A Little Mountain Romance

Go up to a high place, just to fall in love with the land, to meet the sky face to face, to run your fingertips across buds and blossoms, to press your soul against the green, to drink from the sun.  Take your time, your sweet old time.  Dawdle.  Sit in the sagebrush.  Listen to the birds and feel the wind.  Don’t come down until the half moon is strung up in the feathers of the fir trees, the dogs are hungry and your hands are cold.  I’m sure you’ll agree, it’s the perfect way to spend an evening.

    Gosh, you are such a beauty.

  3. Catherine Chandler says:

    Also, what is up with your backpack collection? I have seen at least 3 distinct ones throughout your posts! Kinda jealous, I’m not gonna lie.

    • Ah yes. I’m shooting product in the field for a couple companies right now…I have a LOT of bags so they are all kind of on serious rotation when I go out… 🙂

  4. love the dreamy moonstruck gaze.
    and those spotted socks.


  5. I’m kind of jealous too; I am stuck in a city. You’re making me restless, lady.

    • Lizzie, you used the perfect word… the pictures, too, make me feel restless! Miss Plume, I am dying to get a similar belt buckle. Did you make it, yourself? I love the pattern with the beads: lovely.

      • AH! That buckle. It is one of my greatest treasures — I actually collect contemporary and vintage/antique native beadworks. Did you know that? I found that buckle in a vintage shop in Washington last summer. I screamed when I saw it. I think I paid $20 for it. It’s Chippewa. 🙂

    • Lizzie! You should do something about that restlessness…maybe a jaunt up to Jasper?

  6. Just need that man out there with ya, and this whole thing would be too Mountain Romantic for words…and you might not want to share the pictures! Ha!

  7. yes
    I agree

    love and light dear one

    ps love the image of you kissing the pups….beautiful xoox

    Beautiful. Feels just like coming home.

  9. Just lovely. Love the shots of the moon!

    • I know! The sky!!! The sky this spring has been nothing short of a miracle, every single day. I cannot get over it. I can’t remember it ever being like this, but the fact is, it is probably like this every year.

      So beautiful.

  10. Yes, the very best way to spend an evening. Love your dreamy gaze into the camera-great shot! And cute socks!

    • I love that shot too.
      It’s bare bones ME. 100%.

      Thanks for the sock love! I have been known to buy multiple pairs of the same color when I find polkadot sets…they are kind of my THING. 🙂

  11. Such beautiful photos as always.. Is there a book coming soon.. I sure hope so!! 🙂

  12. Oh yeah. That’s exactly what I am doing this week. Colorado….mountains, mesas, sun, and wind. Love these times. Love your photos! Nature rules.

  13. Love, love, love

  14. Oh yes! I’ve been meeting everything face to face these days. I’m lolly gagging like there’s no tomorrow. It really has been perfect. Just like you said it would be.
    The trench coat greeting?!!
    Then with a big grin he’ll say, “Luuucyy”…haha LMHO!

  15. Thank you Jillian for the beauty…appreciation abounds!

  16. Oh for the access, the wilderness, time to look and not think, time with my best friend…my dog, us just walking. This is a joious post.

  17. Hi Jillian,
    I saw your blog accidentally and I felt in live with all your posts and photos.
    Specially I felt in love with your desk. I have a question: could I print it out? I only want to put it in front of me while working, because it really gives me energy.

    Thank you.

  18. Your pictures as always are beautiful, wish I was there strolling with you! That striped shirt is calling my name, can I ask where it came from? Have a lush of an evening!

  19. Spending time with nature, wandering with intent, the best medicine. Thank you for sharing it.

  20. Hi there, just stumbled on your blog and am loving it! I am always looking for clothing that is good looking and and functional (go to work and climb mountains like in them) therefore, Odd questions, but what brand are those pants?

    • Hey hon!
      Those pants are “Rich and Skinny” which is a brand I have never really heard of but I’m really not up to date on brands. I found these pants on clearance at a TJ Maxx and liked the color… 🙂
