SAY HELLO TO THE LILLS!
After traveling in our 1978 VW Bus for over 2+ years, life led us to a 1961 GM Bus in the New Mexico desert. We’re now converting it into a home on wheels!
Come along with us, as we educate ourselves and share alternative views on life, love, energy, food and travel.
DAYS OF BUS BUILD
We’re those “weirdos” you hear about that go to all costs to save any life, even a fly’s. Every living creature is someone having an experience. When it comes to unharmful bugs and animals, we never understood why people would go out of their...read more
Susie Lill introduced us to lemon bars and we’ve come up with our very own twist! Rather than using all purpose flour we use almond flour and instead of using butter, we use coconut oil. These treats definitely hit the spot and still give us the lemon bar flavor...read more
Before moving into our first house as a married couple, we discussed our many possible futures and the things we’d like to manifest in our life. We decided to hold the same picture in our minds, of a horse in our backyard and a VW bus to putt around in. Two...read more
On Christmas day 2013, we took our second road trip in our newly acquired VW bus to Sarasota, Florida for the holidays. After 9 hours of driving, we finally made it to our destination…and our brakes went “spongy”. We needed repair before getting back on the road, so...read more
We’ve always loved making and enjoying potato pancakes and apple pancakes, but we had never tried cauliflower pancakes with parsley and Greek yogurt before. The cheese really makes them and it turns out they are super easy to whip up and they make a perfect...read more
Our pup Sunday loves Moksha, our VW Bus. So much in fact, we think she’s convinced it’s hers and we humans are simply here to drive her around. It had been in and out of the mechanic shop as we worked on making it bullet proof and each time it returned she...read more
Most humans these days begin life in a box, they live in a box, they go to school in a box, they usually work in a box and then they die and are often put in a box. It makes us wonder why we’re on such a gorgeous planet if everyone likes boxes so much. We might...read more
Lee (known as “Abuelo” to family) has had quite a life and we have been fortunate to have him as a grandfather, friend and mentor. He was born in 1931 as the youngest in a family of 11 who lived in a small coal-mining town. One day his father left for work...read more
Our first time foraging for wild chanterelle mushrooms was so much fun. A design client and friend of ours invited us to his beautiful property on an island in South Carolina. We went just to the edge of the forest and there were patches of golden mushrooms...read more
It’s as though we’ve become more light and airy since avoiding heavily processed/junk food. By eating healthier and smaller meals throughout the day, our stomachs have gotten smaller and we get full much faster. That doesn’t mean every now and then...read more
We used to always boil our artichokes and whip up some classic hollandaise sauce, but recently we’ve enjoyed baking the hearty vegetables. With a simple recipe including only a few ingredients, we’ve found we don’t even need a sauce for these tasty...read more
Before saying “I Do” in 2010, the two of us agreed to never work separately or at nine to five jobs again. We agreed to put all of our energy into creating a successful self-owned and operated design business and we dreamed of (one day) having a horse in...read more
Epsom salt is incredible. It’s a mineral compound that can be used in so many ways. We enjoy putting it in our hot baths to relax muscles and relieve body pains. Bathing with epsom salt also relieves bloating, lets the body absorb good minerals and draws out...read more
For our third wedding anniversary, we traveled to one of our favorite destinations in the Bahamas. Great Abaco is part of a 120-mile–long chain of islands and is a sailor’s paradise. It’s part of the northern Bahamian islands and there are so many...read more
We’re excited to introduce Soul’s Life Adventure, a series. Our main character is a soul named Soul and he’s about to go on an adventure called life. He has his own perspective, he does his research and he’s not afraid to question things, learn, find solutions and...read more
When the two of us said “I Do” in 2010, we vowed to spend this life together and change our lifestyle drastically. We got rid of all of our belongings, started a design business and began our married life in a small town that we’ve never lived in...read more
About a month into meeting each other in 2005, we packed up our minimal belongings and moved to a place neither of us had been to before: Folly Beach, South Carolina (also known as “the edge of America”). With little money and no financial backing, we...read more
Our story begins when we were born, which happened to be at the same hospital in Dallas, Texas. Both of our families only stayed a few years in the state before moving and it took us until we were 19 and 23 years old to finally cross paths in Connecticut. Although we...read more
We joined Instagram in 2019 under the handle @thelillslife and have been posting photos and videos of our adventures since then! See a few of our latest posts below and see our full Instagram page here: @TheLillsLife
