Melissa Temling

Melissa is a DFW girl through and through. She was born and raised in Plano, Texas, bravely made her way south of 635 to attend SMU and is now loving life in the sweet little town of McKinney with her husband, Mike, their little girl, Elyse, and three puppies. Once they welcomed Elyse in late 2014, Melissa chose to leave her director role at a digital advertising agency and be home full time. It didn’t take long before she was squeezing in every creative outlet she could between library and play dates. Melissa is now proud to be an avid cook and recipe creator (the husband always asks for seconds), a sweet-toothed baker (nothing goes unclaimed), party addict (there’s always a reason for a party), flower arranger (just because they make her smile) and laid back hostess with the mostess. Melissa shares her creative explorations on her blog at Fun, Yum & Frills and on Instagram at @funyumandfrills .
