About Me

Hi!  My name is Julie.
Welcome to It's a Bosom Thing!  This is my first attempt at documenting a personal journey, but here goes.

A little about me....
I am a 41-yr old single mom to a wonderful boy (T) and a pretty good dog (Layla).  I love my role as "Mom" and all of the surprises that come with having a boy!  T is my best buddy and we love to hang-out together doing projects, watching movies, traveling, et cetera.   God has truly blessed me with this amazing kid!

I work as a RN in a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and absolutely love my job.  I get to watch tiny little neonates grow-up!  And, the families come back each Spring for our annual awesome!!  We become like extended family and share a bond forever.  I couldn't have asked for a more rewarding career!  

When I am not at work or being "Mom", I am usually creating something (or surfing Pinterest!).  My other blog is mostly about my "free time" projects...all the little things I do for fun. Come see me at 

With this blog, I am sharing my personal journey with breast cancer. I was diagnosed after my very first screening mammogram (get those mammos, Ladies!) with Stage 0 DCIS. I chose a bilateral mastectomy and immediate natural tissue reconstruction.  This blog chronicles my treatment and thoughts along the way and hopefully, provides some helpful info and tips for those of you who are also walking the breast cancer path right now.

So, that's me!
