I'm HOME!!

Back with stories.
And pictures
(once I unpack the camera,)
a grin for fools.
Vintage suede chaps for The Monkey.
River reeds plucked from the banks of the Gunnison
and fresh slices of shining mica.

A new wedding band.
A motorcycle.
And . . . ahem, mojo, thank-you-very-much.
(Careful, people. Colorado does things to you.)

Yesterday I left a dry 65
and returned to a humid 96-

My hair
{{and my heart}}

couldn't get much


  1. I'm feelin' ya' on the hair....and that was why five years ago when I moved to NC, I dumped John Frieda for L.A. Looks. There was no 'dear john' letter just the realization that I couldn't afford to eat and maintain an acceptable hair size. Welcome back! Lookin' forward to seeing the new stuff and so ready to drool. ;)

  2. yay, I'm so happy for you!!! :)

  3. Welcome home Jess...glad you had a chance to regroup and refresh! ♥
    As for big hair....i kinda love it! :)

  4. welcome home lovely♥

    love and light

  5. Jess!!! Welcome home, girl! Sounds like you had an awesome trip. A motorcycle?! I can't wait to hear all about it.
    I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one who likes to keep chunks of mica. I have a little collection that shines on my kitchen counter.

  6. I'd love to see photos of all your treasures from the trip you just spoke of please. I am so happy for you. I love how your joy sounds; now I want to let it pleasure my eyes too please. You so deserve the break!
    Lots of love your way.

  7. It sounds like the trip was a good one, Jess! So happy for you. ;)

  8. Lord, but I hate humidity. And heat. Anything about 70 and I'm irritated and bitey.

    So excited you're back!

  9. Wonderful and heart warming! Your post made me feel so good. Glad you're back! xo

  10. welcome back darling.. glad you enjoyed yourself! xx
