Today call me chaotic…

Today call me chaotic…which indeed I am, having just hosted my mother and father-in-law, two sisters-in-law, two nephews, two nieces and one dog-in-law for a wonderful week in honor of Bill’s mother’s birthday.

Together with my family of four and our two dogs, this made for a grand total of thirteen people and three dogs under one roof over a period of seven days.

Chaotic. Plus also awesome.

And I’m lucky beyond words to have married into such a wonderful family.

Still, the last of our guests are leaving today and I feel the need to keep the chaos going. Which is why I’m thrilled to be visiting Jamie Walker at Chosen Chaos today as a part of her If I Could Turn Back Time series where I have a “talk” to my 18-year-old self.

So please visit Old Julie talking to Young Julie, then stick around Jamie’s place and check out Facebook and twitter to learn more about her.

You won’t be sorry. She’s one of those people who feels like a lifelong friend after only a few email exchanges. She’s that cool.

She’s a wife, mother of four, a blogger and a runner with excellent taste in music and beverages.

In other words, I love her. And you will, too.

So go there. Now.

And embrace the chaos. I dare you.

  1. I loved your post. I loved your photo. xo

  2. Chaos is just for the cool kids! I wih you were really at my place and not just my www place. But I’ll take what I can get! Thank you!!!

  3. My advice to my 18 year old self? Wear more sunblock on my neck.

  4. Hey, Julie! I’m so happy you had such a great time with your family! How awesome you are to play hostess! 🙂 Off to Jamie’s now…

  5. We live in a 3 bedroom house and have four kids, but I always want family to stay with us – the more the merrier. When you can’t live around family, you want to fit in as much simulated live-under-one-roof-and-drive-each-other-crazy time as you can. It makes for good times.
