My name is Julie Abad Smith. I was born and raised in Quito, Ecuador. I have a nine-year-old daughter and a two-year old fur baby (Eevee, she is a sweet Maltese). My husband is in the Air Force. We’ve been married for 18 years!! We have moved 9 times during our military journey - two overseas experiences. I love to learn about different cultures. We are a bilingual family (English and Spanish). One of my favorite things is to bake with my daughter!!! Our favorites are cupcakes and brownies. I also like to hike, read, write, take pictures of nature, and also FaceTime with my parents and family in Ecuador. We are currently living in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
