Hello and welcome! My name is Nicole and I am mom to a toddler boy named Dominik and baby girl named Vera, wife to my wonderful husband Kelley, and parent of our two fur babies, Mia and Sugar. I have 8 years experience working with small children, a BA in History, and a Masters in Education. I used to be an art teacher, but am now a stay at home mom. Child development, nutrition, green living, art, and food are all passions of mine and I started this blog as a way to share my experiences as a mom and woman doing her best to live naturally and frugally. Enjoy!
