Mrs. Coastal States International®

Melisa Zwilling

1.When you hear the saying "be the change" what comes to your mind first?
Family. I love my family more than I could possibly articulate. My husband has taught me what it's like to love and be loved wholeheartedly and my children allow me to experience love and happiness beyond comprehension every day.

2.How would you describe your husband?
Project Runway is actually the only TV program I watch. I really dislike all of the negative drama that's so prevalent on TV nowadays. I enjoy the creativity that Project Runway inspires and I appreciate the opportunities for hard-working, talented designers to achieve dreams that might otherwise be impossible.

3.If you could revisit one memory as a child in your mind, what would it be and why?
I never slow down. I don't want to miss a single experience or opportunity. Life is shorter than most of us would like and I don't want to look back one day on a list of "should haves." Sometimes I wish I could do absolutely nothing for a while though.

4.How would someone describe you when you were in high school?
It isn't what you get, but what you give in life that really matters. It's easy to become so consumed with our own lives that we see right past others in need. A tremendous amount of joy can be found in helping others and making the world a better place.

5.If money did not matter.. what would you buy for your husband and why?
Saturday. I usually wake up to my son's sweet voice saying "Mommy, I'm awake." After some tickle fun, we get his sister and go downstairs. Our family plays together for a few hours then my daughter and I go ride horses. Afterwards, it's more family time then "family movie night."
