My name is Julie Hess and I’m the 30 something year old mother of 3 children; Connor 10, Gracie 6 and Emma 20 months. I’m married to my wonderful husband of 13 years, Chris who works in the financial industry (don’t ask too many questions….he’s explained what he does to me too many times to count and I still sound like I’m 8 trying to describe what my dad does for a living…”he goes to work and does money stuff….”). I was born in Long Beach, California and went to high school with Snoop Dogg and Cameron Diaz, but I wasn’t friends or anything, it just sounds cool to say. We moved to Flower Mound, TX in October 2003 and love it here. My family is still all in So Cal and Chris’s family is almost all in the Phoenix area of Arizona. I have never blogged or anything remotely like it, so we’ll see how it goes!
