Congratulations to Nicole Bateman…this week's recipient of a SLY Award here on Metropolitan Mama.
The world is full of darkness, scary people, and broken hearts. Fortunately, it's also full of people that are kind, good, genuine, and warm - people like Nicole Bateman. She and her husband are both the kind of people that spread care and service to everyone they meet. It's not a contrived kind of thoughtfulness, either - it springs from deep down in their hearts.
Nicole manages to write two blogs [the pixel boutique and confessions of a cropaholic], run a design business and an etsy shop, be a great example for her 3 boys, and be a wonderful friend (all while looking super cute in her awesome thrift store fashion finds, I might add). She's the kind of person who will remember your birthday or bring you chicken soup when you're sick - little acts of hospitality that make a big difference.
Also, of note: Her husband is a police officer. He keeps the bad guys off the streets and helps people in danger, all while staying remarkably tender-hearted (Ex. he loves babies...and is great with kids).
P.S. If you need a designer for your website, blog, twitter page, or etsy shop - be sure to check out Nicole's portfolio. She's super humble about her skills, but her work speaks for itself.
Won’t you join with me as I celebrate Nicole and shower her with two surprise gifts hand-selected just for her? Oh, and YOU will have a chance to win both products too.
If you know Nicole in real life [or if you read one or both of her blogs], please leave a compliment here for her. Let's give her something to smile about today!
