Hi! I’m Julianne.

I also answer to mom. Well, more like MOM! or honey the kids are trying to get your attention! I have been a mom for what feels like the beginning of time and might be developing an immunity to the word or perhaps it’s the voices.

To all the mamas, I get you.

I am also a wife, but the hubs calls me honey (dear when he’s annoyed). We’ve been married 18 years! I have knowledge people, and by that, I mean experience—in what NOT to do and say. I still have yet to learn.

To all the wives, I get you too. 

I also go by Mrs. Powers, the substitute teacher. My job requires a whole lot’a inhalin’ and exhalin’ and the ability to accept lots’a hugs. God knows I need them hugs. #hugasub #noseriously #liketoday

To all the teachers, you are my heroes.

Besides Julianne, MOM! honey (or dear) and Mrs. Powers, I am also a hope*writer. I write about real life stuff from mommin’ to married life to mental health. My biggest hope for my readers is this:

You are not alone and you are enough.

Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope. -Maya Angelou
