My name is Nicki and I am so happy you are here!
Welcome to all of you who cared enough to click on this page! In case you are wondering, I am a mother, career woman, and wife living smack dab in small town America (West Virginia). I have a challenging career as a middle school counselor. I love my job but it takes a lot out of me, and there are days that I ask myself how much longer I can do it. I have three children who are the most important things in my life. The oldest is Delaney, (I call her Miss 18 Year Old), she is a freshman in college (studying fashion merchandising) and drop dead gorgeous (yikes!), who loves to sing, is involved in theater and is a barista at a coffee shop. She hopes to move to NYC one day and pursue a career in fashion.
I am married for 8 years to a wonderful man named Jason (Local Celebrity = LC). I don't know what I did to deserve him, but he has been a Godsend to me and my two oldest children. Especially since they have not seen their biological father for years (a heartbreaking story that I could write a book about, and have often pondered doing). Jason was a local television chief meteorologist (up until December 2014), and very well loved in areas where WBOY-TV channel is broadcast. I often joke that I can't imagine what it would be like to be Brad Pitt, because everywhere we go people are recognizing him and either shouting out, approaching him, or asking what's the weather! I sometimes forget that we are in the public eye, it can be both a pleasure and an annoyance. LC has recently made a complete career change though, and is now a drug rep for Takeda Pharmaceuticals, and just recently started his new job! So I will have to report back to you on how that goes, but so far he is very happy.
From august 2013-June 2014, we hosted a wonderful student from Sweden, who lived with us for 10 months. She is back in Sweden now. but in my heart, she will always be a part of our family.
Sweet Parrish Place is a space for me to share things I love and things that matter to me: the renovation of our house, decorating, design, DIY projects, fashion, travel, my family, the subject of addiction, or anything I find beautiful, pretty, or interesting. I would like to document the changes to our home, and throw in occasional rants about all of the above. Really anything that has absolutely nothing to do with my day-to-day career life. I view this blog as a place for me to go to get away from work and decompress. It is a way to restore my own sanity, and so far it is doing a great job at that! Really, Sweet Parrish Place is me sharing my heart and my life with you! After daydreaming about it for a long time, I decided to give blogging a whirl and follow my bliss. I hope you will join me on my journey!
