Hi! Welcome to Clovers, Lilies, and Love! I’m so glad you dropped in to our corner of the world! This site has been a huge labor of love and I am so excited to share it with you. Lots of time, thought, and creativity has been put in to the making of this site so we hope very much that you enjoy it as much as we do.
My name is Ellen and I am the primary author of this website. My husband will also be contributing his knowledge as I seek it out. Clovers, Lilies and Love is not an overnight decision. This site has been something I have been thinking about for a very long time. The content you will find is very near and dear to my family and we look forward to sharing our world with you.
The name of the site is my absolute favorite thing about this entire adventure. When I was trying to come up with a name, we were tossing around names that related to cooking (Chow Time), saving money (Pretty Pennies), and dogs (Raising Thor). However, I knew I wanted a site that encompassed all of these things and more, so I needed a name that did not limit us. That’s when Clovers, Lilies, and Love was born. Clovers have two meanings in my life. My husband is Irish and has a clover tattoo on his forearm. Clovers are his “thing”. He is my world so it is only natural to include him. The more I thought about clovers, the more I realized how fitting they really are. Many people search their entire lives for their special “clover”. I was blessed enough to have found mine. Lilies are also special to our love story. When we were first learning about each other, we were amazed at how much we had in common. The one that stuck out the most and really stuck was the Lily, our favorite flower. Our porch is lined with lilies he has bought me over the past two years. Lilies are our flower and I want to share that beauty with all of you. Then there is Love, the one thing that binds this whole thing together. Without love, I would be lost. I am showered with LOVE every day from my son, my husband, and even our crazy little pup. Now I want to share all of that love with every one of you.
There are many things we plan to share with you over time. There are lots of ideas running around in our heads and on our laptops. However, if you have specific requests of things you would like to see, please feel free to leave a comment and let us know.
Again, we are so glad you found us and we hope you will continue with us on this incredible journey we call life. Please be sure to say hello, let us know where you are from, and how you found us!
