Melinda was the nerd in the real estate office who would rather be writing property descriptions than out showing houses. See, she’s a natural-born writer—her dad used to call her with good inspiring quotes and her mom used to love reading to her as a kid. After working in various marketing gigs, a friend convinced her to write a blog—and it was her avid readers who gave her confidence in her voice. Putting short, arresting, inspiring expressions onto paper was the next natural step. Now each one of her quirky little snippets goes through an “operating room” full of wonderful specialists—passionate paper people, graphic designers, printers and framers—before it ever lands on your doorstep.
