Hi, I'm Melanie.

I'm a rock & roll photographer, coffee addict, NPR & BBC junkie, punk rock runner, and glass half-full person, born and raised in the American South. I live in downtown St. Petersburg, Florida with my dog, Foxy, and Foxy's dog, Oliver.

This is a blog about cultivating a happy, healthy life, saying yes as often as possible, and rocking every single little moment. Read more here.
