Hi! I’m Nicole; wife, mother, and animal lover living in North Carolina. My family and I relocated here from New England a couple years ago; we find it nice, but still miss all the northeast has to offer. At the moment, we are blessed to have another bundle of joy joining us in January 2017; and we won’t be finding out the gender in advance! So fun!
I started Live, Love, Drink Wine. in order to be home with my Munchkin more; I love being home with him and spending time as a family. I became whole the day I had him. It really is amazing how becoming a mother can bring the best of yourself forward! We love beach days, camping trips, and spending time with friends and family. I love to cook; there is nothing better than delicious food. I love to share my recipes with you, as well as any time-saving management tools for a busy family. Although working part time, I have done the full time schedule and know how hard the juggle can be at dinner time.
I graduated with my BS in Zoology from NC State and have a monster obsession with marine mammals and the ocean. I had had some amazing experiences alongside marine mammals and their caretakers that have really made an impact in my life! I support all matters of conservation and research and am hoping to do more work in the field at some point. I hope to inspire my children to care about nature and the animals living around them. My goal is to educate them, get them involved in environmental/animal events, and give them experiences that will stay with them for a lifetime. Since I do love animals and nature so much, you may see some posts on my site every now and then outlining my views; please feel free to engage in conversation, but please always remember to keep an open mind :).
I am also a server, part time; have been for many years. It’s such an easy way to make extra money; plus I get more quality time with my family. So, every now and then you may see a ranting post about proper restaurant etiquette or positive experiences I had with my guests.
I love sharing my journey and being able to connect with such a wonderful community of parents, animal lovers, other New Englanders, and anyone else interested in great conversation and connection. I love hearing from readers so please feel free to contact me at any time! You can email me directly at Nicole@livelovedrinkwine.com or you can fill out the contact form below. Whichever you prefer :).
Thank you for visiting and I hope you enjoy my site!
