About Me

Greetings! I live in a small town in southeastern Minnesota with my husband and two adorable cats, Biscuit and Pearl.

I work full-time in marketing at a Senior Living Community. I have experience writing web content and press releases as well as blogs. I freelance for local magazines in the Rochester area. When I’m not writing you can find me reading, making a healthy meal, running, hiking, biking, kayaking or snowshoeing. If it’s an activity that requires lots of energy, I’m hooked.

    • Hi Lisa,

      You are so kind! I was surprised at how much you appreciate my thoughts and words. I can’t thank you enough for your support and readership. It’s difficult to put yourself out there and it is always nice to know that it inspires someone. I love to read your reflections on life; your prose is poetic and engaging. Thank you for sharing.

      I imagine that you are an incredible mother and wife. I look forward to reading more of your posts! Keep them coming 🙂


  1. Hi Nicole, it’s great to find you in WordPress! Your cats are so adorable. I am sure I will enjoy your blog for long run – still have to catch up with your blog 🙂
    Keep writing for magazine! It feels like I am talking to myself, I should start to write for magazine again, my motivation is bit low nowadays 😀 – You did great by having some of your articles published in several magazines. So inspiring!
    Have a wonderful day!!

    • Hi Indah,

      Yes, I love writing for magazines. I have been very fortunate to work with editors who send me assignments. I don’t know how long that will last, so, I try to appreciate every assignment that I receive.

      I am glad you found my blog, I hope you enjoy it. I can’t wait to read more from you too! Have a wonderful weekend! 🙂

  2. Hi! Thank you for the follow to my blog.
    I have a good reason to follow yours: I like the name Whispering Pen. I think something does whisper to us little ideas. But then it’s up to us to create. It might not be today or tomorrow, but the idea has been planted. 🙂

    I have a good reason not to follow you too: You are a fitness instructor and I will feel guilty every time I read your blog. 🙁 But maybe that is good too. 🙂

    • Hi! Thanks so much for reading and commenting. Please don’t feel guilty about working out. It’s a lifestyle for me…it always has been. 🙂 I am glad you like the name of my blog. I think it fits me just fine. If you listen you can hear creativity whispering to you.

      Best wishes,

    • Hi!
      Thank you so much for the nomination! I appreciate it! I don’t want to sound ungrateful in any way, but I do not participate in the awards. I love that you think my blog is worthy of an award!! 🙂

      Have a great week!

  3. Last night, I dreamed about using an old fountain pen, and it made such a nice sound as I wrote with it. Then, your blog name popped up in my inbox today. I love these little coincidences.

    Oh, and I love your cats. 🙂 Yvonne

  4. Hey, thanks for finding my blog and stopping by! Your seems great, so I will follow it now and hope you will follow back. It is nice to see new people here!
