A little about me:  Being such a creative person, my goal through schooling was always to find a job where I would be surrounded by creativity.  Lily and Val is truly a mix of my favorite things: letter writing, hand lettering and chalkboard art.  This year I have discovered new hobbies like calligraphy and DIY, and I graduated college with a degree in Marketing.  I am an avid reader and movie watcher, and if I’m watching TV it is more than likely Food Network Channel.  I feel blessed to have such a close, loving family and I could gush about them all day, but I won’t! I’m thankful and so excited about this new chapter of life!

Coffee or Tea?  

Definitely a Tea girl.  Any caffeine is too much caffeine for me, but I never say ‘never’ to frilly Starbucks drinks!

Cake or Pie?

I’ve always been keen on pie- to eat and to bake!  My mom makes an outstanding apple pie for my birthday every year.

Favorite Christmas Movie?

I can’t name just one!  There are too many that my family and I watch over and over again: The Polar Express, White Christmas, How the Grinch Stole Christmas (both versions!), and It’s a Wonderful Life.  There is also something about Eloise at Christmastime that puts a smile on my face.

Guilty pleasure?

Sour Patch Kids, Gilmore Girls, Lush bath bombs, and QVC- don’t worry, I never buy anything.

Last book you read?

Someplace Safe with Someone Good by Jan Karon

Favorite place to be?

In the company of my whole family!  I have three older sisters and one older brother and it has become rare that we can be all together.  Icing on the cake would be in a small town in Iowa where my Grandma lives.

Words to live by?

“There are far better things ahead than any we leave behind” – C.S. Lewis

Favorite L&V Product? 

I find a new favorite every day!  The holiday recipe prints and the brand new mugs (coming soon!) have knocked my socks off!  I also have a soft spot for the “Joyeux Noel” card because I studied in Paris in for one semester!
