Hi. I’m Julia. I’m a homemaker and a freelance writer. Three years ago, I left Corporate America because I was trying (and failing) to be Superwoman. I was rushing and clock-watching and up until 1:00 a.m. folding laundry and feeling the mommy-guilt. I felt the satisfaction of a career canceled out by the pervasive sense that I was missing things more important.
So I left my career to care for children, home and hearth. It was one of the hardest, scariest things I’ve ever done, and BOY did I experience culture shock – but I loved it. Since then, however, my littles have gone on to school (sniff), leaving me with plenty of time (hahaha – or so I thought), so I rolled up my sleeves and started writing again.
I’m trying my best to blend my loves. So many women make it look easy; you won’t find that here. Here, I fumble every day. Especially the day I left the water running in the plugged laundry tub for a half-hour, but I digress. I am learning to balance and embrace all the things that make this life worthwhile. I’m learning to be the best wife I can be. I’m learning to be a better mom. I’m growing in my spirituality. I’m writing. I’m sewing. I’m cooking. I’m reading. I’m Being June.
I’m sharing my escapades here in the hopes that my readers may learn from my failures, my successes, or just be highly entertained.
If I can help you in any way, don’t hesitate to contact me at juliaannweston(at)gmail(dot)com. Thanks for visiting!
