Even though I’ve been here for a while, I’ve barely scratched the surface of what it’s like to live here and experience the city. In all honesty, I haven’t exactly fallen in love with the place either…yet?
I suppose it doesn’t help that other life circumstances are less than ideal at the moment, but I’m resolving that personal stuff and family stuff that’s beyond my control will not have bearing on my ultimate opinion of the time I spend stateside.
Our goal isn’t to plant roots here or even to stay long term, but I would like to be able to say that I had a great time while we did live here…Read More »
While every pal loves a bottle of vino to help keep their holidays merry and bright, sometimes it’s nice to give a gift that shows you know and respect them on another level. 2017 has been a year of pushing back against the patriarchy. Show your feminist friend you’ve got their back when the misogynist muck hits the fan with one of these fun feminist finds.
Well my friends, I’ve been living in Baltimore for around a month now. Obvi, I’ve still got plenty more to learn about being a Maryland resident full-time but, I must say, I’ve made a few discoveries in the short time I’ve lived here.
Here’s a highlight reel of some faves. If you come visit me, let me know which you’d like to see together!
First, I arrived here just in time for Canada Day! We headed to Clark Burger to see if their poutine lives up to the genuine article. (It does and it’s delicious.) We were in good company with a number of other Canadians indulging in the name of patriotism. So funny.
Of course, immediately following Canada Day is American Independence Day so I had to try my best to blend in with the crowd in red, white, and blue on the 4th of July. Luckily, the American Visionary Art Museum was hosting a dog/cat show with plenty of fur babies in costume. I was right at home.
I’m still looking for some good off-leash dog trails (hit me up with suggestions) but am having fun checking out some of the local options. Rigby thoroughly enjoyed romping through the river of the Gunpowder Trail.
One of my July highlights was having friends visit and heading to an Orioles game. It was so fun but what I’m REALLY looking forward to is seeing the Blue Jays when they come to town at the end of the summer.
Another highlight was the Artscape art festival. It was humongous! Art exhibits, installations and performances as far as the eye could see. Very cool.
I’m still discovering the little hidden gems that every city reserves for those to stumble across.
Although I’ve moved to new places already a number of times in my life, this is the first time I’m living in a whole new country. What sorts of things do you look for when you’re settling into a new place?
