As a lover of food, travel, and adventures, I’m experiencing the world as any 24-year-old should: by pursuing my passions and doing what I love in life. I moved to Birmingham, AL about two years ago for a job in the magazine publishing industry and fell in love with a city full of life and a job that I can’t get enough of. I’m always looking for new experiences and adventures that I want to document and share, so that’s where this blog comes in. Whether I’m trying a new restaurant, experimenting with recipes, or taking a weekend trip somewhere, I want to be able to share these experiences with you and be a resource for you to plan your own adventure.
Where did the blog name come from?
“Among life’s precious jewels, genuine and rare, the one that we call friendship has worth beyond compare.”
I had been trying to figure out a name for this blog for a while, and then I remembered this quote and knew it would be a perfect fit. Many of my friends call me Jules, so I used it as a bit of a play on words to remind me that yes, “life is precious, Jules” and also that I should appreciate the precious jewels in life. And in my journey to figure out this crazy life, I’m discovering it with a supportive family and amazing friends by my side.
