I'm Nikki, a creative old soul who loves tea time, tip-toeing through gardens, mounds of books, swaying to records, watercolors, sunset walks with our three yorkies, and star-gazing with Paul. This blog carries snippets of my life with just us two (five with Rusty, Lucy, & Ethel) - I hope it brings you happiness as you snuggle in with something warm and delicious and begin reading. Enjoy, friends!

Ashley Brooks Editorial Services

Last week I was finally able to spend some time with my lovely cousin. Between our busy work schedules and us going to Alaska and her and her husband going to Europe, I felt like I hadn’t seen her in so long and I was 1. dying to see her and 2. dying to see her remodeled office. When her and her husband bought their house a couple of years ago, it needed help. A lot of help. I am still in awe over the amount of work they have put into it and am always in love with the results of their hard work. Because my cousin works from home as a freelance editor, she was in desperate need of a finished office space. And my goodness, did she get an adorable office. I am so, so proud of Ashley and all the work she has also put into her business. She is a regular blogger, blogging about her personal life, strategies to help writers, resources for writers, and much more – I am always impressed with how she can relate the simplest scenario (like crossing the street in Rome) to writing. With new changes to her home comes new changes with her business because as of right now, she is currently revamping her website and I cannot wait to see the final result. Take a peek at her blog – she’s amazing.

Enjoy a glance into her new office and all of its bookish goods. :)

I could snuggle in here all day.

Isn’t she cute?!

And I love this chair.

Every writer/editor needs their fill of coffee.

Prettiest books on the shelf. :)
