My name is Nicole and I’m an Illinois native that has been transplanted to Tennessee (and loving it!). I enjoy all things crafty (sewing, knitting, painting, etc) when I’m not doing ministry-type stuff. I work with Infusion Ministries as the US Director of STEPS – a girls’ home in India.
I really enjoy traveling, and want to see as much of the world as possible. So far I’ve been to most of the States, Mexico, Ontario, Turkey, Greece, and Israel. Most recently I been traveling to India to visit all the beautiful little girls that call STEPS their home. You can read all about my adventures in India and those little girls on my India page.
And of course I love my big, cuddly Maine Coon cat, Izzy (short for Istanbul). He’s my 22-pound fuzzball who follows me around like a little shadow.
I was introduced to the world of blogging by my friend Ashley who blogs over at Pencilled Daydream. I enjoy having a place to share my thoughts, musings and stories, as well as have a creative way to express myself.
Some of my favorite stores to share include my many crazy Creature Encounters and experiences of my travels. I love sharing what the Lord is doing in my life as well. Did you know that God writes my name in flowers? Since He showed me, I see it everywhere now – it is so cool!
I am having a lot of fun blogging, and I hope you enjoy reading it!
