Aimee Lubin is a political affairs professional by day and a writer by night. A Philly native, the only conspiracy theory she believes is that Rocky is a real person. She counts Key West, good bath products, and vanilla coffee creamer as things she can't live without. She lives in Annapolis, MD with her husband, son and two extra large retriever lap dogs. If she goes missing, she's probably hiding behind a charcoal face mask, listening to a true crime podcast.

Concierge Desk: Doubletree by Hilton Annapolis

If you really want to get people trash-talking around Annapolis streets, just ask them where you can get the best cream of crab soup. That question alone is enough to silence a room, sending people to grab their pitchforks, draw their lines of loyalty and prepare for battle. But somewhere in the…

Getting Hitched in Annapolis

If I told you that I hired a wedding planner before my husband actually proposed to me, I wouldn't be lying. Granted, I knew he had the ring somewhere in the house and we had already decided where and when we would be married. However, once engaged, I knew there was simply no way I could handle…
