Sober Julie – Doing Life Straight Up

 Thank you for coming to do my sober life with me!

My name is Julie and I am living this journey, which is called life, with purpose and intent. I began this blog as a sort of a journal for myself and I’ve been blessed to have watched it grow and morph into what it is today. My hope is that this blog will provide people with information, inspiration and at times innovation. Today Sober Julie focuses on Food, Travel, Family, Health and inspiration!

“Sober Doesn’t Suck!” ~ SJ

After facing her alcoholism and being involved in a car accident Julie began writing at Sober Julie where you’ll find that this funky blogger takes the tired, unappetizing reputation about sobriety and turns it into a day at the circus.

Jam-packed with ideas for food & drink recipes, travel tips and reviewsreal stories of recovery, tips for sobriety, reflections on life and tons of ideas for leading a better (more creative, more enjoyable) life.

Julie brings with her a strong background in business and knowledge of all things social media. As a speaker she has a fresh-voice which utilizes humour and relate-ability to bring forward her message.  As a writer she bares herself, offering her experience, strength and hope to the reader which allows for true connections.

There is nothing in this journey which isn’t possible; all things are achievable through God.
