A bit of Baltimore

A bit of Baltimore

Hello everyone! For the past few weeks I have relocated to the beautiful Baltimore, Maryland for my internship at Girl’s Life Magazine. Basically, it’s a magazine aimed at pre-teen and teenaged girls that discusses beauty, fashion, relationships, health, and confidence. I was lucky enough to land the internship for six weeks this summer, and it’s been great so far! I get to do book reviews, pitch article ideas, write articles, and pretty much learn the ins and outs. It’s pretty cool!

One of the main reasons I took the internship (besides the obvious experience part) is because my grandparents live in Baltimore. I figured this would be the perfect opportunity to spend time with them. As an added bonus,I didn’t need to rent a place to stay. Needless to say, the past few weeks have been pretty great, and now I’m on my own (my grandparents split their time between Baltimore and Italy) learning how to be an independent adult.

This past week I’ve discovered that I am capable of cooking delicious meals all by myself, and that I can function on my own. Overall, it’s been a real eye opening experience. I’ve taken a few photos of my surroundings (not many), and I thought I’d share the beauty of this city with all of you. Most of my time is spent in the Harbor area, but hopefully I’ll expand my experiences further outside this soon enough. So, without further ado, enjoy!

Spring is in Full Bloom

Spring is in Full Bloom

One of my favorite times of the year is when all the flowers start to bloom and everything is filled with color. From the green grass to the pink and purple flowers, everything just seems a bit brighter and happier. I can’t help but feel cheerful when I look around at the beauty of nature and see it coming to life. I know it’s cliche, but I feel like there is something hopeful about the emergence of new life sprouting all around me.

I recently went to a garden center with my mom so that we could buy some plants for our deck and add a bit of color to our backyard. While at browsing around, I was awed by the enormity of varieties that nature has to offer. There were so many kinds of flowers, herbs, vegetables, etc. And while I wasn’t exactly surprised by this assortment, I was astounded that they could all blend together so harmoniously to create a picture of beauty. It was an overcast day, but everything still looked amazing, so I took some photos to capture this loveliness.

As the saying goes “April showers bring May flowers.”

Ciao for now!
