About Me

Oh hi there. Nice to “see” you. My name is well I don’t use my real name around these parts but you can call me Nolie. In real life, many people call me Nolie as well. I guess you could say it is my nickname.


I supposed if you are clicking on the About page you are curious as to who I am. I am a daughter, a mom and a wife. I am also a retired blogger who has decided to come out of retirement. That is why you see that link up above titled The Archives – Pre 2018. I quit blogging really back in 2016 but it took me another two years to actually admit it and enter into retirement.

Retirement didn’t suit me though so I am back. The difference between then and now, I will no longer censor myself. I will not write posts worrying about it costing me a paid gig. I am blogging for the love of blogging and want to share my life, I am not blogging for the almighty dollar. Though hey if you wanna pay me or have me review something knowing who I am and what to expect then hit me up and let’s talk 😉

Our Crazy Family

So who is Nolie and her family? My new tagline is ~2 Boys, 2 dogs, 1 cat, 1 Grandma~ which pretty much sums it up. My husband Tobei and I are the parents of two pretty darn special boys. Big Brother is 10 and Little Brother is 6. Little Brother was recently diagnosed with ADHD and I am pretty darn sure there will be another diagnosis as well somewhere down the line.

Two years ago my mom moved in with us. She has fibromyalgia pretty damn bad and was no longer able to live on her own. When she moved in she brought with her Echo (a chihuahua), Sophie (a bichon frise) and Precious (a 20-year-old cat who still looks like a kitten. And there you have the 2 dogs, 1 cat, 1 Grandma part of the tagline.

So there you have it. A little bit about me and my family. Feel free to subscribe, bookmark or follow me on social media (links above) to learn more as the blog posts roll out. Also please reach out and say I. Would love to meet you and well maybe know I am not talking to myself around these parts.
