Explore. Nourish. Inspire. More than Main Street

Hey Friends!

I’m Julie! Welcome to More than Main Street, a travel and lifestyle blog.

Bucket lists come in all shapes and sizes. And mine tends to focus on travel, food, and family. As my husband recently told me, “Amazing happens outside your comfort zone.” So, I’m trying to get a little more out of life in a more purposeful way.

Whether it’s traveling to a new destination, trying a new recipe, or simply trying to teach my kids a little more kindness, I’m chasing MORE!  

Mexican food, sweet treats, live music, sporting events, ranch dressing, coffee, and cocktails are a few of my favorite things. I’m an avid reader, writer, and over-user of the exclamation mark!

Travel is my one true passion. Researching a destination, creating an itinerary, and discovering a new piece of this incredible world makes me happy! I think it’s safe to say I’m slightly obsessed with travel. But if I’m not planning our next trip or traveling…I’m likely in the kitchen. I love cooking, sharing recipes, and tackling something new.  And if I’m not in the kitchen, I’m embracing the chaos that is our family! 

I have two sweet crazy kids who couldn’t be more different if they tried and provide different daily challenges as they get older. My daughter Greyson is a big personality, a baby whisperer, and a social butterfly. My son Spencer is shy, an artist, and quite the athlete.  And then of course, there’s my fabulous husband, Trey, who is always willing to entertain my harebrained ideas.

While Trey and I have been to over 16 countries and 28 states…our bucket list goals now include showing our kids the world and creating global citizens. We do tend to focus on travel within the United States, however we are trying to squeeze in as much international travel as possible too. We’re part time travelers who love to adventure near and far.

I hope y’all follow along while we try to discover that there’s More than Main Street!
