A Happy Healthy Heart-Meet Melissa

I don’t know about you guys, but food is definitely one of my MAJOR love languages. I love to eat it, make it, watch tv shows about cooking, and sometimes I’m a bit of an emotional eater:) So when I stumbled across Melissa’s Blog this past year,  I was instantly hooked! Just looking at pictures of her food makes me instantly hungry. But that’s not the only reason I love Melissa and all she stands for. She makes sure that all the things she cooks have some type of nutritional value to them, and there are good reasons for you to eat them. Her blog is FULL of goodness and really informational tips and tricks and recipes! Plus she is precious! She’s not only gorgeous, and has the cutest little family, but her heart radiates love and kindness and you can feel and see that just by following along with her on her blog and Instagram. That is a special talent that not everyone has. So please, we want you to have a healthy and HAPPY Heart! So,  check out my new friend Melissa!

Tell us about yourself!

I am a wife, lover of life, plant-based food enthusiast, blogger and believer. I am a North Carolina raised girl who loves everything southern except for the food. I used to love the food but, after marrying my high school sweet heart, I decided to learn a thing or two about nutrition. Since then I have been on a journey of supplying my body with the most nutritious foods available and have loved every second. I started my blog A Happy Healthy Heart in early 2016 and it has become the center of what I do. I am in love with seeing this great big world and travel every chance I get. My husband and life-long soul mate, Wiley and I met in high school and wherever he or I go, the other is never far behind. Our little dog, Tootsie, and our two chickens keep us busy at home and his music and my never ending desire to live, laugh and learn take us to places that we never dreamed we’d go.



What’s your favorite song right now?

I really like Jazz Vocalist from the 1940s. My husband and I fell in love with it on our honeymoon and it’s been my go-to ever since. Speaking of my husband, the music he makes is always close to my heart. I’m his number one fan, but it’s cheating if I claim his as my favorite!

What’s your favorite style to wear?

Classic Elegance. I love pretty things that don’t go out of style.

What’s your guilty pleasure snack-go-to?

It depends on the season, in the summer it’s chips and salsa but right now it’s probably vegan hot chocolate.

What’s your MUST-HAVE beauty item that you can’t live with out? 

Activated Charcoal Face Wash. It’s such a wonderful cleanser and I don’t go a day without using it.

Who’s the most influential person in your life and why?

I have two: my husband, Wiley and my mom, Pat. They both inspire me daily, in different ways and I feel so blessed to have them!

What’s the one thing you want to accomplish that you haven’t yet?

I want to make my brand A Happy Healthy Heart a lifelong journey and wish for it to have the most success that it possibly can.


What’s your favorite thing in your closet?

That’s a hard question. I don’t have one favorite piece but I love a good pair of high heels. I probably have too many but I think each outfit needs a different pair.

What’s your fave inspirational quote? 

“Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart” Psalm 37:4. My hopes and desires are constantly changing but I have one constant belief that never changes and is always steadfast. My faith keeps me going.
