About Me

{Interlaken, Switzerland}

Hi there and welcome!

I’m so happy you found your way here to my little blog.  My name is Melissa and I’m a freelancer and soon-to-be law student.  I currently write from San Franciso, though I certainly wouldn’t complain if I were based in Interlaken, Switzerland (one of my favorite places in the world).  Kidding aside, I’m a bonafide California girl and the beautiful “City by the Bay” will always be my first love.

I started this blog in the summer of 2009 as a fun experiment right after graduating from college.  I initially wanted to chronicle my adventures as an “emerging adult” and to explore the awkward territory known as “The Quarter Life Crisis”.  That idea was swiftly discarded when I realized that I wanted a love list, not a “whine” list.  I waffled about for months trying to “find” myself and my blog niche — a holy-grail idea that I obsessed over for a period of time.  I mean, I wanted to do it the “right” way!  What do I want to say?  How do I want to say it?

Then it hit me: I should just do what I love and share that.  That would be the “right” way.  And plus, I love many, many things.  So this is what this blog is about — food, travel, design, current events, great books and basically all things that inspire or humor me.  A love list, straight from the heart.  Simple as that.

Thank you so much for stopping by.
