About Julie

About Julie Thorne, the woman behind Top US family travel and lifestyle blog, More Than Main Street

Hey Friends!

I’m Julie!

Welcome to More than Main Street, a family travel and lifestyle blog!

My mission is simple: I’m here to help families choose more experiences and less things. Whether you prefer to explore your own backyard or travel the world, I want to encourage you to create more life with less stuff.

I want everyone to know it’s OK to want MORE out of life. But… I don’t mean keeping up with the Jones’. I mean intentionally creating a life you love.

What MORE means to me:

  • More adventures
  • More simplicity
  • More kindness
  • More authenticity
  • More learning
  • More healthy choices
  • More balance &
  • More community

If you want more of these same things, then let’s be friends!!

Mexican food, sweets, music, coffee, and cocktails are a few of my favorite things. I’m an avid reader, writer, and over-user of the exclamation mark! But if I’m being honest, being a wife and mama is what makes my heart happy.

I want to inspire you and be inspired every single day. I want to share positive and encouraging things, yet keep things real. I’m so glad that you’re here!! I hope you will stay awhile and join me on this journey to discovering there’s More than Main Street!

Let’s Connect! The best way to follow my daily life is over on Instagram, but you can also find me on Facebook, Pinterest, and Twitter. Or you can join my email list for some cool freebies, monthly tips and inspo!

Thank you for following and supporting More than Main Street!
