That is a lovely article.
What a LOVELY article! You’re such an inspiration! I have to say that the best thing about reading your blog is that you don’t trumpet yourself – you simply do what works for you and you share it with us. You make the rest of us feel inspired enough to say, “I think I can do that!” instead of, “I wish my house looked like hers” or “I wish I could have her life.” Thank you!
Great article Nicole! Congrats!
Congrats on the article!! And thank you for the continued inspiration!!
Congratulations! I’m off to read the article now. And also sending you belated Happy 30th Birthday wishes from Connecticut. As a veteran 30 something, these are the best years!
That’s incredible! Great job!
I love reading stories about people who started something for fun, then it turned into a wonderful career! Your home is unique and all you and Brandon! I think that is why you draw so much attention. It’s not one particular style. It’s functional and lived it!
Do you guys plan to live here forever?
I don’t know about forever, but we don’t have plans to move anytime soon.
Congratulations! The article was great.
That article was really good!!
What a great and insightful article! I really enjoyed reading it :)

Congrats! Great article, is it silly of me to mention how cute your hair looks????

Congrats! How exciting!
What a great article! This is awesome! You deserve every kind word written there. Thanks for letting us in to your fun and stylish life :) Can’t wait to see what’s next!
Congratulations on a great article and thank you for inspiring me and I am sure many other mom’s with young children.
Wow! That’s great, how exciting.
So proud are we all faithful followers! Cheers to more good luck (and great PR) in the future
CONGRATULATIONS! This article is great.
A wonderful article. I try and follow your blog pretty closely, but clearly missed that you have another little one on the way! Double congratulations to you both!
That’s great! As a native Oak Parker now living in Los Angeles, I was tickled to see you in the hometown newspaper. Now even my 84-year-old dad, who is an avid reader of the Wed. Journal, knows about MIL!
congrats! and has anyone ever told you that you resemble the progressive insurance lady?
My dad thinks so too.
So exciting! Lovely article. I stumbled upon your blog several months ago and whenever I visit, your posts put a smile on your face (I love your ideas and your color palette) and inspire me to get off my duff and do something creative. You go girl!
Okay – I meant to say, your posts put a smile on MY face not yours!! LOL.
Oak Park is such a nice place!! congrats on the feature!
How nice to read about you “in print.”
You’re such a rockstar, Miss Nicole.
Great article. Congratulations! xoxo
