Welcome to Julia’s Genuine Life, I am so glad you made it here! While I can’t offer you a hot or cold beverage as I would if you were a guest in my home, I can offer you a lifestyle blog that hopes to provide inspiration for how to live a life with gratitude and kindness.
Topics that are often floating around in my head [in no particular order]: baking, wedding planning, weekend travel, self-care, cooking, style, home decor, organization, relationships.
Go ahead, scroll through the different topic areas, read the titles, and jump to each individual post. Find something you really love or can relate to? I invite you to share the link with a friend or on your social media and tag me @juliasgenuinelife!
Interested in learning more? Take a peek around! Keep scrolling to a handful of my recent posts, a snapshot of my Instagram, and a link to my Pinterest.
Go ahead, stay a while.
