I’m a recovering type A overachiever with a passion for home improvement projects, marshmallows and the silliness of life.
Growing up as Julie, the only nickname I had was Juls. In college a (nerdy) friend of mine decided that it should be spelled Joules (def: scientific unit of energy) due to my spazzyness. So, it’s been Joules ever since.
I started my blog, Pocketful of Joules, in early 2011 as a place to give marketing and business tips. Since then, it has evolved into so much more — including my story of losing my job only to find one that is so much better for me, pregnancy & mommy craziness, and home improvement projects. It truly has turned into a pocketful of me in blog form.
I have to toot my horn for just a moment — I am incredibly proud to have been published in the Life Well Blogged series, To Bliss and Back.This honor allowed me to fulfill my dream of becoming an actual published writer. Hopefully it is just the first in a long list of (eventual) writing credits! Something else I’m super proud of is that Pocketful of Joules was named a finalist in the 2013 Bloggie Awards under the category of “Best Kept Secret Weblog.”
So, toot toot.
For your cheat sheet into who’s who in the world of Joules: I have a wonderfully awesome husband (Travis), a super adorable baby boy (Jack) and a fabulously cute dog (Potter).
