Hello there! For those of you who don’t know I’m Juliann. I grew up in California, went to college in Oregon and 6 years ago packed up and moved to Texas. I’ve built a life here with good friends, who I now consider family, and a dream job I didn’t even know how to dream up!

A few more specifics about me-13227677_10100816781754921_972065330500600837_o 13716187_10100857828297321_1450750571759806007_nI have a dog. She’s an all white Siberian husky. And she’s pretty spoiled. Although She’s almost gone up for sale a few times for destroying my things, I wouldn’t trade her for anything.

And the most important thing about me? I love Jesus, and I strive to live my showing his love to everyone I meet.

My goals for the month are simple. 1. Start running again and be able to run 1.5 miles easily. And 2. Participate in at least half of the blogtember prompts.

 

Happy Monday!

It’s Monday!!!! I know I know that usually elicits  a groan from most people. But I am not most people today… Because I found a reason to make it being Monday something to look forward too! Want to know what it is? Well then keep on reading!

I have homemade beef stew simmering in my croc-pot as we speak… So I know that my apartment is going to smell amazing when I get home from work and walk through the door! And I also know that I am going to have a bomb-digaty dinner tonight!

I actually started simmering the stew last night. I put the broth and meat on low overnight (per my wonderful Mom’s instructions), so the meat would get extra tender! So that also meant that I woke up to an amazing smelling apartment… And on a Monday morning that’s totally enough to take that normal groan and turn it into anticipation and excitement!

So if you have a reoccurring case of the Monday’s you should try making beef stew! It just might cure you for a week or two!
