by | Inspiration, The Lills

About a month into dating each other, we moved to the beach and (with little money and no financial backing) began our first design business, screen-printing original graphic designs on organic tees. We spent 24 hours a day together and lived in a one bedroom beach bungalow by the ocean. We loved what we were doing, we just didn’t want to be starving artists forever.

The pressure to make a buck eventually put us in a position to find other forms of income. We worked together in sales, advertising and eventually, we took separate jobs that paid better. Not one job either of us have ever had was worth the energy we expended, but we sure learned a ton.

It wasn’t until we became Mr. and Mrs. Lill that we were finally able to say no to typical jobs and began building our second design company. In a matter of months, we were able to start creating the 24-7/365 lifestyle (a simple life with big adventures) we had dreamed of from day one.

Since 2010, we have owned and operated our business, The Lills Design, which has allowed us to spend every single day and night together. Every morning, we wake up, smile at each other and begin our day, together. We don’t remember the last time we asked how each other’s day was. We work together, sleep together, eat together, we even take our baths and showers together. In truth, it’s been an absolute privilege getting to know one another on this deep of a level.

By being together all of the time, it is as though we have melted into one. We have found a rhythm and a formula that has changed the way we look at life and we’re so excited to share it all. We feel that if we had spent all of these years separately or had put that energy into other places, we wouldn’t have been able to grow as a couple at the rate we have, which is why we’re stuck like glue. We love it and recommend everyone getting closer together.
