Hi! I’m J. And actually a lot my friends do call me J – it’s not just me using my initials to protect my secret identity (my real name is Julia, if you want to know).
I was born in Germany, spent the first part of my childhood in Colorado, but grew up in New Mexico, went to school in Indiana (Saint Mary’s College), and now live in Minnesota. I always thought I’d end up back in the Southwest after school, but a job offer brought me to Minnesota where I met and married a Canadian, and now I can never live in a place without ice and snow. Seems odd for a girl who used to go barefoot well into the “winter” of NM, but true love makes you do crazy things!
I have the two most amazing children. They are funny, brilliant, and indisputably adorable. You can expect a thousand stories. I know the bragging may get tiresome for some people, but I’ll make no apologies. My only wish is that, if you have kids, you think they are as incredible as I think mine are.
You can get more insight if you check out What is A Perfect Day? And of course, you’ll get to know me through my stories and rants in here!
