books, product reviews, and so on.

When I can find the time I enjoy reading, sewing, quilting, and crafting, and I'm a sucker for reality TV and The Walking Dead, and I drink far too much coffee.

This is my crazy life- welcome to it!
