Welcome to Luxe and blessings to you and your growing family!
I’m so glad you’re here.
My name is Melynda Smith. I was born and raised in South Carolina, spent my 20’s in Los Angeles and currently live in Jacksonville, Florida with my soul mate (he does a great Hank Hill impression) and our three amazing boys- Austin, Bodhi and Harrison. We like camping, music festivals and fart jokes. I'm a writer, educator, hot sauce connoisseur and bibliophile. When I’m not washing a mountain of cloth diapers I like to escape to my favorite local coffee shop (Bold Bean) or check out the latest MOSH exhibit with the kids.
