Hello my name is
J U L I A
It’s so nice to meet you! Thank you for visiting The Youthful Home. Here in this cozy little corner of the internet, you’re always welcome. So grab a cup of tea and make yourself at home.
The Story Behind the Name
My name means “youthful.” It seems to suit me. While I’ve matured and grown wiser through the years, I am still very much a kid at heart. If I get hurt, chances are I will cry. Singing and dancing throughout my house are regular occurrences for me.
If you know me personally, you know that I’m quite the little homebody. Nothing blankets my heart better than a day spent in my abode. When I married my husband, I realized my great joy and gift for decorating and tending a home.
And yet, The Youthful Home represents so much more. It is a philosophy of living. As far as I’m concerned, youth is not bound to a certain age. The home should be a peaceful sanctuary in which you can be your utmost, childlike self. A place where your faith grows. A place where your love is shared. My goal is to never lose my young, joyful spirit and I’m inviting you to join me.
Proverbs 31:30 “Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.”
I am a dreamer. My imagination is always at play. A green tea enthusiast, homemaker, cook, nature girl, fashion lover, traveler, I am most importantly a Christ follower. I strive to exude the love of Jesus. I am an online ESL teacher to children in China–a truly enriching experience.
I’m married to my other half, Billy Brown. He’s the Gilbert Blythe to my Anne Shirley. (I am an Anne of Green Gables lover, so just warning you now.) He captured my heart one summer, we fell in love, and God has been writing our beautiful love story ever since. I literally love him more every morning I wake up. Our motto from the very beginning has always been “beauty in simplicity.” I believe that is one of the key ingredients in our beautiful love.
In August of 2018, my husband and I bought our first home. (Still thanking the Lord!) After years of blogging, I decided to rebrand the blog to document the making of our home. I’m thrilled to embark on this journey, and to take ya’ll with me!
The Youthful Home is where I hope to inspire you to love your abode. To create spaces that tell your story.
Here at The Youthful, I share decorating tips, DIYs, interior inspiration, faith-inspired life lessons, home cooking, and other goodies that pair well with coffee and scones.
