Welcome! We're so excited you're here!
Hi I’m Julia!
During the day I am a corporate lawyer but when I’m not working I love to tap into my creative side whether through photography, decorating our home or practicing the piano (I just started taking lessons for the first time again since I was a kid).
I have been married to my husband Mike (aka Wally by Jeannine and Stephen) since 2009 and we have two wild and fun loving daughters, Lilah and Ellie. I went to the University of Pittsburgh for both my bachelors and law degrees H2P!!!
I’m always up for hosting a Friday night pizza party (PJ’s welcome) and love when my house is full of people laughing, singing and having a good time. I hate, hate, hate going to stores and prefer to shop online for everything (groceries included). If it exists, I’ll find it and get it delivered! I’d rather stay home than go out and you’ll most likely find me hanging outside while the neighborhood kiddos play (look out for the target lawn chairs in the driveway - super classy).
We can’t wait to share our fashion finds, home décor, travel tips, recipes and glimpses into our everyday lives with you.
So, who are we? Julia and Jeannine! We are two Pittsburgh girls, born and raised, who share a love for our families, friends, our city and so much more. We have known each other for over 10 years, and have recently become neighbors! We have similar interests and love sharing our crazy ideas and fabulous finds with each other. We realized, rather than keep it all to ourselves, there is a whole world out there that we could let in on the fun, too!
If you asked about each of us, you would hear very similar things…strong-willed, direct, and we don’t get caught up in what other people think! We are also two of the most caring, kind-hearted, and loyal friends who you can always count on to have your back! As lame as it sounds, we both truly believe in “keeping it real” and you can count on the fact that what you see is what you get with the two of us which always keeps things interesting!
We hope you have fun following along and thanks for visiting Sapphire & Main
Hey there! Jeannine here, or to friends and family, Gigi here!
My days are made up of working to provide tools and resources to our sales team at an energy company, which I have been a part of for 16 years! How that is possible, I don’t think I am old enough to work somewhere for 16 years. :-)
I enjoy photography and spend my downtime helping family and friends with their stationery needs or party planning! I love throwing parties, and if you asked my husband Stephen, I go overboard EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.
I also have a passion for decorating, or in my case, redecorating, and have a head full of ideas on things that we need … er, want … to do in the house. I am the queen of just wanting to do one little thing, and then all of sudden we are redecorating the whole room.
I am married to my best friend. It was love at first sight. Full disclosure, it took him a little longer, ha, but he came around. He is hilarious, kind, supportive, and most important, we are equals.
