MEET SCOTIA OUR TRAVELING CAT

When the two of us headed out of South Carolina and began our cross-country adventure, we brought our dog, Sunday, along for the ride. She was so easy going, friendly to everyone and she loved having the whole back of our VW bus to herself. We camped in Alabama and...

NEW ORLEANS TRAVEL VIDEO

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...

ADHD IS NOT REAL

The father of ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) decided to admit right before dying, the disease is fictitious and not real. Leon Eisenberg explained millions of children were prescribed powerful mind-altering drugs that made pharmaceutical companies...

PUBLIC DISPLAY OF AFFECTION

When it comes to PDA (public display of affection), we feel the more people that show love, the better. Humans often learn through example. If everyone continues to show separation, and express more desire for individuality than togetherness or love, how can we expect...

STAR SEEDS

Have you ever heard of a star seed? It is the name given to those who carry light, good energy and are here to help raise the vibration. Any time we can converse with, inspire and show love towards our fellow man we are doing “light work”. We can all be...

HONEY LEMON BRUSSELS SPROUTS RECIPE

Brussels Sprouts can go wrong so very quickly when it comes to cooking them. We finally figured out a great way to sweeten them up and change their flavor profile up a bit! Now, we can’t get enough and have even gotten the thumbs up from a certain family member...

THE LILLS MINIMALISM JOURNEY

Half of the world is living on the equivalent of 50¢ to $1 a day. Many are living without access to clean water, without nutritious food and/or without a roof over their head. These truths and our desire to tap deeper into our true selves, led us to our minimalism...

ALMOND DATE ROLLS RECIPE

Have you ever had an almond date roll? Back in the day, we used to love to go by our local organic grocery store and get them. Now we make them at home because the recipe is super simple! Dates have supposedly been cultivated since 6000 B.C., so you know…

SAYING GOODBYE TO SOCIAL MEDIA

Most social media platforms are relationship and behavior databases. They are usually free because it’s not money they’re after, it’s tracking, it’s collecting information, learning human behavior, gathering human data and understanding...

CHEAHA STATE PARK ALABAMA TRAVEL VIDEO

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. Our VW bus, Moksha, took his time lugging us, our pup and our cargo. We later found out that 20 mph...

NO REALLY, WHERE IS THE LOVE?

In America, most children are born and almost immediately after, their parents leave them and head back to work. The time apart certainly does add up. So much so, we can’t expect anyone to know what love is or how to express it. It isn’t taught in school...

BAKED FALAFEL SALAD WITH AVOCADO TAHINI RECIPE

We used to get the most amazing falafel in Jersey City, when we worked in NYC, but a good Falafel is pretty hard to find, so we like to make our own. Sometimes we fry them, but this time we enjoyed freshly baked falafel on a bed of spinach with tomato, cucumber and...

IDEAS ON TAP

There are examples of archaeological patterns of like-creations popping up around the world at the same time. Human beings were creating bowls for food around the world in similar timeframes, with no ability to communicate between the geographic landmasses. It’s...

ARTISAN BREAD vs COMMERCIAL BREAD

Have you ever heard of a German brotform? It’s a spiral proofing basket, used to style rising bread. The coiled basket helps support the dough and results in a beautiful texture and look. This specific bread we purchased from an artisanal bread maker who...

VW BUS OIL CHANGE

Every 3,000 miles (1,500 if driven hard), we’re supposed to change Moksha’s oil. It’s the life blood of an air/oil cooled VW Bus. We parked him on a flat surface, put a drip pan under the drain plug, opened it up and let it roll. Subscribe to The...

BODY AND SOUL

The two of us found out what is was like to have an out-of-body experience. In one fell swoop, it became clear to us the difference between our physical bodies and the operator inside. Enjoy our Body And Soul post below! Often time we express “my body...

LIKE-NEW IS BETTER FOR THE ENVIRONMENT

Rather than supporting the addition of more new products on the globe, we’ve made a vow to invest in like-new clothing and items, all which have character and can’t be found in this season’s catalog or at the store next door. We feel so silly having...

TREAT DAY MINI QUICHE RECIPE

These mini quiches are the perfect finger food and they are so delicious, we can never eat just one. They are great to share and we also highly recommend these little fancy treats for parties or get-togethers. Enjoy our mini spinach mushroom tomato quiche recipe...

VW BUS INTERIOR MAKEOVER

One of the larger and more exciting changes to our VW bus, Moksha, was to his interior. We ripped out every piece of furniture, panel and layer until he was completely bare-bones. We cleaned him out and we put in dampening material to reduce noise and increase...

SAYING GOODBYE TO WATCHING T.V.

Media and commercials certainly do influence people and studies show the average American spends years of their life watching television. The introduction of online TV opened up another huge channel of influence and now, over 65% of the worldwide population is glued...

OREGANO OIL BENEFITS

We recently learned about and tried using oregano oil. It’s a natural antiseptic, full of antioxidants and it treats infections. Supposedly, it’s also an anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal and can eliminate negative organisms in the body when taken daily. It...

THE BEST SEX EVER

We recently read some spiritual information regarding sex and the coming together of two souls. Supposedly (and it makes sense), when we have sex, we’re not just coming together physically, but also spiritually. We leave impressions on one another and the closer...

TOSTONES (TWICE FRIED PLAINTAINS) RECIPE

After visiting Puerto Rico, we fell in love with tostones (twice fried plaintains). Plantains are like bananas, but firmer and less sweet. We had no idea how absolutely delicious they are when cooked right. When we left Puerto Rico and made it back to the mainland, we...

VW BUS WINDOW DECAL

When Hurricane Matthew died down and we received news the electricity was back on in our area, we slowly trekked home through the aftermath. Despite being under water, nothing seem too worse for the wear. Once the house was inspected, we learned there was more water...
