Good morning, Boss Babes! We hope you’re feeling rested & ready for a new week full of opportunities for growth. We have something new & fab for you. From now on, each Monday we’ll share an interview with a Boss Babe from around the world. This interview series is called “Mugs Monday” and is meant to feel like you’re out for a cup of coffee with an awesome lady you admire & you’re getting to know her and the city she lives in and loves. 

Our very first Mugs Monday interview is with photographer Kari Nichols of Cottonwood Studios Photography. She lives in Strasbourg, France with her husband and business partner, Caleb. They work in France and New York mostly, but travel as often as they can. I met her in The Rising Tide Society’s Facebook group and wanted to hear all about her life in France & the visa process and she was kind enough to answer all my questions. This was in the beginning planning stages of Boss Babe Club and I’m so glad to call her a friend. I hope to meet Kari IRL to have coffee at one of her favorite shops one day! Enjoy her words & have an amazing Monday. Stay boss. xx

What’s in your mug? Cappuccinos if possible.

Do you prefer late nights or early mornings? Late nights that become early mornings.... I go to sleep around 5 a.m.

What’s a song that immediately puts you in a great mood? “Congratulations” by Post Malone or “Audition” from La La Land.

What’s your favorite movie? Midnight in Paris. 

What's your favorite place to meet for coffee? Café Bretelles in Strasbourg or Oslo in New York.
