The NY Melrose Family began way back in 2011 when Jenny Melrose started a simple blog to share her journey as a wife and mother working full time while raising two little girls. Jenny wrote about her favorite family recipes, her top cleaning hacks, and her favorite crafts to do with her children.
Jenny's articles and writing style resonated with readers and she quickly rose to fame as a prominent mommy blogger, influencer and entrepreneur. Her goal was simple: write from a place of candor and honesty to bring a little inspiration from her family to yours.
The NY Melrose Family has come a long way since Jenny's solo blogging days.
