I'm Julie, the wife to Chris and mama to two sweet adorable boys and our sweet baby girl! I met my husband, Chris, before I even could drive---and yes, we are high school sweethearts! We got married in July 2006 and have moved all up and down the East Coast---although we are both originally from the good ole state of Iowa. After living in Washington, DC and the waterfront of Jersey City, NJ and the coastal town of Fairfield, CT and central suburban NJ (where I met Courtney!)...we are taking our next adventure in life living right outside Washington, DC. We recently bought a house & are glad to be able to say "home sweet home" after moving over and over again for the past ten years!
Before I had children, I was an elementary teacher where I was blessed to work with so many wonderful children. Right now, I am a stay at home to my three kids. I LOVE it---although it is no easy job! No day is ever the same and I can't ever predict what our day may consist of: park visits, lots of book reading, walks around the block, play dates with friends, library trips, and SO much more. With three young children at home most of the day, I spend most of the day managing daily household tasks, playing more Legos and dolls, and reading Clifford and Curious George. Some days, I am lucky enough to sneak in a quick shower or check my email!
I LOVE being home with my kids, but most of my friends would describe me as a person who is most content when I am doing things. I love to run and exercise, as long as I have enough energy. I love to read, especially on a rainy Sunday afternoon. I love to do crafts---or at least attempt to! I have redeveloped a new passion for decorating and organizing since moving into our new house. I love some ridiculous television shows. I love to travel---most of our vacations involve visiting grandparents and extended family since we live far from everyone we know but am always excited to find a little time to get away from our daily norm. I love spending time with friends for girls' nights out and any other excuse to take a few minutes away of being "mama"!
