About Aspen Real Life


AspenRealLife Author w: hubby


Welcome to Aspen Real Life, a blog filled with encouraging and inspirational stories meant to elevate and empower one to live life to the fullest.

Born in 2009, Aspen Real Life has always been about telling the stories of parenting three young boys with my true love, “Baddy“, a tall, dark, funny, handsome badass of a father.

Our boys: Thumper, Feisty-One and Hootie-Hoo, are now (almost) all in their teens and are just like they were when I started the blog, only more hard core – taking risks at every corner and thus driving me towards meditation, and Baddy towards medication, or beer.

So come on in and get to know us over here at Aspen Real Life, a place where opportunity knocks in every gondola ride and preconceived notions get tossed out the window as reality sets in, revealing not only the glitz and glamor of our beautiful mountain resort town but also the people who weave together the fabric of our valley.

Meet a fiery toothless woman who may change your perspective on marriage, life and spirituality, and cowboys who whisper sweet words of love drunk poetry, and meet the heroes who flutter in from nowhere to save this author…me…Jillian, a delusional, positive, slightly crazy and dyslexic mother who mixes up all cliche expressions and is constantly lost.

Let’s continue the adventure together as we review the best of Aspen, the Roaring Fork Valley, and beyond. Watch the “on the fly” interviews and read the stories of others who have made the decision to live as hard and positively as they possibly can.

Be sure to share and comment, as I thrive on getting to know you, my readers and the more you like, comment and share my posts, the closer I will get to writing that book about life, love, and the notion that if you persevere with your passion doors will open and you might just find yourself exactly where you have always dreamed you could be.

With Great Affection,
