One Door Closes, Two More Open

Source Today was my last day at CPI. The last year has been a huge learning experience for me and one that I am so grateful to have had. This was the job that saved me when my dream job was going under and then turned into a place that I could call home. I made real […]

Sailing on the Bay

This past week was crazy with the accident and having to deal with all of the insurance paperwork. When Steve’s parents asked if we wanted to go sailing on Sunday on their boat we jumped at the chance. I admit that I was nervous since I hadn’t been on a boat in a very long […]

Fall Loving

As much as I love summer and as grateful as I was to see it come around this year, fall is really my favorite season and I’m so excited that it’s just around the corner. I love everything about it- the colors, the smell of bonfires, pumpkin flavored everything, pumpkin patches, jeans and long sleeves, […]

Oh Hey Friday! I am sooo happy to see you. This is the first weekend in almost TWO MONTHS that I am staying in Baltimore. Granted it will be jam-packed but everything is within a 10 minutes drive from my house. Thank goodness. The best thing about living AND working downtown is the walk to […]

Tin Roof Baltimore

I don’t go out very often. I’m a homebody at heart and having a boyfriend who loves to be at home too definitely feeds into my desire to lounge on the sofa. However, I have made a serious effort this summer to spend more time out and about especially since the weather has been so […]

Baltimore Restaurant Week

Each summer for one week in August Baltimore hosts Baltimore Restaurant Week and I look forward to it each year! Restaurants post their proposed menus online and diners can have either 2 or 3 course dinners for $20 and $30 each! It’s such a deal and I usually make a point to eat out two […]

Weekend Recap: Bridesmaids

I can’t believe its already Monday…again. Mondays are seriously a struggle for me because my weekends have been so great lately. This past weekend started out rough with me being sick with the grossness that my family has had over the past month. I also had some health issues late Friday evening. I was supposed […]
