Saving Money Apps

This time last year Chris and I were back from New Orleans planning our next adventure, to Atlanta! We traveled a lot last year and it’s crazy to think that we spent all of August traveling but haven’t been away since! Six months of no traveling is not normal based on the precedent we set […]

Lions & Tigers & Street Art?

Happy Monday friends! I hope you had a great weekend! It was super warm here in Baltimore on Friday and Saturday but then we had a thunderstorm and hail on Saturday with cooler temps on Sunday…this winter has thrown us all for a loop I think. Chris and I both had off on Friday because […]

Week 8: Pasta Fagioli Soup

This recipe was originally posted in October, but I HAD to share it again. This is hands down my favorite recipe to make in the crockpot and I’d be doing my readers a huge disservice if I didn’t re-post it. Olive Garden’s Pasta Fagioli soup is my favorite so recreating it at home was huge for […]

10 More Instagrammable Bmore Hotspots

It’s no secret that I love Instagram. I currently post on my personal/blog account, The Baltimore Baton, and three work accounts….and I’m always looking for ways to interact with other accounts.   It’s the only social media account that I manage to keep up with and share a decent portion of my life on so it’s […]

Driftwood People

Imagine you’re walking through the woods early in the morning. The sun has yet to rise and a thick fog is rolling in around you. The air feels wet and heavy. With each careful step forward the earth gives way leaving a small trace that you were there. You look up and ahead to make […]

What Breed Fits You Best?

Chris and I have started talking about adding a new addition to the Camillo household. When we moved into the new house in November we realized how much space we have and for the first time in a while, are both in a good place to provide for a baby.  A sweet…cuddly…snuggly…slobbery…four-legged baby that is.  […]

The Magic of Lights

There’s something about lights that makes my heart very very happy.   Maybe it’s the season I associate them with. The magic of the Christmas season filled with so much love and happiness.     Or a glimpse of lingering holiday decorations in February    Maybe it’s the sense of being guided along a walkway towards an […]

Week 7: Chicken Tortellini Soup

Chicken noodle soup is one of my favorite things to make when its cold outside. Whether I’m feeling under the weather or just trying to get warm, its a simple, healthy and delicious meal to make.  To switch things up a little bit I substituted cheese tortellini for the noodles and it was 100% the […]

I went skydiving…

…indoor skydiving!  Are you an adrenaline junky? Do you live off of the feeling of soaring through the air or reaching new heights? I’m not one of those people. I’d rather stay on the ground and watch someone else loop upside down than do it myself. But when my bff Katie turned 30 and she […]

Exploring the Hood- Highlandtown

Three months ago I moved into a new to me neighborhood in Baltimore, Highlandtown. I have always lived within a few blocks from the Inner Harbor and this is about a 10 minute drive. For those not familiar with Highlandtown- its East of Patterson Park and just over Eastern Ave from Canton. It’s quiet, artsy, […]
