Yes.  I will miss Jill but of course wish her well.  She sounds very peaceful over it.

I will miss Jill, her decorating tips, recipes and pleasant manner.  Wish the best for her in the future whatever she chooses to do!  Good Luck, Jill

I hate to say but I think over the next year, several other longtime (i.e older) show hosts will be leaving "to spend time with my family".  QVC is passing the baton to the next generation.  They have to put younger faces on air if they want to attract a younger, as in 30's and 40's, customer.

I know exactly what Jill is saying.  There doesn't have to be anything drastic or bombastic, it's just a knowing when it's time.  I had the same feeling at 55 and retired in March of last year.  Never looked back, no regret - it was time and the right decision.  I'm excited for her.

She has made her money, now time to smell the roses.
