About

Hi, I’m Julie, an elementary school teacher, and new mom to a 13-month-old toddler named William. Originally from St. Louis, I ended up in Chicago 6 years ago for graduate school. As luck would have it, I moved in right next door to my high school sweetheart and the rest is history. We have been happily married for 2 years.

I put my teaching career on hold to stay home with Will and it was the best decision I ever made. I love being a part of his daily milestones and other fantastic firsts.

Like most new moms, I’m constantly looking for ways to stay busy, which is why I decided to start this blog. I wanted to share my experiences as a new mom, and offer my reviews of baby-friendly activities in Chicago.
