About Me

Welcome to Growing Up Gabel! I’m so glad you stopped by.

My name is Camille Gabel and I am 30-something wife, blogger and stay at home mom to Ella (2006) and Miles (2008).  My husband, Mitch, and I have been married for over a decade and we have lived in Las Vegas, Nevada for almost that entire time.  I hail from the great state of Michigan (Go Blue!), but can’t say that I miss the weather.

Prior to blogging and mommyhood, I worked for a small tour operator (a type of travel agency) and had the amazing opportunity to travel in the Middle East.  While that job was the best one I’ve ever had,  I decided I needed to find a job that could actually pay the bills so I went to law school.  It was during law school that I met and married my husband.  After graduating from law school, we moved to Arizona and finally landed in Las Vegas.  We love living in Las Vegas and I love sharing a “native” side to the city on my blog.

I started this blog in 2007 as a means of sharing our lives with our families on the east coast.   I started discovering other blogs and realized that I loved blogging!  It provides me with an outlet for sharing my writing and creativity.   I am a busy mom and wife and the older I get, the less time I seem to have.  Trust me, if I can cook, create, sew, make, and go – then so can you!  I am almost entirely a self-taught cook, knitter and crafter and learned because I wanted to.  I hope that what I share here is an inspiration that you can do it, too!

I am passionate about University of Michigan sports, knitting, and traveling.  I hope someday to get back to traveling the world but for now our travel involves national parks, tents and an occasional theme park.   Thank you so much for stopping by and taking a look around my site!
