Hi, I’m Julie. I love to travel, learn new things, and share my experiences. Friends are always telling me, “you should write a book.” Instead I thought, “why not a blog?” This way I hope to make some new friends and perhaps learn a few new things along the way. A little more about me. I’m 55, and a lifelong Missourian. I’m married with a son 30, a daughter 25, and a husband I adore. I am an educator who is well known for wearing costumes to school, even when it’s not necessary. When I’m not teaching, I try to be outdoors adventuring. My goals are simple: never take life for granted, seek to elevate, and above all else, choose kindness.
