Tell us about yourself
My name is Jordana Nicholson but people call me Jordie! I freelance as a digital content creator & stylist and I also call myself a wannabe chef. I've had a passion for styling and cooking since a young age and I hope to one day open a small & intimate restaurant here in Nashville! Food is pretty much my life, ha! I've been living in Nashville now for almost 6 years and this city has so inspired me to chase my dreams. There's such an incredible creative community here and the overflow of talent is crazy! It's a pretty awesome time to be living here.
What do you love about the holidays?
The coziness of it all. Getting to slow down. Getting to spend a lot of time with family and friends....and food...oh the food. But there's something so special about getting to celebrate such a beautiful time of year with your close pals and family members. I look forward to heading home every year and gathering around the table with my loved ones.
What is one of your favorite things to do during the holiday season?
Once there's a chill in the air down here in Nashville, we love just cozying up in the backyard and having bonfires. My husband and I love setting up the projector, hanging up a sheet and watching movies under a bunch of blankets. Or we'll have friends over for dinner where we'll make a big pot of soup, some cider and all sit around the fire enjoying it all. S'mores with peanut butter cups are always a must too.
Why is this special to you?
It's just gives me warm & fuzzy happy feelings, haha! But really. And again, getting to entertain, cook and be with people is just the best feeling. If I could do it all the time, I so would. Serving others is my favorite.
What is your favorite holiday song?
I have multiple favorites! They're all so good...but my top 3 would be:
- Jingle Bells by Bing Crosby & The Andrews Sisters
- O Come, O Come Emmanuel by Penny & Sparrow
- Sister Winter by Sufjan Stevens (anything from his Christmas album is so good)
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone this week. I hope you have lots in your life to be thankful for and I sure do with EMLEE. Thank you to all my followers and loyal friends who help make EMLEE a success all year round. I value and appreciate you so much more than words can say.
All the best,
