Who am I...

My name is Julie...I have struggles just like every other single parent out there! Some of these struggles are funny, some are not so funny and some are even a little embarassing. One thing I think all of my struggles have in common...they are worth sharing! I have been a single parent for almost four years now and this blog will show you the ups, downs and everyday humor associated with this new venture in my life.

But before we start, I think it is very important for you to know who I have become these past four years of my life. These traits didn't necessarily come easily, but I am truly grateful that I have become someone who is...
  • Passionate about raising my two young sons to be motivated, compassionate, caring young men who love God, life and themselves equally

  • Excited about my future and what it holds

  • Someone who loves living life to the fullest

  • Adjusting to the ups and downs of being a single parent

  • Struggling with the balance of being a good Christian woman with being a fun, outgoing single woman with confidence and spunk

  • Forgiving, hopeful, happy and well adjusted in most areas of my life

  • Enjoying the process of learning new things

  • Rediscovering things I had long forgotten

  • Learning to laugh again

  • Looking for that one special man who will love me for me


So with that being said, welcome to my blog about the musings of one single, hard working, mom attempting to juggle two kids, a full time job, one blog, umpteen loads of laundry and the ups and and downs of a thirty something woman thrust into the world of being single again. Here I will write about all of the above and anything else that inspires me from fashion to motherhood to men to dating to reality TV. You name it, I will talk about it!

I hope you enjoy reading this blog as much as I enjoy writing it. I hope these stories make you laugh as they have often made me laugh!
