Nichole Trone is a native Oregonian who grew up in the suburbs of Portland. She has traveled from St. Petersburg to Paris, but she always loves coming home. A recent graduate from Brigham Young University, she received her bachelor’s degree in Russian with a minor in editing. Nichole’s interests include cooking, reading, writing, hiking, quilting, gardening, and playing with her dog, Mollie. Someday she would like to renovate a farmhouse and have a large family, but for now she is content to blog about it.
