I've always found it a humorous challenge to write about myself, to try to arrange words in the exact right order so that I can explain who I am. Don't words often fall short when expressing the intricacies of who we are as complex creatures? Anyway, I digress. 

Here are a few things that light me up: 

  • Movement of all sorts! Yoga, Martial Arts, running, and especially hiking. 

  • Spending time outside; this is part of my daily medicine, rain or shine. 

  • Dogs. Mine is the best in the world (his name is Max) but so is every other dog.

  • Creating sacred spaces; I love to intentionally arrange my home in the coziest, comfiest way possible. 

  • Spending time with my husband and our close inner circle as we do our best to savor every day that we get to share together.

For what it's worth, my sun sign is Libra, my moon is Cancer, and my rising is Sagittarius. In Human Design, I am a reflector. I try not to put *all* of my eggs in the basket of these systems, but I see them as fun tools to percieve the world and understand ourselves (and truthfully, I am here for the astrology memes).

 

I am most interested in doing my best to live a beautfiul and meaningful life; one where growth, compassion, and awareness are a priotrity. I have always felt acutely aware of the truth that our time here on earth is fleeting. I strive everyday to live in a way that I will feel proud of in the end. 

The fact that I get to hold space for love as my job feels like the most incredible blessing. I never take my role lightly, and to be perfectly honest, it feels like what I was always meant to do.

 

I care about humans and I care about love and I care about never giving up on us. To me, sacred ceremonies are healing for us all. They leave a mark that lasts a lifetime. They should be meaningful, and impactful, and completely unforgettable. This is what I do. Thank you for considering me as your officiant. 

I am so grateful that you are here. 

Love, 

Julia
