4 Ways To Celebrate Family Fitness Day

Family Fitness Day is this Saturday, September 30th, and even though there are a lot of silly holidays out there (looking at you, National Donut Day), I love this special day purposed to promote family involvement in physical fitness. My family famously loves to choreograph dances and do other physical activities together but often our schedules get in the way, as they do with many families. We're taking this day as an opportunity to plan something awesome together! To inspire other families to follow suit, I've listed below some of the ways my family (and chosen family!) choose to be

My Dream Wayfair Wedding Event

When it came to decorating for our wedding, Brooks and I truly strived to make everyone feel like home. Much like our own home, we had visions of natural colors and mixed textures with an earthy, comfortable vibe. Many of the items we have at our house were purchased on Wayfair, so we figured that was a great place to start. We were able to find practically everything we had in mind for the dinner party! They had the right oversized pillows for seating, soft throws, table decorations, and more that we needed to make our dreams a reality. Besides

The Importance of a Girlfriends’ Getaway

A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to take the ultimate girls' trip with some of my lifelong friends. We all met in high school, and we’ve managed to stay closely connected even through all of life’s adventures. We usually only get to see each other during the holidays back in Salt Lake City, but we often fantasize about taking a vacation somewhere great. After eleven years of saying ‘we should’… it finally happened! For our getaway, we cruised up to Alaska -- definitely uncharted territory for most of us. We visited Ketchikan, Juneau, Tracy Arm Fjord, and Skagway.

10 Genius Kitchen Gadgets Designed to Keep You Healthy

Cooking clean isn't only about the food you're making. Creating healthy meals has a great deal to do with the tools you use to create them! If you limit yourself to a pot and a pan, you're missing out on many delish dishes. Zucchini is great, but you know what's better? Zucchini noodles -- thanks to the spiralizer! Sweet potatoes have always been a staple but I didn't know food love until I sliced 'em up and threw 'em into an air fryer. When I'm cooking, I like to measure everything out and use as little oil as possible. I

Ask Jules: Your Parents’ Personal Lives

When Sara wrote in, I knew immediately I wanted to answer her question. Her situation is really common, but I feel like not enough people talk about it seriously. The dating world can be a weird one. Watching your parents navigate the dating world can be even weirder. The most important thing to remember is to keep your relationship with your parents your main focus. Communication, patience, honesty, and love are key. Hi Julianne! I'd like to start by saying that I love your blog, you're really an inspiration to me and I truly look up to you as an

How To Be Your Own Travel Photographer

Hey, guys! When we were looking into where we wanted to honeymoon, Jules and I considered three main elements: romance, adventure, and photography. We wanted to see exquisite things and capture them beautifully as keepsakes we could always treasure. Photography was, is, and always will be a big part of our plans. It brings us joy and personal fulfillment, and I'd even go so far as to call it a type of therapy for me. When it comes to photos of me and my wife, I don't want to look back 20 years from now at selfies of us from

Hello, Again

From day one, I wanted this site to be a space that made people feel happy and inspired. Through all the new projects, exciting recipes, and uplifting stories, we’ve all learned and shared so much. As time went on -- nearly three years! -- it has become more than I could have ever imagined. I hope you all feel as good as I do about what we’ve built here. When Brooks and I got married in July, I took some time to reassess my priorities. In reevaluating how I want to spend my time, the one thing I knew wholeheartedly

Get The Look: Alaskan Cruise

Before I go on trips I love to do a little fashion show so I know I'm packing exactly the right outfits. It's a great way to maximize your luggage space and only bring things you know you're excited to wear. For my Alaskan adventure with my girlfriends last month, I knew I wanted to go with a fall palette to complement the Alaskan landscape, so I put on the yellow sweater from Vince and started building from there. !function(doc,s,id){ var e, p, cb; if(!doc.getElementById(id)) { e = doc.createElement(s); = id; cb = new Date().getTime().toString(); p = '//' +

Ask Jules: Conquering Your Fears

Spiders. Heights. Crowds. These are just a few of the common fears people face every day. Overcoming them isn’t easy -- but it is completely achievable. I love Leah's commitment to overcoming her fear of flying; she isn’t going to let anything stand in the way of her family trip or any other future journey. What fears have you overcome? If you have any tips for Leah please leave them in the comments! Hi Jules, I was wondering if you had any advice or tips for on travelling on planes. I'm absolutely petrified of flying regardless of how long or

The Jules x MPG Sport Fall 2017 Collection Is Here

I loved my last MPG collection so much I thought there was no way we could ever top it. I can't believe I'm saying this, but -- we actually did it! The new collection launches today (!!!) and the excitement of getting to share it with you all has been giving me serious butterflies. The fall collection is chic and comfortable, but with a little more edge than my previous collections. I think there's something for everyone!
