Hi! I'm Julie.
I am a sassy, creative, encouraging, smilely, sarcastic, intuitive, caring, silly, strong-willed, spirited, out-going, out-spoken Oklahoma gal who loves Jesus!
I am married to my best friend and the best man I know. Since I get to be his wife, I'm certain I must be Jesus' favorite! :) Together, we have a crazy awesome, blended family made up of some crazy, awesome humans... 2 sons, 3 daughters, a son-in-law, 2 daughter-in-laws, 2 grandsons, and 3 granddaughters. Wow! That's a mouthful and a very interesting mix, but I love it and truly get a high when I'm with my babies. How cool it is to have them as my friends too!
I'm a sucker for sunshine, succullents, beaches, and my grandbabies. I have a weakness for pink himalayan sea salt, chocoalate covered nuts, chips & salsa, and Kung-Fu Girl wine. Decorating is a life-long love affair of mine and it brings me joy to offer my gifts to others. I'm an 80's girl who has eclectic music tastes... I'm a little bit country and a little bit rock-in-roll, along with everything in between. Talking to strangers and making them smile is kinda my jam. I have a real fondness for blingy things and high heel shoes, but I totally appreciate a good pair of yoga pants and messy bun too. I'm a fan of The Voice, Bull, This is Us, and Fixer Upper. I truly admire and appreciate my parents and my brothers. I'm a collector of markers, notepads and journals (the more colorful the better). I'm a total quote-a-holic and love finding new ones that speak to me each day. Oils are a new obsession, along with making healthier choices for me and my world. I'm a lover and a fighter. And I'm a perfectionist and a slob rolled up into one.
Since I was very young, I have loved Jesus. Early in life, I chose a personal relationship with Him, however, I was raised in a home where allllll the churchy things were forced upon me and, I will admit, I didn't like it much. Because I'm a bit stubborn and strong-willed, I typically didn't accept what was introduced or expected of me right away. I had to find my own way. My personality can tend to be a bit of a rule breaker with a rebellious streak, so there was lots of "But Why?". I definitely don't live in a black & white world, even though the one I was raised in appeared to be just that. My world, however, is full of lots of color... and sometimes I color outside of the lines! I will admit, I often have to learn #allthethings the hard way. In part, that is what inspired Breakfast Epiphanies.
As I share my "Moments of Revelation", I pray you will read something you identify with and connect to. I hope you laugh, gain insight, know you aren't alone, feel emboldened & motivated, find something that moves you and perhaps glean a little hope if you are sitting in the midst of a battle or heartache.
THANKS FOR SHARING THIS JOURNEY WITH ME!
