About Me…

I’ve been married to Dan for 26 years.  We have three wonderful children.  Ashley is 26 and is in the banking industry.  She just graduated from UGA with a degree in Business and just recently had a little girl named Emmaleigh.  Taylor is 20 and in college and pursuing a career in education and works at a daycare, and Adam is 16 and in tenth grade.  Yeah, I know, they’re pretty spread out but it has worked out well that way.  I’m very proud of my family.  In my spare time I like to dabble with the computer.  When you are as old as I am, the techie stuff doesn’t come to you as quick as it does, for example, my kids……..Seems like my family is always gathered around the The Nichols’ Internet Cafe.  I also like to spend time with family and I just have to tell you that I have become a GiGi this year.  You ask what is a GiGi?  Well, don’t tell anyone but it means shhhh (grandma).  I’m just vain enough to think that makes me not old enough to be that g-ma word.  She is my heart that’s for sure.  She is now 4 months old and I love love love that little girl.

Family is what Pike County is all about.  Small town with great schools.  Come check us out!  I can supply you information about the schools as well if you’re interested.

Please just remember to “Call Cathy”  770-584-2716.  I wish you good hunting.
