about lilly

About_Me_cropped_picmonkied

Ohh tree, you are hilarious…


Ohh hi…I’m Lilly,
 
like, from the valley. Also of gilded and livered fame. It’s so nice to meet you!
I’m a Los Angeles lovin’ Southern California native currently serving as a Peace Corps Response Volunteer in Guatemala!

Hopefulilly is a place of encouragement and inspiration; a place to reflect, engage, and dream…for you and for me! Stick around for the journey…you won’t be disappointed (unless you are easily annoyed by excessive references to lilies and flowers, and/or don’t appreciate subtle changes to the English language by intentionally misspelling hopefully in run-on sentences, then yes, you will be disappointed)!

Hopefulilly will focus on the following areas, conveniently organized into different categories of lilies. Lucky you!

Microsoft Word - Document1Faith: I am a Christian…a believer in Jesus Christ; a believer in miracles. I believe the Bible is the Word of God. I believe Jesus is the Son of God, and I look forward to clearing up common misconceptions about Christianity and religions in general.

Microsoft Word - Document1Fancy: Possibly the owner of the world’s largest napkin collection – not for the intended purpose of cleaning crumbs off your chin, but for making pretty things!

Microsoft Word - Document1

 

Fitness: Hoping to turn the ancient sport of couch potato-ing into ancient history. I’m not quite sure how this will happen yet…currently I sleep; I work; sometimes I sleep at work (just kidding).

Microsoft Word - Document1Food: Believer in a whole-food, plant-based diet. Aspiring poster-child for healthy eating. Working on eliminating my sweet, sweet enemy sugar. A contemporary quinoa connoisseur.

 

Microsoft Word - Document1Fun: A wannabe writer…
a whimsical wisher…
a why wonderer…
a worldwide wanderer.
A hopeful Lilly…

 

More petals to ponder:

  • Lilly or Lily? Doesn’t bother me, really…
  • I speak-a the Spanish and a lot of the Spanglish; I speak Hebrew-ish; and every now and then will spice it up with bits of Guarani…
  • “I take a lot of pictures”…is a very tall understatement…
  • Crazy cat lady has nothing on this flower fanatic…
