Judy-isms is where I share musings about parenting, life, travel, and everything in between; my irresistible stories. I realize this is just a blog but I like to think of it as having a cocktail and a conversation with a friend. My favorite cocktail is a dirty, vodka martini with extra olives — in case you were curious.

Be sure to check out my other blog, Irresistible Storytelling, a DIY course in messaging and 1-2-1 storytelling coaching for your brand, blog or business. Everyone has a story, some just need help telling it and others just need a little inspiration.

Thanks for stopping by, and if you can make one person smile or laugh today — consider it a good day!
