Melissa INN Maine – Let Go of The Perfect

Melissa INN Maine – Let Go of The Perfect

So much to fill you in on from the beautiful place by the sea. It feels like summer camp here.  I remember my mother dropping me off at Camp Carter for the week in the summers.  I'd play, create and swim all day long returning to my cabin at night looking like...

Hanging out with Holley – The Finale

Since September 2017, I have been writing fashion articles for Home with a Twist.  When Melissa asked me to write fashion articles for her blog, my first response was… “I don’t know how to do that”.   Now, over 250 articles later, I must admit…it became my passion. ...

Hospitality is in my DNA. I founded Home with a Twist, a daughter’s twist on her mother’s traditions, in memory of my mother to celebrate her life and the gifts she shared with me. Mother loved to celebrate life’s occasions – big and small.

She taught me how to prepare fabulous food, entertain guests with style and design a traditional home with a pop of color and a splash of animal print. Share my fondness of blending Mother’s mid-century style with a modern spin.

Mrs. Twist Takes on Instagram

The power of social media. I know it gets a bad wrap because some of what's shared is harsh and hurtful. But I thank social sharing for meeting people like Lisa.

She found me through my friend Jennifer @jenniferdimplesandtangles and started following my #MelissaINNMaine journey. She booked a stay at my Inn with her husband to celebrate their wedding anniversary. Imagine my joy when she checked in and said she was in Ogunquit because of me!

Everyday unveils new surprises, experiences and reflections. I love what I'm doing and so proud of myself for stepping into the unknown. 

Thank you Lisa for making me the happiest innkeeper in the world.

Breakfast is served! Look at my adorable monogrammed #MelissaINNMaine apron from my former co-workers. I keep all my stuff in the pockets. It's fun to wear it while I serve our daily breakfasts at the Inn!

I'm still sending out batches of postcards from Maine. If you want to be added to the list click on the link in my bio.

So much to celebrate this weekend. Twenty-five years ago I promised to love Doug and I thank God everyday He helped us find each other.

Time flies when you're having fun. Our life together has had its share of sorrows but there's always a rainbow guiding us to happy times and hopefully another 25!🌈

𝗠𝘆 𝗻𝗲𝘄 𝗳𝗮𝘃𝗼𝗿𝗶𝘁𝗲. Each day I learn or do something new as #MelissaINNMaine I say to myself, but mostly outloud, "I love this the best!" 

Well, this morning as I strolled our beautiful gardens picking forsythia and daffodils to make posies for our dining tables I felt the peace of knowing this is good for me. Some days there are growing pains but there are more moments of joy and happiness.

The flowers in the village are bursting with color. I love these Jonquils with their sunny orange centers. I picked this for a guest who checked in last night.

The New England spring lasts much longer than what we are used to in Texas.  Many rainy days and milder temps will bring us a glorious garden. I can't wait to make bouquets for our guests to enjoy during their stay.

𝗟𝗼𝗼𝗸 𝘄𝗵𝗮𝘁'𝘀 𝗳𝗼𝗿 𝗯𝗿𝗲𝗮𝗸𝗳𝗮𝘀𝘁! I worked my first breakfast service today. It was so fun hosting our guests - a group of precious gals from the south! It made me feel all warm and fuzzy meeting them. 

We served a new addition to our menu - chocolate biscuits with orange butter and fudge sauce. Isn't the presentation stunning!

𝗦𝗵𝗲𝗹𝗹 𝗦𝗲𝗲𝗸𝗲𝗿𝘀. I feel my mother's spirit everywhere but especially here in Ogunquit.

When I was little I would accompany Mother on her early morning walks on the beach when we'd vacation in Galveston. Holding my hand in hers she'd say, "If you want to collect the finest shells you must get up very early each morning before they are all picked over by the shell seekers.”

I remembered her message as I walked the beach early one morning last week. I have a new blog post up sharing more memories of my parents and the lessons I'm learning now. Link in the bio to read.

𝗧𝗵𝗲 𝗺𝗼𝗱𝗲𝗿𝗻 𝗘𝗮𝘀𝘁𝗲𝗿 𝗯𝗮𝘀𝗸𝗲𝘁. I found this beautiful Japanese teacup yesterday in a thrift store while I was exploring my new neighborhood. 

I decided to up-cycle my treasure into an Easter basket with a twist. I filled it with grass, chocolate covered eggs and adorable @lindt_usa  chicks and sheep. 

Gift someone by wrapping it in cellophane with a ribbon or place cups on the table as a treat for your guests.

Happy 🐣 Easter and to new beginnings.

𝗕𝗲𝗮𝘂𝘁𝗶𝗳𝘂𝗹 𝗽𝗹𝗮𝗰𝗲 𝗯𝘆 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝘀𝗲𝗮. Ogunquit, Maine is my happy place. I will be standing in front of this gorgeous property next week! Pinch me. 

The award-winning Trellis House is where I first stayed many years ago.  Sophisticated flair, Maine charm, laid back garden-meets-beach luxury and named by Trip Advisor as the ninth best B&B/Inn in the USA. 

Next door is their newest property The Blue Shutters Inn & Studios. That's where I will live until November - steps away from the ocean.

I'll share more soon. In the meantime visit @thetrellishouse to book your stay so I can give you a hug. I'm a Mainer y'all!

𝗧𝗲𝗮 𝘁𝗶𝗺𝗲 𝘄𝗶𝘁𝗵 𝗳𝗿𝗶𝗲𝗻𝗱𝘀. I started collecting Franciscan Desert Rose last year when I shopped estate sales. I was drawn to the vintage pattern, but more so because I like to imagine the women who loved setting their tables, serving Sunday suppers and making memories. 

I gathered some goodies from @hurleyhouse and made a pot of Earl Gray tea. My girlfriends gathered by the fire and we talked for hours about life, children, joys and sorrows.
