Natasha is 1/6 of the Nicholes clan who live in the heart of the city. She's a mother of four and the wife of a husband she met in 8th grade. These days, instead of dates to the library, she spends her time homeschooling 3/4 of her children while worrying that her older 1/4 is growing up too fast. She also likes fractions, reading, crime shows, sewing, and touring her city. Passionate about being heard, she started blogging when she found out she was having twins. Now she blogs because she's addicted.
