Bonjour! Welcome to our corner of the blogosphere! Jet Set Jiles. Jiles is a nickname we got when we were dating. It stuck. Jennifer + Miles = Jiles.
We’re the typical love story. Met at the neighborhood bar halfway between our houses in Old Town Alx. Dated. Traveled. Partied at the Boat Club. Ate fabulous meals. Got married. Shopped. Bought our starter yacht, Nautical Jiles. Miles retired. Decided to really jet set!
We were free. Playin’ on a pension. Totally bon vivanting!
And we love Downton Abbey — first show we binged when Miles retired! So we went to Highclere Castle where they filmed it!
We like doing stuff like that. Watch something on the tele. Then go visit a place related to it! It’s a nice balance between nesting and bon voyage play.
We were having some amazing trips. But something was off. Something was missing.
What did I have a deep soul longing to manifest? To attract? A human child?!!
Naaaaaa. They’re cute and all, but not our particular style.
What does belong with Jiles? A fur baby ! ! !
Enter our little’ Chou Chou (pronounced: Shoe Shoe, a French term of affection). Her old mum went to heaven, so she came to complete our family de Jiles.
Santa dropped off Miss Mia, Christmas Eve 2020. She’s 4 fierce furry pounds and spends most of her time protecting Mommy, playing with Daddy, chasing bunnies, and wagging her tail for yum yums! And she’s just the sweetest little sugar plum!
We’re here — all three of us: Miles, Jennifer, and the Furry Princess as a family — to help people experience how playful, luxurious, light hearted, serene, and magical life can be on this beautiful blue planet.
We consciously create a life filled with beauty at home and on our travels. (and on our boat!)
We enjoy practicing the art of living well, and creating daily rituals to thrive & nourish the soul.
And while we’ve always traveled, entertained, explored, shopped and dined well, since Miles’ retirement, we’ve incorporated “snowbirding” into our repertoire.
And as you’ve already figured out by now, we’re bloggers! (And aspiring YouTubers! lol.) We love sharing all of our discoveries, and invite you to come along for the ride.
😘 Jennifer, Miles, & Mia
p.s. Did ya know “pip pip” mimics the double honk you’d here on a motorcar in the early 20th century? It’s an upperclass British colloquialism for farewell. I learned that because we’re Downton Abbey superfans!🎩
