Things I will miss from Baltimore

30 June 2015

Our time here in Baltimore is coming to an end sooner than I would like. When my husband decided to join the military twelve years ago we were both excited about the new places we would see and the people we would meet so far we've lived in Whidbey Island, WA., Gulfport , MS, and Baltimore. At each place we have made wonderful friends and have had some amazing adventures which always makes leaving so much harder. Baltimore will always hold a special place in my heart , moving here was kind of scary because of it's reputation but once we settled in we made some amazing friends and at some point fell in love with Charm City. We've had a handful of scary moments (riots) but our best moments definitely surpass them. Here's just a few of the things I will miss ...

 1.  Seasons - the fall here is beautiful from the crisp weather to the colorful trees.
 2.  Federal Hill - great community with a lot of history.
 3.  Protean Records - we were lucky enough to live across the street from this gem and our record           collection has grown tremendously thanks to the great guys at Protean.
 4.  Federal Hill Park - this park has seen a lot of my blood, sweat and tears from the summer boot           camps, watching fireworks on 4th of July , picnics, and sledding down the hill during a snow               storm.
 5.  Light Street Cafe- best breakfast burrito and white chocolate mocha's in town and they are                   ALWAYS open. Only place open during snow storms.
 6.  Knockout Fitness - I searched high and low for a gym that worked for me and I stumbled upon           them while munching on a donut next door and I haven't looked back ever since. I have never             worked so hard in my entire life but I love it and will miss the Nissley boys.
 7. Movies in Little Italy - every summer the cutest neighborhood downtown Baltimore "Little Italy"         projects movies on an old wall along with free popcorn. Last year we went and had a great time.
 8.  Chaos during game day - we live near each of the stadiums and either football or baseball season
      we can sit on our fire escape and watch the crowds walk to and from the game. Our home is                 perfect for people watching. 
 9.  Froyo on every block - If we are craving froyo there is no shortage on places to get it. There is             one on every block which is not good for those late night cravings
10. Row homes - there is so much history here in Baltimore and you definitely see that in every row         home you pass. 
11. Bike parties - every month Baltimore's bicycle lovers get together and ride through the city for a         10 mile bike ride . People come out of there homes and cheer you on as you bike through their              neighborhood. We did it last year and had a blast.
12. Puppy watching - Baltimore residents love their pets and I enjoy walking around and bumping i           into some of the cutest pups I've ever seen.
13. Brunch at Sobo - hands down one of the best brunch you'll have in Federal Hill. 
14. Hiking - so many hiking trails around here that there's always some new trail we find.
15. Abbey Burger Bistro - best burgers in town.


  1. Not sure yet we should find out in Aug. So anxious.


    1. Oh man! I would be anxious too. Keep us posted!

  2. We had a blast in Baltimore when we visited you guys. I absolutely fell in love with your apartment right above CVS! It was hands down one of the most relaxing and memorable of vacations. Thank you for your hospitality.


Thank you for stopping by! Hope to see you again real soon.
