Home Is Where the Heart Is

 The concept of home is different for everyone.
  For some, home is where the family is. It’s the place where weekends were—or still are—filled with baby snuggles, bedtime stories and Saturday morning cartoons. The place where the smell of bacon and pancakes fills the air on Sunday mornings, "do your homework before you go outside" is a daily mantra and…

The Maker Movement

The maker movement has taken hold, and suddenly it seems like we are all makers in one way or another. If you knit sweaters, brew your own beer or build birdhouses out of old shingles and paperclips, you qualify. Join the club, friend. You’re one of us!

A Season of Giving

December is a lovely month in and around Baltimore. Sure, occasionally we're hit by snowstorms of apocalyptic proportions that shut down life for days, or weeks, on end, but that doesn't happen very often. 

A Time to be Thankful

Thankful: it’s a word that gets tossed around a lot this time of year, as November arrives and 2017 draws to a close. And although it typically marks the winding down of the year, November is also a season of beginnings. This month begins the season of giving and the season of receiving. It begins the season of family gatherings…

Fall into October

With the arrival of October, the hot days of summer are behind us and the cool days of fall lay ahead. It’s time to give the AC a break, close the storm windows and move the coats to the front of the closet. Soon, if they haven’t already, the vibrant greens of July, August and September will fade from the…

If You Can Read This, Thank A Teacher

With the celebration of local men in June and all of our adventures and fun in July, this summer has already been quite an eventful one.

Giving Back

Growing up in New York, I played sports year-round. There were a lot of good athletes in our area, and there were a few great ones. And then there was B.J. Surhoff. I had the dubious honor of playing baseball against him in high school, and it was a humbling experience!

A Great Month to be a Guy

As June arrives, we realize we’ve nearly made it through half the year—and wonder how that could be possible! It feels like just yesterday we were thinking about New Year’s resolutions and Valentine’s Day gifts. Now, we’re planning for summer—long days and warm nights, grilling, pools and everything else the year’s middle months bring along.
