Hiya! I’m Jules and I am the Weekend Housewife… I am a graphic designer from 9-5 during the week and the rest of my time is spent being a mommy, a wife, a cook and baker, a memory keeper and photographer and a crafter. Even though I love being a designer, my real passion is creating a warm and loving household for my family. I take pride in enriching our lives with wholesome meals created from scratch, planning fun family outings and themed parties to celebrate the joys of life, as well as documenting the good and the bad parts of our lives through photography and memory keeping. Other things that I am passionate about include gardening (we have a 12′ x 20′ vegetable garden and various flower gardens), organization, cleaning, decorating and reading.
I am married to a wonderful man named Michael and we have a beautiful son named Shawn. We live about a 1/2 hour away from Buffalo, NY and we both grew up only 2 blocks away from each other but never knew it. We have been inseparable since our very 1st date in 2000 and even when I went off to college 3 1/2 hours away, he would come and see me every other weekend. Even though he can drive me crazy at times, I couldn’t imagine life without him.
I began blogging way back in 2002 and I continued until I had our son in December 2008. I really enjoyed it and have met some of the most wonderful people in blog land and I am looking forward to making this new blog a fun and exciting place for everyone. Make sure you come back often as I will be adding new stuff daily.
