The Long About Me

I honestly hate "about me's". Not your about me, just mine. I feel super weird about schmoozing myself up and stuff. However, I'm gonna do it anyway.

My name is Lisa Schultz- Nickle. Yes. Like the coin. Except spelled differently. I think. I really like blog titles with meaning hence all the silly references to Nickels. Nickles? 5 Cents? Get it?

Also, according to Wikipedia which is totally a trusted source:
"My two cents" (2¢) and its longer version "put my two cents in" is a United States (US) idiomatic expression,  taken from the original English idiom expression: to put in "my two pennies worth" or "my two-penn'orth." It is used to preface the tentative stating of one’s opinion. By deprecating the opinion to follow – suggesting its value is only two cents, a very small amount – the user of the phrase hopes to lessen the impact of a possibly contentious statement, showing politeness and humility. However, it is also sometimes used with irony when expressing a strongly felt opinion. The phrase is also used out of habit to preface uncontentious opinions.”
I've been blogging since before blogging was cool. I'm talking EasyJournal to MySpace and then finally here in 2008. Check out my Myspace label for the blogs I brought over from there.

I made it big in 2012 with my most popular post on break-up songs. Since then I've created a few other popular posts which have driven the traffic on my blog up quite a bit. HOWEVER, that's not why I'm here.

The purpose of my blog right now, is to document life! All aspects of it! A few of those important aspects which you will probably come across while you're here: 
  • My kiddos. 
  • Relationships
  • Rona
  • Religion (deconstruction)
  • Homeschooling
  • Travel
  • Tees
  • Party planning and Design
  • Digital and Paper Invitations/Announcements
  • Crunchy/Granola Things

We currently live in Colorado and are loving every single moment of it. Except some of them. We came from living overseas and that provided us a lot of opportunity to travel and a lot of topics to blog about so you're gonna see a lot of that too! 

Life flipped upside down in 2020 as it did for so many people. I will write about all of those things. Hang tight, it's gonna be a fun ride! 

Thanks for making it this far. It's nice to meet you.
