Carpe Diem!

Hi, my name is Nicole and I have been thinking about starting a blog for awhile now, so today is the day! Carpe Diem! πŸ™‚ This blog will cover a lot of topics (marriage, parenting, food, fun, fashion, photography, reviews, etc.) and I will post about things that make me happy in my everyday life.

A little bit about me…I am married to my high school sweetheart, Jason, and we have two boys, Grant and Luke. Jason and I celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary in February and I love being married to my best friend! Grant (20) and Luke (18) keep us busy and it’s an interesting adventure parenting “adult” children who still live at home. πŸ˜‰ My hobbies include photography, traveling, water sports, boating, exercising and living a healthy lifestyle, and spending time with my family and friends.

In the Fall of 2013, I went back to college to pursue a degree in Graphic Communications and I am working on it a couple of classes at a time. I don’t want to be so swamped from classes that I can’t enjoy time with my husband, family, and friends, so I’m taking it slow in order to be able to live a full, BIG life!

As you get to know me, feel free to ask me questions or leave a comment. I do not tolerate rude or disrespectful people in real life and I will not put up with it on my blog either, so this is your warning that I will delete anything of that nature.

Please be patient with me as I figure out the blogging world…this is all new to me and I’m learning as I go! πŸ™‚

    • Thanks, Erin! Love you too, girl! I was just thinking the other day of all of those photos that we took of ourselves on the very rainy 8th grade class trip to the Cubs game in Chicago! I’ll have to see if I can find them sometime…talk about some throwback selfies! πŸ˜‰ We’ve come a long way together! πŸ’—
