I might have made up that word; Wanderlusting.
Wanderlust : Strong longing for or impulse toward wandering.

A strong longing for... that's me.
And that's how I feel lately... Actually that's how I have been feeling for quite some time.
I feel like the older I get the more I feel this way... which is kind of weird because one might think you would feel this way when you
were younger and were actually able to do more wandering.

But anyway.
This is kinda what I dream of.
Of going... travelling... just wandering really.
By myself, with the kids, with my family, with my friends... all of it and any of it really.
Just to go.
To explore and adventure.
To see.

My longing to see and explore and for adventure is nothing outrageous or exotic really.
I am content with wandering an hour away from home, or three hours away from home if that is all that I can squeeze into my life right now, but I definitely dream of bigger trips and adventures, too.
I dream of exploring new cities and States with the kids, of exploring little towns and big towns and all that they are made up of.

I am currently daydreaming of a trip to Nashville and am working on a post all about what I want to do and and see there...
I think it's gonna be a pretty long list!
Please let me know if you are familiar with Nashville or have any suggestions for me.
Daydreaming is really kinda fun.
And Nashville is close enough that I could actually pull that off.... it would be an awesome Road Trip adventure for sure.


Where are you daydreaming of visiting?
Where would you Road Trip to?
Who would you go with?

*All these photos were taken in St. Louis, my favorite close-ish place to adventure to, by the way.


  1. I too enjoy visiting and exploring ….we enjoyed a couples weekend away in Michigan last weekend. Cute little towns of Saugatuck and Douglas ….hope to visit more of Grand Rapids another time. I have a list of cool coffee shops and places to check out there:) Just before visiting your blog I came across this link: http://www.thestrawberrypatchtn.com which is right near Nashville I think…just over an 8 hour drive for me. Love your photos and how you share your thoughts. I always look forward to reading and seeing your blog, thanks.

    1. Elizabeth- I think i saw pictures from your trip to michigan on IG recently right? It reminded me how much I really LOVE michigan and it's on my places to visit soon list again! We fell in love with the beautiful beaches last time we were there! I am going to check out that link right now.... don't think i've ever heard of that blog? thanks for sharing! :) and thank you so much for reading and commenting, i appreciate it!

  2. We went to Nashville one weekend (in 2009) when my husband was in training for the Air Force in Alabama and the kids and I were still living in Illinois with family while he was away. Nashville was kind of in the middle. We went to the Country Music Museum and it was great! My husband is not a country music fan, but he even enjoyed it because there was so much history involved. We also went to the zoo (because we love zoos). We ate at two restaurants that I liked a lot--Jack's BBQ in downtown Nashville and Caney's Fork Fish Camp. We ate at the Fish Camp one twice because my oldest daughter liked it so much. :)

    1. Virginia- I have not been to Nashville for years and years... I am really looking forward to visiting there soon! Thanks so much for the suggestions, the Country Music Museum is definitely on my list of places to visit.... I am not necessarily a huge country music fan(although there is some old school country music I LOVE!) but I am a big music fan in general, so I think that's a must-see!


leave me a comment...you know you wanna.
