About The Publisher: Julie Dikken

Julie Dikken

Welcome to Macaroni KID! I'm Julie, the face behind this website, and I am thrilled to have you here. Let me take a moment to introduce myself and share a bit about my passion for bringing you valuable content.

As a parent, I understand the joys and challenges that come with raising children. It was this firsthand experience that inspired me to start the Macaroni KID Evergreen/Bailey/Conifer website & newsletter (Ten years ago!), a platform dedicated to providing parents like you with a wealth of local resources, inspiration, and ideas to make your family life even more special.

Your local Macaroni KID edition is run by myself, Jen Hill, and Tina Mihulka, all moms who have the same goal -- to make your life easier and more enjoyable by curating a diverse range of articles, event listings, and product reviews, as well as connecting you with the local businesses your family is looking for. Whether you're searching for family-friendly activities, mealtime inspiration, or the latest parenting trends, who to call for this-or-that, you can rely on Macaroni Kid to be your go-to resource.

Thank you for joining us on this incredible journey. I'm excited to have you as part of the Macaroni KID community, and we look forward to sharing valuable content that will make your family life the best it can be.

Here is to many family fun adventures. Peace, Love and Macaroni!
