Pretty Ordinary Friday #36

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!

5. “This past weekend, Mak and I celebrated our 5th anniversary with a weekend getaway to Nemacolin Woodlands Resort. I found out the building was modeled after the Ritz in Paris. How gorgeous! And, for Bachelor fans, this was one of the stops in JoJo’s season!.” -Valerie

Whole Food's Lily & Val greeting card display at the South Hills store in Pittsburgh, PA, Penne pasta home cooked meal, just because flowers in yellow, pink and orange7“It was so exciting to walk into my local Whole Foods that had it’s grand opening this week and see a full display of our cards! They are also carrying our Keepsake Kitchen Diary and featuring it in their “local artists” section. So awesome!” -Maureen

8. “I had a very rare night by myself with nothing to do so I treated myself to my favorite pasta ever. It is SO easy to make, but tastes divine! Whole wheat pasta, sausage, kale, chicken stock and pecorino romano cheese are the only ingredients!” -Maureen

9. “A dear friend who moved to North Carolina a few years ago sent me “just because” flowers. I adore the colors and even better…I’ve managed to keep them alive for more then a week!” –Maureen
