Hello friends, or soon to be friends! I guess this is where I tell you a little bit about myself:

I am Nina! Wife to Dugan and mom to Walker. My family and I live in Fuquay-Varina, North Carolina with our two dogs, Zoe and Dharma. I had a career in event technology/mobile apps for six years before I decided, two weeks after returning from maternity leave, that being a stay-at-home-mom was my calling.

But before all of that happened…

I started my life in Naperville, Illinois but due to my father’s career, we moved around a lot! We moved from Illinois to Connecticut then onto Colorado before settling here in North Carolina. I attended Salisbury University (on the eastern shore of Maryland – Go Gulls!) where I was lucky enough to play lacrosse. I came back home after graduating and still miss the delicious crab dip on a daily basis.

Outside of being the family CEO, I am also a Bodypump instructor in my “free time” and a contributor for the Raleigh Mom’s Blog. My husband and some friends have been telling me since my son was born in late 2016 that I should start a blog about all the things. So, here we are. June 2018. Better late than never!
