Weekend in Atlanta

Being able to driving to other states and amazing cities is one of the many advantages of living in the south. Tyler had a class in Atlanta for his physical therapy license, which meant a quick weekend trip to Georgia, a state I had never been. We checked into the only boutique hotel in downtown Atlanta, The Ellis Hotel. Although the room was a bit small (And I don’t know if I would classify it as luxury), it was a...

Always Wander (Part I)

My husband Tyler and I believe that when a vacation is over, depression sets in and the only way to cure it is to book your next trip. Right after our honeymoon (we went to Spain, Morocco, and Germany), we booked a trip to Iceland for six months later. While we were in Spain during our honeymoon, we met two Norwegians (Chris and May) through my cousin who is Norwegian and became fast friends. They have also experienced this vacation depression and on their...

Waremakers is a Spanish based online marketplace and magazine with a mission to promote a culture of buying fewer, but better lasting goods. I feel in my younger years, I was ok buying items that may have been less expensive, but didn’t last that long. Now, I want quality items that will last and Waremakers is doing just that. They seek out independent producers throughout Europe to offer one online platform for premium men’s, women’s and home goods with exceptional...
