I started Local Love and Wanderlust as a way to combine my love for my hometown of Cleveland, Ohio, and traveling. With my background as a designer and photographer, I have a keen eye for well-designed spaces and places, and a love for photographing all of the details from the depths of the Grand Canyon down to the cool vintage phone in our hotel room. My hope is that this blog inspires you to get out there and explore documents, and enjoy your hometown or that dream destination.
I’m Jen. Blogger and photographer behind Local Love and Wanderlust. I live in a cute Cleveland, Ohio neighborhood with my husband and fellow travel-lover. We love exploring Cleveland and keeping a pulse on all things new and interesting in town. From the best restaurants and shops to exploring nature and visiting our ocean-sized Lake Erie.
When I’m not exploring the town, traveling to new ones, or blogging about it you can find me staying on top of pop culture by binging on the next new show, reading, and spending far too much time watching TikTok (thanks, pandemic, sorry Vine), buying plants, and dreaming about traveling again. Before the pandemic, you could also find me in the pit at a show photographing live music and landscapes, boxing, and being a much more social person.
