i first must apologize for my lack of posting...
moving is hard and a HUGE distraction....

blogging content has been hard to come by....

but thankfully i was able to spend quality time with some blogging friends.....
 shopping for vintage treasures!
{we all agreed we were not fans of the term 'junk'}

Becky and Suzanne both commented that i seemed
calm and not stressed about the whole 'our family is moving across the country
in 3 short weeks' thing.....
boy did i fool them!

despite all the cleaning, organizing and planning
i SHOULD have been doing, i was so happy to be
doing something unrelated to moving - and oh so grateful....
for friendship.
'cause even though i am moving to the west
coast, and wish i would have met these girls
three years ago.....i know we will remain friends forever....
and i will see them again....

 'cause the laundry i would have done, or the bathroom
that would have gotten a scrub would have been quickly
forgotten in days. 
but this day spent with new friends
introduced to me through blogging will be remembered

 productive? ~ i'd say my day was exactly that!

even the back of my car showed productivity!

Oh, and by the way, Becky did a very nice post about my
Forever*Cottage that includes some great
pictures - if you are interested in taking a peek
head here!

  1. Why did this post make me tear up a little..geesh! That was just the best day ever. Love that pic of me and Suzanne. Where was the fourth person?? We really needed you in there too. I can't imagine why there's nothing to blog about;) Before you know it there will be too much to tell us...can't wait!!

  2. Hi Jill - I don't post much - but I have followed your blog. I do hope in your new adventures you continue to blog and share your style and adventure.

    Can you tell me about your brown bag...it is fantastics - such style, like you.


  3. Jill,
    I have been reading your blog for a while now and have just become a follower, love your blog! Lucky you to be going back home where your family is and all those fabulous barn sales, (BH for one) and those fab shops! Loved your MN house, your new one is lovely also. Can't wait to see what you do to it! Would love for you to visit me when you get a chance!
    P.S. Love your name now, but if you change it, my favorite is Forever After Cottage.

  4. Hi Jill
