Exploring Life’s nooks & crannies… literally and figuratively.
My name is Nikki, and I have led a transient life. In the past 6 years, I moved from northern Virginia to coastal Carolina, to southern Georgia, to Okinawa, Japan, to southern California with my husband and feline fur babies, Momo and Tetsu. Don’t even get me started on my nomadic childhood 🙂
This blog gives me a medium in which to share the adventures, epiphanies, and thoughts of my journey — big and small. It also serves to update friends and family scattered all over the globe. It keeps me connected, introspective, and contemplative as my definitions of home and self continue to evolve.
I currently live in sunny California and plan to stick around for a little while. Maybe someday I will settle. But in the meantime, I’m making the most of my nomadic existence by exploring the world around me, whether it’s a foreign country, a different state, a new city, or even my own backyard. Not to mention, my own state of mind!
If there’s one thing I’ve learned over the years, it’s to expect the unexpected. Life is full of adventures and surprises, simply brimming with nooks and crannies waiting to be discovered.
