Nicole is a born and raised Westchester area girl. She grew up in Garrison, and now lives in Cortlandt Manor with her husband and two little guys, and most of her big, fat, Greek/Italian family. You can usually find her in the Dunkin Donuts drive thru, eating half-eaten chicken nugget scraps, sneaking in very bad reality TV binges, pinning things on Pinterest that she will never actually make, or trying to correctly pronounce dinosaur names. You can reach Nicole at nicole{at}westchestercountymomsblog{dot}com.
