On the Move | Meet Nicole Series

In any given moment we have two options: to step forward into growth or step back into safety.

Life has been moving so fast lately, and changing at a breakneck speed. I have done less than a stellar job keeping all you lovely supporters of my work in the loop. So hear goes:

Two months ago we received a letter in the mail that was going to change our life and create a sense of adventure we haven't yet quite met as a family. For me, change is exciting, but ever so terrifying! All the suspense, but I promise it is all good news.

My wonderfully handsome and incredibly smart husband got accepted into the Medical Lab Tech program at VCU (Go Rams!), in Richmond, Va. Since receiving his acceptance letter, we have been in a flurry of purging, cleaning, packing, staging, and selling our house. Which also means the adventure continued with more purging and packing, then a long distance search for a place to live in a new city, the actual move, and then the unpacking. Phew!

We are still unpacking, but I wanted to say how grateful we are for all of my family and friends who have been ever present and wonderful helping us each step of the way! We would not have gotten through without our tribe!

What I am most excited about: I will officially be a work from home mommy. This means more time for me, family, and my business!!! I love that I will be able to be more present for my daughter. She already blows my mind; I can't wait to teach her, and her teach me. Seriously stoked! I am also thrilled that I will be able to better support my husband to pursue his dream. Last, this transition also means that I will be a full time small business entrepreneur, birth photographer and identity brand designer. Again stoked! I love serving and empowering children, parents, and parentrepeneurs! My heart is full, thank you.
