Chaos Coordinator

Sorry for the silence over the last two weeks. I didn’t know how much I needed a break from writing until I went a week without posting anything to the blog! The past few weeks have been CRAZY. I’ve written before about Harbor Harvest and Oyster Fest, the two biggest events I produce for Waterfront Partnership. You […]

Bachelorette Portraits

Wedding traditions can be funny. Some I whole-heartedly believe in (father/daughter dance) and want to implement into our wedding and others I could care less about (garter toss). I surprised a few people including myself when I made the proclamation that I didn’t want to do bridal portraits. While it’s something that not everyone does, […]

It’s Fall Y’all

On one of Chris and my’s first dates we went to Webers Farm in Parkville. I had mentioned that Fall was my favorite season and I loved it all. The pumpkins, apples, donuts, cider, gourds, hay mazes and hay rides. Yes maybe I’m a little basic but I love it.  So each year we return […]

26.2 Miles of Baltimore

  This past weekend was the Baltimore Marathon and Mary ran in it! Mary is my half brother’s Mother…confusing huh? We just call her my Stepmom to strangers because somtimes a twenty minute explanation is just not in the cards. All you need to know is that she’s my family so it was really cool […]

Week 32: Minestrone Soup

This weeks post is a copycat recipe of Olive Garden’s Minestrone Soup. I love Olive Garden. There it is. I’ve said it. I know it’s nothing like the restaurants in Little Italy and doesn’t hold a candle to the minestrone soups of Italy but I still love it.  I combined a few recipes that I found online […]

Loving Yourself

Self care is something I’ve never really thought about in depth. Get lots of sleep, eat healthy, surround yourself with positive people- that’s what I thought it meant. But really there’s so much more to it. I knew I needed to take a mental health day and love on myself a little when I got […]

Wedding Wednesday Update

  Happy Wednesday everyone! I remember reading other bloggers Wedding Wednesday updates over the past few years and they would post updates every single week! I’m blown away thinking about that now. I don’t want to share every little detail on the blog because I want those attending to still enjoy the experience and not know all […]

Charm City Creatives- Gundalow Gourmet

It’s been a month or so since I shared a new post in the Charm City Creatives series and I’m back with a good one today! Dana Sicko, founder of Gundalow Gourmet is one of the sweetest ladies I’ve had the chance to meet since being in Baltimore as well as a badass business owner […]

Week 31: Cinnamon Applesauce

My favorite snack growing up as a kid was applesauce. We’d have the little Mott’s applesauce cups in the fridge all the time, but they didn’t even compare to my Mommom’s applesauce. She would take a jar of plain applesauce from the grocery store and add about 5-7 other ingredients to make it AMAZING.  I […]
