My name is Julie and I love to write. So that's what I've been doing for as long as I can remember. Writing and telling stories and learning about people because every face has a story.
If you'd like to learn a little about mine, I'm finding out that while I like to sprinkle a little here and a little there in my blog posts, I could do well to include more about my everyday life. I'm a dreamer and a thinker and sometimes I get carried away with thoughts and ideas. This happens in real life sometimes, too. I don't particularly like small talk. I was almost a journalist once, mainly because you get to ask people lots of questions.
In no particular order, here are a few other things about me:
What I Like To Do: A great day is one spent with friends, in the sunshine, or of course writing. Possibly all three at the beach somewhere...
I like playing sports. Particularly tennis and basketball. And I play a mean game of ping-pong...I didn't realize until lately how much I still enjoy basketball. Kids often think this is funny and don't believe me. Until I beat them at our pick-up game.
Where I Live: North Carolina never gets old to me. Although somehow I've still not gotten around the state too much in the six plus years I've lived here. I'm working on it. I like southern accents and try and claim one myself but no one buys it.
I was born in the south, though. I think that should count?!
Who I Am: Daughter, sister, friend, and most of all, child of God.
I'm a counselor, lover of all things ice-cream and ice-cream-like, and in my heart of hearts, I'm a writer.
I like working with teens and hope to put together a book for them sometime soon.
This blog is a place to test out ideas, to share stories, and to interact with YOU because I like you already.
I don't have it all together and don't pretend to.
But, Jesus is the one who brings hope amidst hard places. Yes, He works all things for good.
I know it's good to be alive...and to fully live.
Thanks for coming by. I hope you'll stay awhile.
