I met Julia many years ago. The first thing you need to know is that her name is pronounced Hoolia!
It’s like Julia. But with an H!
The first time we met was on the Merry-Go-Round at Chippewa Park. Maybe seven years ago? We were with our kids, Julia with her daughter and me with my middle son. I thought to myself, I want to be friends with this lady… so it’s going to happen. So what I did was make friends with her husband and just worm my way into the family. Now I’m the weird aunt that everybody tolerates and it’s absolutely magical.
I’ve been trying to put Julia on the blog for years, but she is elusive. So when I approached her about being featured in the Walleye, she couldn’t say no. So last month it was the Walleye and this month is People of Port Arthur!
Born in Rosario, Santa Fe, Argentina, Julia never imagined she’d one day be moving to Canada, never mind raising a family in Northwestern Ontario!
Thank you Julia, you are truly one in a million and I’m so happy to know you!
