Getting rid of furniture or clothes was a breeze. Picking books to part with? Well, I would have rather had a root canal! I was really dreading the book downsizing part of going tiny and minimalism. Having well over 600 books, many of which are […]
The downsizing has officially commenced, you guys. And when I say that everything must go I promise that is not an exaggeration. In fact, my coworkers have even commented on how I have take over the local yard sale pages! What Stays? What Goes? As […]
When Tim and I decided to get out of Florida, we were living in a 5 bedroom 2 bath house. Our house was huuuuuge when it was just the two of us but perfect when everyone was visiting. And this is something we kept in […]
A new year means a chance for renewal, growth, and change. Every year we make lists of what we want to do. We take maps and dot where we want to go. We make plans. And every year it seems few of us stick to […]
If you’ve been to the Volunteer State in the last couple of years, you might have noticed all the new distilleries that are popping up. From Nashville to Memphis to Gatlinburg, it seems that whiskey is on the rise in Tennessee and we couldn’t be […]
Photos by The Tennessee Whiskey Trail The Tennessee Whiskey Trail For as long as I can remember, Tim and I have wanted to do the Kentucky Bourbon Trail. And since we moved to Tennessee, it is something we could certainly do for a weekend trip! […]
We are not all travel and history at CircaWanderlust. We have a nerdy, binge watching, Netflix watching side too. It is no secret that Tim and I are huuuuuuge Stranger Things fans. Like, we may have both requested off so we can binge Netflix October […]
A few weeks ago, Tim and I participated in the Cotopaxi Questival in Knoxville. We had so much fun doing it and made some great friends along the way. And I know what you are thinking… “what the hell is that?” We had a lot […]
So what is the big deal? Why does everyone want to go tiny? I have no idea! But I can tell you why Tim and I have heavily, heavily considered going tiny.
Cooking is something very personal if you think about it. And it requires a lot of trust. No matter where you grew up or what your cultural background is, we all have comfort foods that make the worst of days better.
My first time in Mexico was a press trip to cover Celebrity Chef Week at Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto for The Fairtytale Traveler. Having recently binge watched every Anthony Bourdain travel episode on Netflix, I was STOKED when this trip came up.
Independence Day weekend is almost here y’all! A patriotic day filled with cut off shorts, BBQ, water melon, and a side of relish that makes us all shine a little brighter. I always feel like it is summer’s official coming out party. Grab your potato […]
I think we all can agree that real, true, authentic Mexican Cuisine is some of the most simple and yet flavor filled food out there. Each region has its own personality and profile, so when I spent some time in Loreto, Baja Sur for a […]
The feeling you get when you have a full tank of gas and endless possibilities of where to go is one of my favorite! It’s a freedom. This playlist is your go to for open roads that take you into the sunset.
I am a Millennial. That weird little group of people who are made out to be whinny, needy, and unsure of what they want. We are the generation rewriting Hemingway’s anthem of “Lost boys and girls” and whether we are succeeding or failing miserably is […]
Some interstates are infamous, they have gone down in pop culture and are part of the Americana fabric woven by so many family roads trips and truck stops on state lines. I-75 is not one of those, and it certainly isnt world known for being […]
Every summer when we would go visit my grandparents in Colombia, I would watch VH1 before I went to bed. Colombian VH1 ran rerun episodes of “The Secret Diary of a Call Girl” and I fell in love with London through this show. It didn’t […]
I loved the movie Beethoven when I was growing up, especially the scene where the house party comes to a sudden stop when the dog basically pulls the deck off of the house. This playlist is what I would listen to, if I had a […]
Since as long as I can remember, I’ve had a love affair with mountains. When my wanderlust kicks in, I always feel the mountains calling my name with their fresh crisp air and beautiful views. This is a playlist that smells like fresh air and […]
My junior year of college, I did study abroad in Istanbul and it was the best decision I made in college (aside from perusing Tim when I thought I had no chance). And Istanbul’s nights for me are a cross between 80’s dance music, European […]
