Me and my littles.

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!

    Hi Julie! Love your blog!!! Becoming a housewife is definitely the hardest thing I have ever done but also the most rewarding. I still have trouble with not trying to be Superwoman though…

    Hello June- Thank you for your blog. I am a newly wed, being now married now for 3 days. :-). I know that God is with us and I’m seeking new truths on being a Godly wife. I appreciate your heart felt words and advice. Many blessings. Keep up the great work!

      Thank you for the kind words! I’ve been on a blogging hiatus so please forgive the delayed response. Congratulations on your wedding – and if you’re seeking God’s truths on being a godly wife now, you’re already miles ahead of my newlywed self! He won’t let you down, but something tells me you already know that. God bless 🙂

    Thanks for your comment on my blog. Thanks also for being a housewife. My own wife has been such for most of our 13-year marriage, and to her surprise, she got many “how I wish…” comments from fellow moms.

    Kudos to you.

      How did I miss this? Sorry for the delayed response. Thank you so much for the kind words. I often feel like I’m swimming upstream in choosing this “career,” so I truly appreciate the support. I admire your wife.
