I’m Julie, a 20-something girl from the Gulf coast living in west Texas with my husband, Tye, and our daughter, Elodie. I love nights spent in the kitchen with a bottle of wine. I become overly attached to fictional characters. I dabble in photography. Sometimes I pretend that I’m Julia Child…okay, this happens a lot. I am convinced that one can never have too many books or cozy blankets. I consume copious amount of coffee and tea. I love having fresh flowers around the house. I am obsessed with copper cookware, but I don’t own any. I eat a piece of dark chocolate almost everyday. I love the smell of old books and lavender. I am a firm believer that a salty breeze and the sea can cure just about anything. I have a weakness for crusty French bread, artisan cheeses, and good champagne. I haven’t been everywhere, but it’s on my list. I own entirely too many striped shirts. And most importantly, I am a sinner saved by the redemptive grace of Jesus.
