Nikki Boots grew up in sunny, Orange County, Calif. a place known for sunshine, surf beaches and even Disneyland resort. However, Boots says of all the places she's lived, Crawfordsville is her favorite.
"Everyone's always asking me . . .'Why did you come to Crawfordsville?', And actually, from all the places I've lived . . . and I've moved a lot . . . I really like this the most. There's so much nature," said Boots. "I think that the core of the values here are more family oriented, I just love it here."
After graduating high school, Boots attended Purdue University earning her Ph. D in Instructional Design. It was during this time she met the love of her life and future husband, Kyle Boots. Kyle was a graduate of Southmont High School. He also spent time as a coach and teacher at Southmont. 
The couple married and follow their careers to the East Coast. The Boots spent a few years in New Hampshire and Boston, Mass.
After some difficulty conceiving, Nikki was elated to share with us that they are expecting twins! The Boots babies are due in March 2018. With babies on the way, the couple headed back to Crawfordsville this past September. The couple wanted to move to Montgomery County to raise their family. 
"Kyle is from here and so he knows a lot of people. I think it's been a great experience for me. Also, I have all his family here so that makes it nice too," Boots said.
Boots was looking to do something that would give her more flexibility after the babies arrive.
Question of the Week:

A little time has passed since the county commissioners brought planning and zoning back up. However, the emotions involved have not seemed to cool off yet. Readers overwhelmingly voted in favor of planning and zoning in an earlier poll and we want to see if anything has changed since then. So our question this week is do you support planning and zoning for Montgomery County?
