she liked Imaginary Men best of all

Wave goodbye, wish her well


So my “Lil Sis” The Awesome Jill is leaving today for the most exciting adventure: She is going to Spain to see U2!!!

Not only is this her first trip out of the country but she is doing the entire thing SOLO. How amazing is that?!? A week on her own in a place where she doesn’t speak the language – so that she can take a very independent “Big Girl” step and see a band that she loves so much. Jill is much younger than me but in many ways, a hell of a lot more mature! At her age I was sitting around my apartment in Boston eating cookie dough and moaning about life sucking.

Ok – so maybe she does that as well 😉 But the point is – she is going out and doing something different – something exciting and adventurous. I’m really in awe and so proud of her. I know she will have a “musical journey” that would make the boys in U2 honored to have her as a fan.


I hope they sing Spanish Eyes for you Candy-who-used-to-go-by-Jackie!!!

  1. It was DAMN GOOD cookie dough!! And we were in our pajamas at 3:00PM…

  2. Buenas suerte, our little Senorita!

    We’ll be thinking of you!

  3. Aww this is so lovely JR, JillyC you are much braver than me, but it is amazing that these musicians actually change our lives without even knowing it! Have the best time ❤ Foxy x

  4. Jill, you are officially my hero, as I am a TOTAL wimp when it comes to traveling! Have a kick ass time in Spain! You deserve it! Oh, and be sure to take LOTS and LOTS of pictures, so the rest of us can live vicariously through you!

  5. I woke up this morning terrified asking myself “What the hell am I doing?! Going alone to a foreign country?! I am out of my damn mind!!” But this calmed me down and had me realize that this is LIFE and you have to do these things to experience all the world has to offer. And it also helps that one of the best bands ever is making a special guest appearance 😉

    Thank you so much for this Amy and thanks for the well wishes. I’ll be sure to keep everyone posted and you will all be in my thoughts when my mind wanders into territory about Brandon Flowers and tight jeans, food stuff, and amazing friends back home ❤ ❤ all of you!!! (Oh and I totally eat cookie dough when the time calls for it!)

  6. Have an amazing time Jilly!!!! This trip is just another reason why you’re awesome!
