Posted by Melissa Schmalenberger on December 29, 2014 in Family, Food, Holidays, life, Moms |

Now that the dust, pine needles, sugar high, gift tearing frenzy is over I can take time to applaud myself and say that the holiday I designed this year was perfect for me. Did I just say it was for me? Yes that is right. We design holidays for other people and what we imagine […]

Easy Summer Grilling

Posted by Melissa Schmalenberger on June 3, 2014 in Family, Food, life, Moms |

    I have a confession to make: our family has been eating out way too much. Sometimes it is easier with all of us on different schedules to meet somewhere for dinner than it is for me to think about what to make for dinner. But I missed making dinner. I missed my kids […]

Organizing Is The Spice Of Life

Posted by Melissa Schmalenberger on May 27, 2014 in Family, Food, life, Moms |

Nothing gets me more excited than organizing! I love walking into a client’s home and seeing the chaos and knowing that I am trusted to make it all better. I see it as a puzzle that was dumped on the floor….I start by sorting the edges…then grouping like items together and start moving pieces around […]

The kitchen is the heart of the home. It is the place that we gather to share our day. It is the place that we make healthy meals. It is where our kids sit and do homework. It is a gathering spot for papers and incoming mail. We want an organized kitchen and we just […]

Freezer Clean Out

Posted by Melissa Schmalenberger on February 8, 2013 in Family, Food, life, Moms |

After I cleaned out my fridge I knew the freezer was not far behind. I found the freezer much easier to clean and organize for some reason, and I am not sure why. Maybe it was because I knew some of the items have been in my freezer since the ice age, or at least […]
