oh hi! nice to meet you :)

Oh, Hello there! I'm Jules.
Happy Thursday Ya'll!
[ today is my friday since i have tomorrow off! ]
So, I wanted to do a little blog post for you to get to know me since I've got some new (& amazing) followers. I wanted to say that I sincerely love and appreciate each and every comment that you leave. I am so bad with commenting, and it's something I really need to work on because I know how great it feels to get some positive feedback from your readers:) I tend to read & forget to comment.
If you are new to this blog, then welcome & thank you for taking the time to read it. I still can't believe over 500 people follow this blog and have some sort of interest in what I write about.
I know my blog isn't something all that special, but I want it to be a place to share my positive attitude on life and add some happiness in to your day ♥
If you're a new follower - please comment & say hi! let me know about your blog so I can check it out too. I love finding new blogs to explore.

&&& now here are some fun/random facts about me!

♥ My name is Julie, but I have a lot of nicknames. I go by Jules mostly on my blog because it just feels right, haha. I think Jules really suits me and I've been called that a lot in the past. Plus,  my man calls me that so it's just really catching on it seems.

♥ I worked on a cruise ship for a few years (on & off) and it was one of the best experiences of my life. I got to travel to so many amazing places and meet incredible people from all over the world. And the best part - I met my boyfriend Pete on the ship! (or the love boat as I like to call it)

♥ I LOVE movies. I love going to the movies, I get so excited like a little kid. I go to the movies often and still really appreciate them! Pete and I have so many dvd's and our collection is always growing. To name a few favourites : Dazed and Confused, Troop Beverly Hills, Home Alone, Clueless, Stand By Me, I Love You Man, Superbad, Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Up, Fever Pitch, Empire Records, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Across the Universe, The Breakfast Club, Sandlot, Now & Then, My Girl, Mermaids, Romy and Michelle's High School Reunion (etc etc, lol)

♥ Christmas is pretty much my favourite thing in the world. Well, it's not really a thing is what you're thinking, but I really am in love. Christmas has always been the most special time of the year and it makes me so ridiculously happy. I guess I've always loved the joy it's brought to me and my family and so many others. I love seeing people do good things, and full of good cheer. I really do wish it could be Christmas all year long! (one of my nicknames = Julie Ross Christmas!)

♥ I love taking photo's. I am always that person who takes all the pictures and I love it. Photo's are so special to me and I still love developing them and putting them in to albums and scrapbooks. I've got a digital camera, a DSLR, instax mini and of course my iphone. I am also addicted to instagram :)

♥ I love wearing dresses. It's basically all I ever wear. When people see me wearing something other than a dress they usually make a comment. I don't know how or when I became such a girly girl, but I love it! I think I own about 150 dresses. (omg, I know)

♥ I am a Cupcake girl! I can honestly say that I loved Cupcakes before they became a "thing"- I just think that they're so frigging cute, and they make people smile which is a huge bonus. Over 3 years ago after bringing Cupcakes to events, parties, gatherings etc. I decided to start my own little business on the side. Cupcakes Made With Love seemed like a perfect & fitting name for my little business. They've come a long way and I have so much fun doing orders for special occasions for all kinds of people. Each order is filled with all my love and creativity!

♥ I love TORONTO. I grew up in a suburb just 30 minutes east of Toronto but fell in love with the city forever ago. I've lived in Toronto in the past and then travelled quite a bit but have been back living here for a few years and I am so in love with this city! Our place is perfect and I've got so many amazing friends in the city, not to mention my brothers, sis-in-law & niece! There are so many wonderful places in Toronto and it seems like almost every day that I find something new & exciting!

♥ The Beatles make me so happy. I have loved them all my life and I am still a die hard fan! I have 2 Beatles related tattoos ( let it be && all you need is love ) Their music makes me so happy and I love the positive message they convey. 
Learn more about my love of the Beatles by watching my "The Beatles Make Everything Better" Vlog!
