My name is Nicole, and I currently work in the accounts receivables department for a security company. (I graduated with a degree in English and still have dreams of writing for a career someday). Then again, that’s what I do… not who I am. I’m absolutely in love with life and trying to enjoy every single moment – from the little moments that are so easily missed to the huge moments, which will be remembered for a life-time (like marrying the man of my dreams).
I don’t want to look back and wish I had done more… or realize that I wished my life away. My goal is to live for the moment and to make the most out of every day.
Most of my blog posts are about life as a young, married woman. I love writing about relationships, because I find that most of us go through similiar ups and downs. Many of you younger couples will probably relate; you more experienced couples will undoubtedly shake your heads and remember how you used to worry about the same, silly things. But for sure, I’ll always be doing my best to find the humor in each experience. And when I can’t, I’ll be searching for the lesson.
Some other blog topics…
Fitness Fridays: Now that my husband and I have moved back to the country, I’m excited about jogging through the quiet streets and just enjoying a more active lifestyle. Because life is so busy, getting back into shape is always an adventure in itself. But it’s a challenge that’s worth it, and I can’t wait to bring on the healthier foods and new work-out routines.
Souper Saturdays: I LOVE how comforting soups are after a busy day… especially during the cold autumn and winter months. So I’m on a mission to find the best soup recipes out there… and to make them, one by one.
Simple Sundays: Reflections. Thoughts.
Mission: Martha — Being creative doesn’t come naturally to me (unless you’re asking me to write), so I’m going to work at it this next year. Although I’ll never come close to Martha Stewart, I’d like to be able to handle a sewing machine, decorate a room with complimenting colors, and dip perfect heart-shaped cookies in chocolate. This is my mission: to stretch myself and find my creative side. It has to be hiding somewhere.
Pancake of the Month — Because life is too short to not experience all the different pancake possibilities out there. 🙂
Cupcake Love — My sister and I are on a mission to learn how to decorate cupcakes. Celebrate — and laugh — along with us.
Nikki’s Picks — Some of my favorite movies, books, beauty products, and foods.
And as always, I’ll be writing about my journey to enjoy the simple things of life!
