I got a text message from Nicole. “This is going to sound weird, but do you want to guest blog for me? I can’t write about me well, so maybe you can.” So here I am, ten hours later writing my first ever blog post.
Nicole as “Nicole.” She goes by the nickname Nikki around her friends and
family. Only my dad still calls her Nicole in English, and my side of the
family when we speak french. Let’s be honest, Nicole in french is so much cuter
than NiCOLE in english.
I’m Max. You probably know me in this blog as “the boyfriend.” If you’ve been
keeping up to date with her blog, I am the one who proudly coined the term “BLOGMERGENCY” last week, after proofing a recent blog post.
As we were winterizing pools throughout the day, I thought
of three things you should know when it comes to the photographer you are
hopefully dreaming of hiring. One of Nikki’s best traits is the willingness to
try new things. My mom is a foodie, Nikki never had the pleasure of eating many
foods that sound weird but are actually amazing. The ONLY thing she has refused to try with my
mom is smoked salmon.
had a rocky day until she knows everything is forgiven. She is the most loving,
loyal person I know. She cannot bare saying goodnight with either one of us mad at each other. In my defense, I am very
much the “let me sleep on it, I can’t think straight when I’m tired, everything
is always forgiven by sunrise” type. We could have the worst of fights but I
will always be a friend again by morning. Nikki does not give up on somebody
she loves, let me tell you that much. I’ve tried to fix things my way many
times but never got to that point. She is very persistent and always finishes
what she starts, no matter how tough things get.
continously working on ways to make her business better. I am a graduate from a
program called Materials and Operations Management. One of our core principles
are Demings 14 points; which includes “improve constantly and forever the
system of service.” From constantly tweaking her website to looking at
different ways to provide a welcome package, she always wants to make the
wedding experience something you will never forget. More importantly, what she
does now isn’t enough. It’s never good enough, when in reality, it’s amazing.
I’m always stunned at how far she’s come
and the plans she has for the near future. Keep reading the blog to see what
she has around the corner!
- She took Auto Shop in high school (if you know
anything about me, how can I not love that?)
- She can’t eat anything with cilantro without
tasting soap (apparently its genetic)
- She watches Top Gear with me every week (and
- She is so cute when she has a pony tail (I mean
seriously how can you not resist?)
- She was offered a horse named Balzano for free
but couldn’t afford board at the time (one of her biggest regrets)
- She can master just about anything in a
heartbeat (she even played the french horn but quickly got bored)
- She took sailing lessons from yours truly @ LDSC (and kicked butt!)
