About Me



My name is Nina, and I’m writing from Maine. I’m beginning a (lot) of new chapters in my life and I wanted to share my story. On top of being a newly wed, buying a home, and becoming a new mom, I thought I would try out blogging.

My husband Joe and I got married in July 2016. Our wedding was amazing for a few reasons…the thunderstorm and hail passing by stopped literally minutes before I walked down the aisle, I married my best friend, and we found out one month later that our baby boy began his journey¬†that night.

Before finding out about our baby, we found a home that we fell in love with. Slowly, we are renovating our first home, a 1848 farmhouse. I love decorating and roaming antique shops to fill our old home. The progress is slow, especially with our new baby, but I try to tackle one project at a time.

Days after closing on our house, we found out I was pregnant with our first child. In December 2016, we found out two things. One, we were having a boy, and two, he had transposition of the great arteries, or TGA. TGA is a rare heart disease in which the two main arteries are reversed. He is now healthy and happy and is our biggest adventure.

So, as my life changes drastically and I learn many lessons about being a new mom, wife, and home owner, I hope to inform, inspire, or at the very least, entertain any readers along the way.
