A perfect summer day is when the sun is shining, the breeze is blowing, the birds are singing, and the lawn mower is broken. - James Dent

About Nike:

It was snowing in California on the late spring day that Nike was born, and her life has been full of unexpected surprises ever since. Despite being born into snow (okay, maybe not literally into snow, but there was snow outside the hospital), Nike hates the cold and especially scraping ice off her windshield, but loves Cafe Rio and Caesar salads. She loves doing pretty much everything with her husband, especially dancing, reading and decorating their new condo. One of her heroes is Marjorie Pay Hinckley. Nike is a big fan of girl-power, sleeping and not watching football games for more than two minutes.

Nike got her name from the ancient Greek goddess of victory, and she likes being victorious as opposed to not. (And, yes, she does also tend to be a walking Nike [the athletic wear company] ad.) If you'd like to talk to Nike about raindrops on roses, whiskers on kittens or brown paper packages tied up with strings (or anything else, if you can think of anything better than those things), e-mail her at nike.triumph at gmail dot com (nike.victory was already taken!).
