Beautiful Mom: Melissa

"The natural state of motherhood is unselfishness. When you become a mother, you are no longer the center of your own universe. You relinquish that position to your children." ~Jessica Lange 

This is Part 9 of my Beautiful Mom Project.  Read my explanation and thoughts here.

What is your favorite motherhood moment?

Watching my kids accomplish something new, like an instrument, sport, or learning to write their name for the first time.

What is your favorite time spent with your kids?

I like going on bike rides with them (when it's not too hot!), playing sports with them at the park, or playing games at home.

What is your least favorite chore?

I'll be honest, ALL OF THEM.  

What inspires you?

My friends constantly inspire and amaze me because of all they do for their families, church callings, homes, etc.

What is your go-to dinner?

Taco Salad

Do you have any cleaning/organizational/motherhood tips?

I didn't invent this, but it works for us.  We used to have a lot of challenges every morning deciding what to wear, so I got the kids hanging sweater organizers.  On Sunday night, they fill it up with outfits for the week so there is no question about what they are wearing each day.


  1. I did notice her beautiful hands! I love the laughing picture. And the organizational it is awesome. I will definitely do this!

  2. Man Melissa is photogenic! Great pics. Sure like that lady. :)

  3. What a great smile she has, it's contagious!
