As before, I’ve taken the opportunity to “hack” my wife’s site and share with you my admiration and appreciation for the amazing woman that is even more cherished on this special day.

Happy Mother’s Day
to my beautiful and incredible wife.


I always knew that Nichole would be an extraordinary mother.  I knew that she had been a nanny before and formed an incredible bond with those lucky children.  But when I was able to witness her as a nanny to a family with two lovely girls, I knew in the depths of my soul that I wanted this woman to be the mother of my children.

I saw the way she nurtured and loved those girls and the way they responded with their affection and devotion.  I saw the way she educated and taught them to be strong, confident and respectful little girls.  I saw the way she was tender and generous of spirit and the way she gave herself to their happiness and protection.  But moreover, I saw the sparkle in her eyes and the love in her heart that showed me beyond measure that she would be an incredible mother.

And…..she is.  She is everything I could want for my children….and more.  Thank you, Nichole, for being who you are and being everything to this family, to our children, and to me.  We all love you and cherish you.  Enjoy this special day.


I also want to wish a very Happy Mother’s Day to those of Nichole’s amazing readers who are being celebrated today.  May you be pampered and appreciated by all that love you.

    Craig, craig, craig…. I'm sitting on the floor of the Atlanta airport with my laptop… doing my best to disguise tears. :-) Nichole is such a special person to me (and I've never met the broad), so I can only imagine what an impact she makes in real life. This was really, REALLY sweet.

    Happy Mother's Day, Nichole! :-)

    I hope your Mother's Day was glorious…although with Craig behind it? I know it was.
