Besides the monsoon that wen’t down yesterday, it’s been heating up to sundress weather in my beautiful hometown of Baltimore, MD. You know us b-more folks love to get out, eat crabs and hang by the harbor when it gets warm, but what about a good ‘ol road trip from Charm City to say, the Delaware Coast? Or perhaps tapping into your hippy side at a festival like the Charm City Folk & Blue Grass Fest? Well if you’re looking for something fun to do with your boo, friends, or family, check out this quick starter guide on day trips…

A lot of people have a lot of questions about my seemingly as-of-late nomadic lifestyle. While my base for quite some time was D.C. and Maryland (Bmore heeey), after my mom passed away in August 2015, it no longer felt like home.

  Let’s keep this short and sweet. I have a confession: I suck at blogging. Not the writing part, I’ve got that down pat. The daily blogging of it all. This little blog, and travel, they’re my passions, so I’ve got to treat them better. I was reading a post by Ty Alexander, a.k.a and b.k.a GorgeousinGrey.com, and she gave great advice about nurturing your relationship with your readers, and them being able to trust you for content. I’ve been like a bad boyfriend to y’all, inconsistent at best. Personal setbacks, being busy with my career, a new love (that…
