About me

My name is Julia and I started writing a blog just to reach out to others, make new friends and share ideas about life, fun stuff, and frustrations as well.  I am married with a beautiful little girl that was born May 2006 and joined our family through an open adoption.   I was actually there at her birth and it was an amazing experience.  We consider all of her birthfamily as our extended family and are grateful beyond words.  

I have a BA in Sociology and a MA in Counseling Psychology with and emphasis on marriage and family counseling.   I’ve worked with battered women, abused children, homeless women and children, at a community correctional facility, & other non-profit counseling agencies.  Currently I am a full time stay at home mom and I love it.  

My interests are really surrounding writing, photography, artful things, and I love the northern coast of CA.  The place I feel most complete is the Mendocino, CA area.  I’m hoping that at some point we will be able to move there permanently.  

When I met my husband, Michael he was a full time potter and made beautiful functional porcelain pottery.  Early in our marriage he taught himself how to code websites and ended up getting an amazing job at a large corp. doing web “stuff”.  His current fun thing to do on the side is:http://www.tinyfreehouse.com  Recently we were interviewed by a reporter from the NY Times about his project and I think the article is coming out August 22, 2008.  I’ll post when it does.  

My biggest struggle in life is being overweight.  So if I blog a lot about getting healthy you’ll understand why.  I’m working on this and I am not ever going to give up until I am successful!  I will do it too!  I don’t know how right at this moment, but I do know for sure that I will accomplish this and it will change my life in so many wonderful ways.  

Please leave me a comment from time to time if something I said moves you to do so.  I look forward to hearing from you.

  1. Thank you a lot for giving everyone an extraordinarily pleasant opportunity to read in detail from this website. It is usually so brilliant and packed with a good time for me personally and my office colleagues to search the blog at the very least three times every week to study the latest stuff you have. And lastly, we are at all times motivated with all the gorgeous pointers served by you. Selected 3 ideas on this page are in reality the best I have had.
