Pretty Ordinary gives you a sneak peek into Lily & Val behind the scenes! On Lily & Val Living!

For the Pretty Ordinary series, we’re documenting snapshots of our week that may not be the prettiest or the most interesting, but we enjoyed each instance and want to remember them! These are the behind-the-scenes, in-between moments – the small peeks that would otherwise be forgotten. Join us as we use this series to scrapbook the unedited, memorable happenings at Lily & Val and what is inspiring our team!

A trip to the beach is the perfect way to finish out the summer! Lily & Val Pretty Ordinary by Val

Left Mak and I took a little road trip this past weekend to Rehoboth Beach in Deleware! It was a nice getaway even though it was quick! -Valerie

Right While in Deleware we discovered Lewes! It was the cutest little town. I fell in love with the candy store “Edie Bees Confection Shop.” All of the glass containers filled with sweets felt so nostalgic and whimsical. -Valerie

Our week wouldn't be complete without cheering on Team USA in Rio! Lily & Val Pretty Ordinary by Val1.  The prettiest petit fours I’ve ever seen at Edie Bees Confection Shop in Lewes, DE! I would love to draw these! -Valerie
