profile_croppedHello! My name is Julie. I’m a collector of secret moments and powerful words and sticky kid hugs and belly laughs. I love nothing more than those little surprise moments tucked away next to the everyday ones – the moments or words or images that stop us in our tracks and make us suddenly see the world through a different lens.

I don’t know where these moments come from (or rather, I do, but there are so many names and ideas for it out there that I’d prefer to just say they come from the Great Beyond.) The delivery is all the more impactful because of the ordinary source – kids, dogs, songs, complete strangers, books… This blog is an attempt to capture the ones that I see. I hope you’ll share yours as well!
