My husband and I moved to Baltimore shortly after we were married in an effort to put some distance between our families, get closer to my work (which at the time was supposed to be moving to Maryland a LOT sooner than it actually is -- we're moving next month, in fact), and to explore a city we've never lived in before. As a big Laura Lipman fan, I was really excited to be moving to Baltimore, despite the crime rates and it's outward ghetto-ness.
We thought we'd only be in Baltimore for about a year, and we would move from there to New Orleans, our favorite city in the whole world. However, things kept getting in the way. Before we knew it, it was time to renew our lease and decide whether or not to stay in Baltimore. We ended up staying, but went with a much more "house-like" apartment in the Mt. Washington neighborhood of Baltimore City, instead of our renovated warehouse in the heart of Downtown Baltimore and found ourselves slowly falling more and more in love with "Charm City".
So now, it's been about a year and a half or so since we came to Baltimore, and we've decided to stay put, settle down and buy a house. We've found the house, now we're going through the buying process and hoping that everything goes through. This blog is mostly for historical purposes: to track the experience, show off our house and act as a creative outlet.
Pictures and plans to come!
