My name is Camille Gabel and I am a wife, blogger and mom to Ella (2006) and Miles (2008). I also have a beautiful teenaged step-daughter. My husband, Mitch, and I have been married for over a decade and we live in Las Vegas, Nevada.
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. In 2004 I earned both my J.D. Cum Laude from Michigan State University School of Law and gained an Mrs and a new last name.
While, I was born and raised in the great state of Michigan (Go Blue!), I turned in my snow shovel for sunscreen in 2004 when my husband and I moved west to Arizona. We landed in Vegas in 2005 and have been desert dwellers ever since.
I started blogging in 2007 as a means of sharing our lives with our families on the east coast. I quickly realized I could share so much more than just my family on my blog.
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.
