  1. These kinds of things are always so enjoyable to read. You learn so much about someone. You may learn about things you have in common with the person (I, too, have never seen Star Wars!) or things that you never would have guessed (Never gonna ask Nicole to arm wrestle!)

    Love this! Thanks for letting us get to know you a little better, Nicole.
