My name is Claire Cilip and I write and produce the blog, Wasting Time Wisely. My family and I have lived in Minneapolis going on five years now and continue to uncover things we love about the Midwest. Growing up in east bay, California gave me an appreciation for food and design and I count myself lucky to have been raised in such a culturally diverse and innovative city. That exposure was what first sparked my interests in all things design. College and young adult years were spent on the east coast where I met my better half and it’s because of his job that our family of 4 are transitioning (and loving life!) in the land of 10,000 lakes.
This blog is a culmination of my passions, writing, photography and design. Stop by anytime to see what currently has my attention as well as our family’s adventures as we continue to grow and experience everything this life has to offer!
