I'm Nicole Johnson, and I run this show.  I am a work at home mom that loves Jesus, food, fashion, family, friends, the south, and a good glass of wine.

My husband is Elliot Johnson, and he played professional baseball for 14 years.  He has played at every level, and I've been there through AA (Montgomery Biscuits), AAA (Durham Bulls), and a few Major League teams, the Rays, the Royals, the Braves, and the Indians.  We currently spend our offseasons in Raleigh/Durham.  

We have a 6 year old son, Blake, who is learning the ropes of our crazy lifestyle, and we're learning the ropes of parenting.  We're also learning about travel and baseball with a child that has severe nut allergies. He loves minecraft, reading, playing outside, and his sisters.

In October 2013, we welcomed fraternal twin girls, Hazel Olivia and Skylar Everley, to our entourage.  They are super sweet little ladies that decided they wanted to join the party during the playoffs.  They are beautiful, they love each other, and they LOVE their big brother.  When they aren't fighting over the same toy, they are snuggling and laughing at each other.

We also have a dog, Baxter, that we got the first season we were married, and he's been to more places than most dogs go in their entire life.  He's loyal and protective.  He's my napping buddy, and may be the only person in the house that likes to sleep as much as I do.

To say we have a full house is an understatement!  

Since 2010, there have been several contributors to The Life of the Baseball Wife.  Every now and then, you may see a post pop up from when the blog first came around.  That's because I think that new readers can benefit from them as much as those that have been long-time readers.  Contributors to this blog include:
