I'm so glad you are here! I am an artist, author, food lover and weekend paddle boarder. This is my place to share with you all of the things I do to "Keep My Ship Together". If you are anything like me, you may find yourself juggling ten different things at any given time. JulieDKohl.com is a mix of recipes, outdoor activities, travel adventures and art projects designed to keep you physically and mentally healthy. I don't preach a specific diet or lifestyle but encourage you to find what you love and do what keeps you feeling good.

Happy Paddling!
