It’s Just Julie

Hey, welcome to my newest adventure… I am so glad you’re here! My name is Julie, I bet you knew that by now. I am the chick behind @littlebarnlittlefarm on Instagram. I decided “It’s Just Julie” was the most fitting name for my blog, but why? Well that’s because my response is always the same when anyone calls me Julia. Plus who knows if we will live in a little barn forever, so I wanted my blog to be a little more personal.

About me… well I’m a 29 (again) mom of 2 babes. I have an incredibly hard working husband. We have a Basset Hound, Wylie, that likes to get into all sorts of mischief that you’ll get to see and hear all sorts of stories about.

My little family & I recently moved to a tiny town in Western Kentucky. We fell in love with the beautiful land, the friendly people, & all of the outdoor activities this area has to offer. We chose Crittenden County after visits to my Dad & Step Mom, Laurie’s. This area just felt like the place we wanted to raise our kids. In May 2017 we found a modest 1500 sqft pole barn for sale with 17 acres. It became ours in August 2017. The renovations were complete in December that same year. I then started blogging about our home with a home decor focus more heavily at the end of July 2018. If you’ve found my blog from Instagram thank you so much for taking the time to come see me here!

Anyway, a few more things about me. If there’s not an alarm set or a note on my hand, I will probably forget it. If my glasses aren’t on my face or my head, I’ve probably lost them. Some times I wear a bunch of make-up & pretend I am elite MUA, skilled at contouring. Sometimes I don’t wear any make-up at all…. it’s called balance. I failed my writing proficiency tests in high school 3 times, so bare with me… What do you mean you don’t put a comma after every breath you take when saying a sentence? I literally asked my college professor this question. If you’ve noticed this struggle since you’ve been here, sorry. I was an LPN for 8 years before becoming a stay at home mom. I’m so thankful I am able to be home and raise my children and I owe all the thanks to my husband.

So, what you can expect to find here? You know, besides misplaced commas… I plan on sharing home decor deals, cleaning tips that I find helpful to me, recipes, mom life, & style, you name it. The sky is the limit girlfriend!

My favorite quote that has been on my heart & has been giving me the drive to share my home & life on social media is, “Nothing ventured, nothing gained”. With all that being said, Here is to the next adventure!

I encourage you to share your favorite motivational quote with me in the comments, or let me know you’ve stopped by.
