BE THE POSITIVE EXAMPLE

We got into a really great conversation with a guy a few weeks ago. He was very much about being positive and doing right by others, but he still had an issue with the way some people behave. We explained our view is that if someone is acting in a negative way,... BE THE POSITIVE EXAMPLE See the full post

WASTE NOT, WANT NOT

Global food waste is on the rise and recent studies show, Americans are throwing away 30-40% of their food, which is all sent to landfills. We’ll never forget walking into a big corporate grocery store, watching the employees take a shelf full of rotisserie... WASTE NOT, WANT NOT See the full post

CHIA POWER GEL RECIPE

We’re always looking for more plant based energy foods to eat and drink in place of caffeinated beverages and over-stimulating energy drinks. Chia Seeds happen to pack an incredible amount of natural energy, vitamins and nutrients and can be used in so many... CHIA POWER GEL RECIPE See the full post

ANIMAL DEMOCRACY

A scientific study was done on red deer, showing the incredible way in which they communicate and make decisions. Although there might be a dominate male within the group, they actually don’t look to him to make the calls, but instead vote as a team. When the... ANIMAL DEMOCRACY See the full post

THE LILLS DALLAS TEXAS ADVENTURE

What are the odds that the two of us would be born in the same hospital in Texas, leave the state around the same time and meet in Connecticut when we were 19 and 22 years of age?

Our VW bus didn’t have air conditioning, so we had always just kept the windows down, which circulated natural air pretty nicely... VW BUS SOLAR POWER See the full post

ICE CREAMLESS RECIPES

We used to scream for ice cream all of the time. Now we scream for ice creamless! It’s homemade ice cream without cream and it is absolutely delicious! We have made it with all kinds of different fruits, but we really love the strawberry banana and kiwi banana... ICE CREAMLESS RECIPES See the full post

TIME CHANGES

According to Wikipedia and some recent articles we dove into, standard time as we know it was put in place by the U.S. and Canadian railways just back in 1883. Standard time was written into law in 1918. Before all of this occurred, local towns each followed their own... TIME CHANGES See the full post

LEAP OF FAITH

The two of us were overwhelmed with excitement every single day that it took to get our VW bus geared for our cross-country adventure. We had no fear, just determination. The actual day we headed out, it sank in rather quickly that we were taking a leap of faith. The... LEAP OF FAITH See the full post

THE LILLS NATCHEZ MISSISSIPPI ADVENTURE

When we headed out of the little port town of Beaufort, South Carolina, we didn’t have destinations in mind for our cross-country adventure. We pointed our VW bus away from the coast and just let our hearts be our guides. When we got tired, we looked up nearby... THE LILLS NATCHEZ MISSISSIPPI ADVENTURE See the full post
