Hi! My name is Jill... I am a Wanna be World Traveler...baby-stepping across the globe!
****UPDATE**** WEDDING COMING SOON!!!!
Scotty and I have been engaged for 3 years and living together over 6...we finally set a date for our wedding! We will be getting married at the Court House by the Justice of the Peace on OCTOBER, 15, 2020! 10/15/20! Easy to remember! Since 2 of our adult children live in Europe, we just decided to do it now as a small ceremony on Zoom at the court house, and then when the world is a healthier place, and we can all be together...we will have a proper party/reception with our friends and family.
When I am not traveling ...my fiancé and I live in a sweet 1938 Cape Cod in the heart of Louisville, Kentucky, that we have affectionately named, “Orpington Cottage”. It has a warm rustic European farm feel.
We grow our own herbs and vegetables, compost, try to reduce our footprint, reuse, recycle, and enjoy our own farm-fresh eggs with our backyard laying hens (we have 2 Buff Orpingtons and 3 Lavender Orpingtons!). Not only do they lay the best tasting eggs on earth...but they are also the sweetest lap hens you could ever wish for!
MY AMBERLEIGH LIFE:
On Swapbot, in a group called “At Hope With The Georgettes”, I represent a Regency/Georgian Era Character named: Priscilla Anne Ackley and husband her, Elmer James Ackley, owners and proprietors of Ackley Dairy Farm supplying eggs and milk to the village and surrounding area. We keep a special journal for our swaps pertaining to this period. You can find more information about this group in the above Blog Link near the top of this page.
