About Me

Hi!  Welcome to my little place on the Interwebs.  My name is Melissa Murray.  I am married to a really great guy, Jason, and we have two of the sweetest little girls you'll ever meet - Caitlin and Eleanor.  We were a military family, and have lived all over the States (OK, AR, IL, VA, WA, WI, TN,and TX) and spent some time overseas (the Netherlands), but we currently reside in Bentonville Arkansas.

Things about me (in no particular order):

1. I love to laugh, and I like to make others smile. 
2. I enjoy true crime mystery shows and documentaries.  Is 20/20 on?  Dateline?  Serial?  I'm there.  
3. I try to be a peaceful parent, but I'm not always super great at it.  
4. I'm a work in progress.
5. I'm obsessed with health and fitness... My execution needs some work.
6. I'm a softy. 
7. Photography is my first real artistic outlet. I'm not crafty. AT ALL. Thank goodness for Etsy.
8. I love to cook.  I just love food in general. All kinds.  
9. I love to try new things.
10. I believe in leading with love. I believe my faith requires me to dig deep for empathy, even when it's not comfortable. 
11. There's nothing in the world more important to me than my little family.  My home is wherever they are. 
12. I'm an NPR nerd.  This American Life is my jam.
