Who is she?

If we were meeting in real life I’d secretly text your name to myself, and I think this explains who I am at my core: incredibly Type A, always a little anxious, but still just a smidge of a mess.

I’m a 33-year-old content creator and ammeter DIY-er. My husband, Lance, and I lived in St. Louis, Missouri, for years until we had our daughter in 2020. After years of IVF and failed infertility procedures we finally got pregnant on an IUI and decided to move to our hometown — Springfield, Illinois — and purchase my childhood home.

Care to know more? I was named after a Beatles song. I once won a cat-themed outfit contest. My house is always cluttered. I collect creepy old Santas. I replaced cigarettes with Starbucks, so I talk about my coffee too much. Outside of the site I’m a freelance writer and marketer. I’m not a fitness girlie at my core, but I’m sweating my ass off in Pilates pretending I sort of kind of like it. I’d really like more mom friends. I swear too much. I’ve been told that I’m “the loud one.”

I aim to post on Oh Julia Ann three days per week: Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Here you’ll find outfit ideas, hostessing tips, cocktail recipes, DIY projects, home renovation content, and a lot of lame puns. You’re welcome in advance.
