About Me!

Hi, I’m Melissa

I’m a writer, vlogger, dreamer, wanderluster, peace loving hippie. I am a homemaker and stay-at-home mom to 5 children ages 10 and under. We homeschool and travel full-time, living in our RV. We have remodeled our RV and made the most use out of our tiny space. Now, I’m sharing the ups and downs of living on the road, the secrets and hacks of how we make our small space work for so many people, and the wild adventure of life we’re living. Join me in my journey.

Who is Hippie Sweetheart?

Hippie Sweetheart is ME! I’m Melissa, I’m a writer and tiny home enthusiast. I’m a homemaker and stay-at-home mom to 5 children ages 10 and under. We homeschool and travel full-time, living in our RV. I love vlogging sharing our traveling journey, RV tricks, tips, hacks, and ideas. 
got a hippie soul and love traveling, writing, reading, homeschooling, tiny living, minimalism, cooking, budgeting, and embracing the adventure life has to offer.
I grew up in a small town nearby Cleveland, Ohio. After I met my husband, we left Cleveland, but stayed in Ohio up until we bought our RV. My husband, who already worked as a nurse, got a job as a traveling nurse. With the company he works for, he takes a new nursing assignment every 3 months at the location of his choice. We also learned about the growing number of people who were giving up their traditional homes to travel and full-time RV. We hit the road in Spring 2016 and have spent the past year traveling the country as a family, living in our RV. Eventually, we’d like to settle down on a homestead.
I’m currently working on a few different books. I am writing some non-fiction about life on the road, minimalism, and tiny living. I’m also working on a contemporary romance series. The first one is in the editing phase. I’m looking forward to finishing up these projects and sharing them with you!

About Hippie Sweetheart

Hippie Sweetheart began in March 2017 as a way to inspire and encourage others and to share our RVing adventures, interior ideas, tips, tricks, and hacks with others. Also, as a place to share my writing projects and progress. It began as a way to share our home and our travels with family and friends and has grown quickly. We love that this has become a source of inspiration for so many people.
Hippie Sweetheart is a site to share our love of homeschooling, traveling and minimalistic lifestyle with others. We are eager and excited to expand and build, sharing my books and writing and our wild, tiny living adventure with you.
