Welcome to Spinach and Sprinkles. I’m Julie and you can follow on my daily path to finding the sprinkles of joy and health everywhere. My name means ‘youthful one’ and my mother found this out years later and said, ‘Well, that answers a lot of things…’
I’ve decided that welcoming you into my shoe closet is the VERY best way to get to know me. Brace yourself. This is big. However if you did come to my house and look in my closet, I’d probably scream and pick things up and tell you that this isn’t the way it normally looks. So, lets do this on-line, it’s much prettier this way…
Welcome to Julie’s shoe closet…
Item #1 in Julie’s shoe closet: Red high heels
These beauties are my wedding shoes. I love pretty shoes! Classic with a touch of wild at the end of my wedding dress. Wearing shoes like this makes me feel like a better woman. I am classic with a touch of unexpected color.
Item #2 in Julie’s shoe closet: Running shoes
These would be my running shoes. I value fitness and the ability to be active. I am thankful daily that God has blessed me with a body that works as well as it does. Don’t get too excited, I run but I am not a runner. Wish I was… I am physically active and love to get a good sweat on! I love how it makes me feel like I’ve done something. I’m planning on reaching for a 5K in the fall.
Item #3 in Julie’s shoe closet: Boots
I am a farm girl at heart. I grew up outside a very small town in Northwest Kansas on a large farm. My whole family worked night and day to make sure that our crops, cows, and whole farm were running smoothly. I wouldn’t trade it for the world; I value that I grew up chasing cows, farm kittens, and my older sister on occasion. Almost nothing makes me happier than getting my boots dirty (especially if it’s cow crap, sorry that was too far… I just love working with the cattle. They are my favorite) When I put on my boots I feel at home and ready to work (or do some dancing)
Item #4 in Julie’s Shoe Closet: Flats! (dress flats to be exact)
I am one tall girl, racking in at 5′ 10 ish…. I love high heels, truly, I do…. but there has to be a place in my heart for flats, for MANY reasons. I am an elementary school teacher, lower elementary for the time being; so when I bend down to help them, I hate that my knees are up to my eyeballs. They hurt when you are on them walking around 7 year olds all day and the kids find them to be intemidating, for real. Plus, I have a couple of inches on the other half and I don’t need to emphasize how friggin tall I am…. Alas, the flats!
Item # 5 in Julie’s Shoe Closet: Flip-Flops!
What girl doesn’t own every color of flip flops? They are my summer go-to and I love that they just wash off when I’ve been in my garden. Easy, no fuss, and classic!
I hope you enjoyed the look into my shoe closet! I can’t wait to hear from all of you and how you live your joy filled lives!
Also, I let you all in a little more in my post “Who lives like this?!!?” It goes through my journey to the coast and how my heart drew me back to the midwest. You should read it, it has cows in it 🙂 And a pretty sunset or two….
Welcome and feel free to speak up! I promise to be nice. 🙂
