Hi. I'm Julia and I'm an approval addict. It's been a life-long thing for me and it's something I'm working on lately. So, you're choosing to BLOG about it? Not exactly. I just thought that I'd try to be as transparent with you as possible. It seems throughout my days I've tried many things. However, I never seem to have the patience and follow-through to get really good at much of anything... I just seem to get "passionately average" about too many things (music, photography, gardening, cooking, tennis...). The irony is, I learn so many wonderful life lessons from my "so-so" dabblings in all of these fun things that I REALLY want to share with my friends, but my people-pleasing nature makes me feel that I'm inadequate to pass on these tips. So, I clam up, and I leave this little blog (that I am also SO passionate about) lonely and photo-less, blah, blah, blah.... you get where I'm going now. So, I'm giving myself a fresh start. From now on, this blog will never be perfect before it "goes live." It will always "be," just like I am (whether or not I like it), a "work in progress." Please take time to look around when you are here. I have some changes in mind and I am making them little by little. I have already started a pretty thorough spring cleaning of the page and this week I hope to get some photos up for you all. If you have any suggestions for me, please comment - I would really LOVE the help! Many thanks for suffering through!
