Hi, I’m Terri! I am from and currently live in the DMV area (D.C., Maryland, Virginia).
The older I get (ugh, 29), the harder it is to find a lifestyle blogger who is similar to me. Most bloggers my age fall into two categories: they’re married with kids or they’re single and constantly out and about with fewer commitments.
That doesn’t mean I don’t want to follow them, but I feel that I’m missing a connection with someone who has a lifestyle more similar to mine - not married but in a serious relationship, not interested in kids, and wants to travel and live their best life by experiencing as much as possible.
So, I created this blog as an outlet for any other misfit who happens to love wine, travel, and life but doesn’t necessarily always relate to some of the content out there. I hope you find a place with me.
Wine has become a lowkey passion and hobby of mine over the past few years - I love going to wineries, LOVE going to wineries. I love trying different wines from different countries and learning about cultures simply through taste. It is truly an awesome experience.
I feel the same way about wine as I feel about classical music. Both are assumed to be “high-brow,” but that shouldn’t restrict anyone from appreciating or loving them. I am a firm believer that if others took the time to demonstrate how to taste wine properly or explain the nuances of Beethoven’s 5th Symphony, more people could find enjoyment without judgement.
I am by no means even close to being a sommelier nor do I really want to go down that path. If anything, I would love to own a small winery/wine bar one day where there will be lots of live music, conversation, and good friends. Maybe one day I’ll go after a WSET certification. But for right now, enjoy my little ramblings on wine, travel, and everything else - life in between glasses.
Welcome to Between the Wines.
