Jill's Blog

Welcome to my daily blog. If this is your first time, I'm a romance writer and a misplaced city girl currently living in the wild Sierras. I tend to have a lot of I-Love-Lucy moments that I share here but sometimes we talk about books, TV, and our favorite cookies. Okay, my favorite cookies. In any case, please feel free to comment by clicking on the Comments at the bottom of any entry. If you're too shy, that's okay, just know I love having you.

Help me name them? If I pick your names, you’ll get next my book CHASING CHRISTMAS EVE!!!!

That’s my baby. On a cliff…

So Oldest went backpacking at Half Dome in Yosemite. If you’ve ever had the chance to see Half Dome in person, then you know how amazing a place it is. I’m betting at the very least you’ve seen pictures of the glorious peak in calendars and art galleries or online.

Bet you haven’t seen this picture. Oldest after an all day climb. She’s the little dot on the cliff.

Here she is on the right with her friends. I look at this picture and can feel my womb clutch. That is my baby. On a cliff. On purpose.

I can’t even climb a ladder without getting dizzy. Boggles the mind, doesn’t it?

You are welcome.

I Love Lucy Tuesday

FullSizeRender 3Happy August 1, and by that I mean WHERE IS THE SUMMER GOING?????

Anyway, Frat Boy and I were on our morning hike through the woods, and when I say woods, you all know by now I mean some pretty seriously isolated woods in the Northern California Sierras. I was moving along at a good clip because there’ve been a lot of bears and coyotes this year.

Well, that and the fact that I have consumed too many cookies lately and I’m not going to fit into my writer conference clothes for NYC in a few weeks. But I digress.

As we’re moving along, I’m happily wailing at the top of my lungs to Uptown Funk when Frat Boy goes off trail, stands at the bottom of a huge, old tree and barks. Huh. I go to stand next to him, tip my head back to peer two hundred and fifty feet up to the top of the tree, and then BAM. The next thing I know I’m sitting on my ass in the dirt, my head spinning.

A squirrel had beaned me with a pinecone.

Still dizzy, I call Alpha Man. “You’re not going to believe this.”

“Does it require stitches or a cast?”

To be fair, he has good reason to ask me such a question. “No.”

“The bank account thanks you.”

Honest to God, he’s so sweet and sensitive and loving it boggles the mind. Anyway, so now I have to add squirrels to my list of rabid creatures to avoid…

Monday Musings

Finally back at home in Tahoe after nearly two weeks away.

I’m thinking of never leaving home again. And though the dogs are happy to see me, the cat is planning on making me pay…

Anyone else traveling anywhere this summer? Inquiring minds wanna know!

Happy Hump Day

Ladies and gentlemen, let me introduce Spence Baldwin, our resident Heartbreaker Bay sexy tech genius.

He’s finally getting his own story in September in CHASING CHRISTMAS EVE, and it’s up for preorder! So please feel free to make this author’s day and keep her from applying for jobs at Taco Bell and Target. (Not that there’s ANYTHING wrong with that, mind you, I love Taco Bell and Target, they’re two of my favorite places)…
