About this Blog

Join me for a coffee break?

Remember how great it seemed when the characters on the television show Friends would just randomly meet up at the Corner Perk coffee shop? Well, that’s how I like to think of my blog — your virtual corner coffee shop, where you can drop in any time and catch up with friends.

I work full-time as a marketing & communications consultant, so all blogging is done in whatever free time I can squeeze out of my day, which is generally a coffee break (if I’m lucky!).

Sometimes I’m not so lucky, but if you check in once a week, there’s usually a new tidbit here or there. You can also subscribe via my RSS feed, which will alert you when posts go up. Or keep in touch via twitter (@coffeewithjulie).

Blog Topics

Along the top menu bar of the this blog’s homepage, you’ll see the four general categories that I blog about:

Travel: personal travel tales as well as tips for family and adventure travel
Media: chats about theatre, dance, books, television shows and movies
