Fight. It’s an action some encourage and others dissuade. Since the day I was born, fighting has been instilled into my mind. Regardless of your opinion, it’s something we all do. At some point in time, consciously or subconsciously—either emotionally, physically, or spiritually—we struggle. Many will strive to withstand their battles, but only those who were born to fight will overcome them. A true fighter lacks weakness. They abstain from carelessness and refrain from trusting their opponents, but most importantly, they never accept defeat. I am a true born fighter. Each second of every day, I fight. Rip the ones I love most away from me, I kill. If I’ve learned anything from this life, it’s to always expect the unexpected. As long as my heart continues to beat, and no matter the costs, I will be victorious.
Though born and raised in Nashville, TN, Julie resides in a small town in West Virginia. When she isn't busy playing pranks on her handsome and sarcastic husband, she's chauffeur, cook, teacher, coach, and all-too-honest mom to her twin boys and diva daughter. Julie isn't one who enjoys adulting or peopling, but her heart is big enough. She has an unhealthy addiction to coffee, chocolate, wine, cake, unicorns, and rainbows. And when Julie isn't distracted with Facebook and Snapchat (lashes for days), you'll find her fingers racing across a keyboard or her nose stuck in a book.
