Hi all and welcome! I’m excited you’re interested in who’s behind April & October, the blog.
I’m Nikki, the person behind the blog. I’m a 29 year old mixed mama from the Virgin Islands. I spent the majority of my childhood living on St. Thomas. I spent a good number of years moving around a lot, so I’m well versed on moving. I’m also the one behind Birdie & Co, where I make crochet dolls and wrap scrap shoesies from scratch. This blog is the other side of me, what I do when I’m not sewing.
You will hear a lot about my children, Birdie and Tot. They’re the ones that run this house, and boy do they let me know it! Birdie is a 5 year old diva, who doesn’t seem to believe in sleep. She’s quite athletic and participates in multiple sports. Tot is my contemplative, old soul. He just joined the family this past year and he’s been nothing but wonderful. It’s been quite exciting to see him learn and figure things out.
We love to travel (fly, drive, whatever works!) and we totally love to eat. I’m also totally obsessed with baby wearing, so there will be woven wrap reviews. You’ll see a lot of that on April & October.
I live and I blog about it.
