About Julie

blog shot

I’m an Ottawa local. A working mother of two children, aged 11 and 5. And a wife for 18 years now. I love being all of these things and I’ll tend to chat about them in my blog a lot (under the general categories of living or family).

My big passion is travel. Our family simply cannot get enough of this world! We are always dreaming and planning the next trip. Often this is an outdoor adventure, but it might also be a whirlwind trip to New York City or a week lazing on the beach. We like to mix-it-up a lot, sometimes taking solo trips while other times we do big family trips (our children are excellent little travellers!). I also share travel tales as the Canadian Editor of Road Trips for Families.

But hey, one can’t be travelling all the time, so I keep my daydreams active by catching local theatre and dance performances and by reading blogs, books and magazines, which I also share here on the blog (under the general category of media).

My 9-to-5 (yeah, I know, the concept of 9-5 doesn’t really exist anymore does it?) life has included cubicle-life in both private and public sectors, agency work, freelance work, and consulting contracts. So, no, my blog doesn’t pay my mortgage. It’s more of a labour of love. And fun. Don’t forget the fun!
