Looking back, the year 2015 was pretty good to our family. We really enjoyed the little adventures that life brought us this year, and have felt gratitude for the growth we experienced through the challenges we faced as well. The year started out nicely, wi...
My six year old always starts with "Sleep is boring, there's nothing to do," and ends with, "but I'm scared Mommy" and the lyrics to this lullaby are very typical of how I respond.

I used to write articles about budget fashion for Examiner.com, but have moved my writing to focus on more personal projects of late. I.E. I'm currently working on a novel that is based on a story that I wrote when I was 14. I'm hoping to illustrate some of my stories, so I've been attending a critique group for the past 7 or so years, enjoying the advice & company of some amazing local artists & hoping something will rub off. I don't really care if I'm ever published, I'm doing this for me. I want to finish something. I want to create the kind of book that inspired me when I was young. I'm also doing this for my kids. I also really enjoy writing poetry and song lyrics for fun, and have been dabbling in music composition and arrangements.
Another hobby that I give a lot of time to is sewing. I used to create custom costumes for my Etsy shop. Currently I'm working with a local lady on prototypes for her clothing new line.
I also love cooking & it's been quite a journey for me. I am very familiar with the trials different food sensitivities & have come a long way in figuring out delicious recipes that won't make myself or others in my family feel unwell. I post some of these adventures on my Julie Surprise blog which may become a youtube channel in the future. I'm all about keeping it things close to nature, I birthed all of my babies using hypno-birthing, my two younger girls were at-home water-births. Feel free to ask about any of the above mentioned topics, I'm happy to share my experience. Namaste ~Julie :}
