Welcome!

My name is Nicole Marques and this is my blog!

I am married to Richard, who is the love of my life, and I am a mother to two beautiful children, Gabriel and Emily. Without these three-amazing people in my life, I would have lost the battle a long time ago. We are currently living back in our hometown Toronto, Ontario after living two short years in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

I love watching home renovations shows – I’m actually addicted! I enjoy watching TV in general, shows like Grey’s Anatomy, How to Get Away with Murder, Blue Bloods, This Is Us, Two Broke Girls. And yes, I have some guilty pleasures, Talk Shows, all of them! OH! And who doesn’t watch Say Yes to The Dress?! GUILTY!

I also, once upon a time, was an avid scrap booker. I really miss having the time and space, on my own, to complete beautiful scrapbooks. I enjoy painting abstracts and being creative in general. Although it’s been awhile since I have taken time to complete some works of art on my own, I’ve become a pretty good crafter with my kids.

Now, to the good stuff. I am a Crohnie. I have Crohn’s Disease. I have been battling this illness since 2004 and I continue to battle until a cure is found. I, unfortunately, don’t battle for me, though I’m working on the whole self love piece. I, instead, battle for my family. I do not want to give up the fight because of my husband and my children. I want to be around for them. I want to be the best mom and wife I can be – physically, mentally, and emotionally.

Thank you for joining me on my new blogging adventure!
