Why I started Blogging…
When I started thinking about starting a blog in 2009 and initially composing some notes, I began to look more closely at where I may have gotten the knack for entertaining and “homemaking” if you may.
Please, I am no Martha Stewart. I do not iron and am not a perfectionist and lord knows, I make a lot of kitchen and craft mistakes. We won’t even get into my parenting mistakes! Contact via email at stayingclosetohom[email protected] Head to Bottom to find Top 10 Blog Posts

Meet Julie Stribling: Our Contributor
Julie is a military brat so if you ever want to get into a really long conversation, ask her where she’s from! In 2016, she and her husband moved from Silicon Valley to Richmond, VA, seeking a simpler life. They found it and are loving Richmond with their three daughters (ages 10, 8 and 6) and son (age 3). Julie enjoys reading, yoga, soccer, and when her children nap!
