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? We’re not sure, but we find it pretty amazing that we both entered planet Earth at... THE LILLS DALLAS TEXAS ADVENTURE 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

THE LILLS NEW ORLEANS ADVENTURE

Before heading out of South Carolina, we decided to use the first few days of our trip to take a breath and shake off the residue of having lived and worked from a house for seven years, which is how we built The Lills Design and our 24-7/365 lifestyle. We made our... THE LILLS NEW ORLEANS ADVENTURE See the full post

THE LILLS CHEAHA STATE PARK ALABAMA ADVENTURE

Our first stop on our cross-country journey from South Carolina was to the highest point in Alabama, also known as Cheaha State Park, with an elevation of 2,407 feet.

THE LILLS HURRICANE MATTHEW ADVENTURE

It’s always being made clear to us: the universe has a plan. After months of our VW Bus being at the shop, we were able to pick him up, literally a day before Hurricane Matthew hit our little town. It was absolutely incredible to evacuate just in the nick of time. We... THE LILLS HURRICANE MATTHEW ADVENTURE See the full post

THE LILLS STRAWBERRY PICKING ADVENTURE

We’ve heard a lot about how common grocery store fruits, like strawberries, are often covered in pesticides, genetically modified and look and taste different than what nature intended. We were really able to understand the difference when we visited our local... THE LILLS STRAWBERRY PICKING ADVENTURE See the full post

THE LILLS HUNTING ISLAND ADVENTURE

Hunting Island State Park is one of the most beloved parks and beaches in SC. The barrier island is 5,000 acres long and due to erosion, has a very unique and picturesque beach with the tree line right on the sand. People love to camp at Hunting Island and many people...

THE LILLS SMOKY MOUNTAINS ADVENTURE

For our fifth wedding anniversary we headed to North Carolina to take in some mountain air. We boarded the Great Smoky Mountains Railroad, enjoyed first class and took in some spectacular views, like the Nantahala Gorge. Although the water was noted as 32 degrees, we...
