Hi! I’m Melissa and for the past 4 1/2 years I have been one half of a podcasting duo called Cohesive Home. In that span of time my friend Kate and I plunged head first into some really great topics that covered many areas of minimalism and simple living. We took those topics and shared our own take on them with a few interviews sprinkled in here and there. Those four years were amazing and we are both so grateful for that time to work together and the growth we shared both in our friendship and in business learning. However, now is the time to start a new journey and what better way to do that than with YOU! I am excited to share your story, the minimalists, the small space dwellers, the low waste movement pioneers. We all have a story to share, we all have a path we are on and I’m excited to bring wisdom and experience from others just like you to the airwaves.

A little about me: I’m 29 years old, just kidding, I’m 37. I have three kids and a teacher husband. We currently live in Fort Worth, Texas. We started our minimalism journey right before we sold all of our belongings and moved our family to Germany. (You can read more about that here) We have been back in the states for 4 years now and I miss Europe every day.

If you’re into the Enneagram, I am a 7. Like really a 7. If you know what I’m talking about, you already know me well. =)

I love wine.

I’m a virgo, but it literally means nothing to me. But I would like for it to mean something.

We are Catholic, but didn’t grow up that way.

I have a brother. He is way cooler than me.

I love dance music.

Feel free to drop me a line here or chat with me on instagram!! Come say hi! @melissarisenhoover
