all mapped out.

I mention all the time that we witzs love to travel and hope to do a lot of it in the years to come. Well, our newest project (and home edition) brings that love front and center on our living room wall… literally.

We had been looking since we moved in for something to go over our kitchen table and chairs…okay, truly we had been looking for the table and chairs since we moved in, but since we finally scored an awesome find in those a few weeks back, it was time to move to the wall decor. We bounced around lots of ideas. 1950s downtown Memphis photography…. really, really (and I mean really) expensive. Photos from our wedding…. already one in the hallway and bedroom. A really unique piece of artwork… because that narrows the options down. But we finally settled on this…

Christopher purchased the map at Imus Geographics for 30 dollars. We then took it to Hobby Lobby ( I know everyone, I went into a Hobby Lobby)… to be framed (but only framed, no glass.)  It was about $165. Luckily the backing HL put behind the photo is similar to foam board, so our tacks went into the map easily, without us having to add something extra.

Map Centered

Red means we have already stopped off at that location together. And green means we want to go there together… It makes for our very own personal travel map.

Come September the Witzs are heading West, for my very first road trip. So, several locations will soon get to change from a go to a stop. Let the stateside travel begin!
