Ever since we got back from our honeymoon, actually I think it really started during our honeymoon. we have been working NONSTOP. And while we love working because of the effects of that work – helping people and changing lives – we try to take a little break to recharge sometimes. Usually we have a hard time deciding where to …

Nicole Porter Family 0 Comments

I can’t believe how fast this school year crept up on us. Maybe because our summer was packed and we were so busy that we didn’t have time to stop and think! Halle, Maddi and Ashly all started school today and Beckam was so jealous when we dropped them off. He wanted to play on the playground, run through the …

Last week, as I scrolled through Facebook for the 10th time that day (okay…11th!), a video popped up of Ashton Kutcher talking about Uber and Airbnb. The founder of Uber approached Ashton, before it was created, and asked him if he wanted to invest in it. Kutcher thought it was a horrible idea, never thought a black car would be …

A year ago today, our son Beckam was born on Father’s Day. It was so special to celebrate Nic and all he does as a dad on the same day that our son was born. So as our honeymoon approached its end, we flew straight from Rome to Los Angeles and made it just in time to celebrate both Father’s Day …

What do you do after spending three glorious nights in Lake Como? I mean, how do you top that? Seriously, we didn’t have the answer!

Planning an entire wedding in 45 days didn’t leave much time for planning a honeymoon. All we knew on the day of our wedding was that we were going on a honeymoon. Everything else was undecided – what countries we would visit, how we would get there, where we would stay, what we would do. After our magical few days at …
