Bragging Rights



I was never blessed with children of my own. I have two brothers who married dear girls and each family produced a daughter and a son. My two nieces and nephews became the center of my life and helped overcome my infertility woes. Today, each has grown into a fantastic adult and produced children of their own. In an earlier post, I bragged about Brandi, my first-born niece, and her teaching award. Today I will unabashedly brag about Nicole. BTW, my name is Jacqueline Diane - my first niece is named Brandi Diane and my second niece is Jacqueline Nicole - cool, huh?! Nicole is an interior designer - she earned her degree at Samford University and went on to earn her professional ASID standing and I am so proud of her! For two consecutive years, she was selected to design the interiors of Montgomery's Idea Houses. She did beautiful work and made the cover of the magazines! She is now beginning work on the 2008 Idea House. And in between all of this, she is a mom to precious Taylor who will be two in July. She has so many other accomplishments that it would take a day to name them all. Did I mention that I am proud??

How cool that you're so close to your nieces and nephews. And, obviously, they adore you.

I'm thinking you've played a huge positive role in your nieces and nephews lives. More people should be so close to family like that!!

This is so cool! The design on the cover is hers? I love the mixture of the old with the modern.

And you should be proud. That is quite an accomplishment. Does she offer decorating advise when she visits? I think that is wonderful that you shared that with us. She must also be proud to have an aunt as loving as you.
