About the Joys

 Hello, I'm Julie Joy! A wife & new mama enjoying a country lifestyle - one glass of wine at a time!

I live in the thumb of the mitten state.

I am lover of making lists, being outdoors, hunting with my hubby, gardening, camping, attempting to be Betty Crocker, crafting, and taking pictures of allll the things!
I am a new Mama to my precious baby girl, Remington Rose ♥ And we have another bundle of Joy on the way!
I once earned the title of Miss Marine City USA and competed in the Miss Michigan USA pageant competition!
Michael and I are board members and volunteers for QDMA {Quality Deer Management Association} where we enjoy learning how to improve the future of our whitetail deer hunting and sharing our experiences with fellow hunters.

I joined the blogging world because I decided this would be a good place to journal some of life's greatest moments so I can easily look back on them someday! Little did I know that I would meet such fun and inspiring women, some of which have become wonderful friends!

Meet my handsome husband, Michael! He was born and raised in the "sticks" where he only graduated with 12 (yes, 12) classmates! Michael is the definition of a small town country boy and I love it!
In Michael's spare time he enjoys working on his food plots, fishing, hunting, camping, snowmobiling, farming, and a good 'ol country cruise.
That's us in a nut shell! Mr. & Mrs. Joy!

On March 30, 2015 - we welcomed Remington Rose to the world ♥
That sums up our little family! ♥
