Meet Jill

Hi, I'm Jill, a high-energy, driven, and determined Scorpio. I'm originally from Kentucky and currently live in South Florida with my husband, two sons, and Mini Schnauzer, Jake. I'm a country-city-girl- hybrid. And, even though I love living in a big city, I'll always be a small-town girl at heart. "Just a small town girl, living in a lonely world..."

I initially began developing the blog as an outlet for my creative side that was becoming restless with my day-to-day routine. I'd finally discovered a way to combine my love for creative writing with my life experiences and passion for fashion, beauty, lifestyle, and travel.

J By Jilly has become so much more for me than simply a blog or passion project. It's now a big part of my life that is so near and dear to my heart. And for the first time in a long time, I'm proud of myself and beaming with excitement and anticipation for the opportunities in my future.

I hope that you enjoy the blog, feel at home, and visit often. I look forward to all of your comments, discussions, and emails. That's what life and the wacky world of blogging are all about - connection, support, and learning from one another. My biggest hope and driving force is that you benefit from my experiences, good or bad, and feel inspired or empowered. And if I'm lucky enough to make you laugh, that's a cherry on top!
