The Journal

The Sweet Melissa Journal is a quarterly publication with a focus on seasonal living, recipes, rituals, kitchen, home & garden. Each issue is meant to inspire a slower, more comforting life while embracing the changing seasons.

Thoughtfully & intentionally created by founder Melissa Miller—all design, photography, illustrations, and words are her own.


"I picture you sitting with a cup of coffee, flipping through the journal...being inspired for the months ahead. My hope is to offer a respite from the chaos many of us deal with in everyday life."

Throughout this issue, you’ll find fresh kitchen tips to jumpstart your spring cleaning, a heartfelt piece about the joy of gardening, a spotlight on slow mornings, a delicious strawberry latte, plus the cover feature with a beautiful fresh floral bouquet and Neapolitan layer cake.

The Journal is available in both print & digital versions—52 pages with recipes, articles, and heartfelt words to inspire you each season. Printed in the U.S. with high quality matte cover + heavyweight paper—the Journal is meant to be kept & displayed. The content is timeless in nature, no ads, and created with the hopes you can step away from the chaos of everyday life & social media to take a moment for yourself.

The premiere issue of the Sweet Melissa Journal is an ode to new beginnings—highlighting the gentle reawakening nature and freshness of spring.
