Hello world!

This blog has been a long time coming and I am so excited to have a home on the internet. After following my blog from this point forward, I hope you are excited too!

Who am I? And what is The Elegant Machine?

In short, my name is Mel and I am a former architectural designer and current registered dietitian in the great (but very hot) city of Austin, Texas. For lots more about me, visit my about.me page and my website.  You can also follow me on Facebook.
