My name is Julie Ferrare. I am a wife, a mother, and a teacher, among other roles that I play in my life. I have three children, ages 7, 5, and 2, who keep me pretty busy. When I’m not changing a diaper, buckling kids into the minivan, or reading a story about Disney princesses, well, then, I’m probably folding laundry, sweeping up a mess, or making somebody a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. So I decided to take a little time for myself by writing this blog. I hope you will keep coming back to read more about the people and experiences who have had the strongest influences on me.
