About Me

Twin mom. Wife. Accountant. Scrapbooker. Cardmaker. Nap sneaker.

My bio from my website:

Julia is a twin mom. Wife. Accountant. Scrapbooker. Card maker. And self-proclaimed nap sneaker.

She is the proud mommy of boy/girl twins. She is also a full-time accountant that works outside the home in Corporate America. She holds an Associate' and Bachelor’s degree in Accounting and just recently earned her Master's degree in Accounting.

Julia prides herself on not being a “typical” boring accountant.

A former amateur drag racer, she loves to scrapbook, make cards, cook and read. She also enjoys spending time with her family, redecorating her house and traveling with the twins to new – and old – places.

Julia blogs at Mini Van Dreams about life with twins, scrapbooking, card making, easy recipes, blog tutorials, reviews, giveaways and anything else that crosses her path.

She recently became involved with social good endeavors through her blog and is now a member of the elite Global Team of 200 and a Monkey Do Project Blog Ambassador. She has also had several featured articles/posts on various websites, including Feed the Future, What to Expect, and US Aid.

She is impetuous, sassy, and a trooper.

She laughs her way through life.

She sleeps when she can sneak it in.
