The Real Me

The real me is a city girl that loves the country.  I truly LOVE all things homemade, old, seasoned, stories. I love it!  I want to go to church and worship God and sit back with a cold one by a fire if I want to. I want to be the REAL me, not a certain me on Sunday mornings, but on a Friday night I am someone else.  I don't need constant social gatherings or sitting around talking about how much I just spent on a new pair of jeans or a purse.  I need the 3 people in this house to love me and I need my husband for the rest of my life.  I need to go to our deer lease even though I would really like to be at a Macy's one day sale.  I need to be home baking cookies and watering my plants.  I don't NEED all these crazy things I see people needing around me.  I truly LOVE spending my Friday and Saturday nights with my husband and kids.  I am truly blessed and I thank God every day for those blessings and for taking the glasses off of my eyes and letting me see who my real friends are around me, that want the same things I do.  And friends that forgive me when I stumble, not judge me.  I am so thankful!

We ended our Spring Break with our son at our deer lease. (Our daughter stayed back with a family friend all weekend). We bathed under the stars, watched the Super Moon, road four wheelers, ate at the County Seat Cafe and just had an amazing East Texas Weekend.

This is Me, Then.


  1. well julie, the real you is a pretty cool person! i'm happy to call you my friend :)what a great way to end spring break.

  2. You need to be who you are Julie, all the time! I use a saying freaquently and I try toalways remember it when I feel the same way.... "the people that matter don't mind, and the people that mind don't matter". You are a wonderful person with a great heart that is fun to be around! You shouldn't feel like you have to be two different people.
