Random Facts about Nicole
I am a wife and the mother of two ridiculously beautiful boys. Despite being adorable, they are not crazy about having their pictures taken.
I come from a big, extended, pieced-together American-style family. I have 5 sisters, 10 nieces and 3 nephews. I’ve been an aunt since the age of 10 and I LOVE IT. I love babies… I love every age. The sweet, curled up, sleepy newborn. The first smiles of a 2 or 3 month old. The 6 month old who just learned to sit and will laugh at silly noises. The 9 month old who’s on the move that I have to chase around. The freshly independent 1 yr old, ready to walk and play like a toddler. I love babies too much. If I could, I’d keep having them myself. I can’t though, so I’ll have to play with yours.
I love old things. Old movies, old jewelry, old buildings.
My biggest pet peeve is rudeness. It just seems unnecessary. Can’t everyone just be nice to each other and pleasant?
In 2003 I completed a Summer internship as a New Product Development intern at Converse, Inc. You’re likely to see me in Converse shoes in all types and colors. Even when I wear dressier shoes, I wear flats most of the time, despite being under 5’4″. I’m still about 4 inches taller than my mother!
I love making chocolate truffles. If you have a shoot with me in the wintertime, there’s a good chance you’ll get to try one. I usually make hundreds during the holidays.
I could eat sushi every day.
Native plants and the butterflies that they support greatly interest me. I’ve spent a lot of time reading and learning about them. If you’d like to attract more butterflies to your yard, let me know. I’d be happy to help you figure out what plants to grow!
