ABOUT THE AUTHOR

As a full-time freelance writer and editor, Nicole has been wearing sweatpants to work since way before coronavirus made it cool. Her past and previous clients include Match.com, Pinterest, and HowStuffWorks. When she isn't arranging and rearranging words, she spends her time knitting, reading, cooking, attempting to cuddle one of her two cats, and embarrassing her teenage children—occasionally on purpose, but more often just by existing.
