j-flamingo reflections

Inspired by the grace and beauty of the flamingo, my life reflected by my love of reading, writing and creating.


I've been literally dreaming of this blog for way too long. If you can't sleep because you're dreaming about writing blogs then I better just start my personal blog and write it! Tonight is a perfect opportunity anyway because my 2 yr. old isn't asleep yet. So, "ToyStory"is on for her and I feel like writing. Oh, don't worry even if she was asleep I might be writing because I feel like writing a lot lately. I just haven't been very good on following up on that urge. I have a lot of ideas swimming in my head all the time. I just need to focus and get it on the page. In the past, some of my best work has been done in the wee hours of the night when I think too much and can't sleep.
Are you wondering what a "jflamingo" is yet? Well, it's me! I made it up when I decided on what to name my first e-mail account. My name is Julie hence the "j" and I love learning about flamingo's hence "flamingo."
A few things you could know about me already is that I'm an alright wife to Jared and a reasonable mother to our six children and I like that there is never a dull moment around my house. What I also like besides motherhood is that I have other hobbies and interests which add color to who I am. That's vibrant!
On this blog, I'll share my thoughts or another word for that would be my "reflections," on life and what I like best. Or not. We'll just see what happens.
For now, welcome to "Reflections of a jflamingo..."

Welcome Readers~to my blog! A tiny extension of myself and my life. Here, I'll share this journey through my top passions in my life - reading, writing, and creating.

She is pure Alice in Wonderland, and her appearance and demeanor are a nicely judged mix of the Red Queen and a flamingo.
