Welcome to try small things! I’m Julie. This is my lifestyle blog for readers, foodies and decor enthusiasts who love to discover and try small things. I live with my family (including my hubby and our 9-year-old son, 11-year-old daughter, and beloved kitty) in Ottawa, Ontario.

It’s taken me forever to talk about outside a very small group of family and friends, but I’ve been dealing with depression and anxiety for years, particularly social anxiety, which makes it tough to try small things. It’s a good day when I’ve tried a new reciperead a few pages of a great book or changed something in our home to freshen it up. (Not that the house ever looks that clean. Well rarely.) I’m a homebody trying small things to feel better. And it makes me feel so good to hear that you want to try some of the same things too.
