I wear my Wanderer bracelet almost daily, for three years now. It has a lot of meaning for me! I had just graduated college and had made the choice to move back in with my parents for a few months to save money before I made the move to D.C. My parents' farm is in the middle of nowhere in East Tennessee, and I was desperate for a getaway that would reinvigorate me. I stumbled into this shop called White's Mercantile on 12th Avenue in Nashville. I didn’t plan to buy anything that day, but I noticed the bracelets by the cash wrap. I picked up one and it said "wanderer." It was a sign for me that I was on the right track, and that I would always have a wandering spirit. It’s been almost three years, and it reminds me every time I wear it that’s it’s okay to feel like a hopeless wanderer.
