Annapolis Md Homes and More: September's Cloudburst of You

September's Cloudburst of You

For me a few Cloudbursts have come and gone without me jumping on board and taking on the challenge. Now the time is ripe to do so. fall is just around the corner and my focus is more in tune. yep... its time to get back in the groove of 1) blogging, 2) being a part of the community, 3) pushing outside my comfort level.

Wish me well!!


It's starting to feel like Fall around here and I for one am not happy about it.  Don't get me wrong, I love the seasons and Fall is most beautiful but I'm just not ready to say goodbye to Summer quite yet.

Soon we'll see the yellow busses with their wheels going round and round, pumpkins lining our grocery store landscapes and seasonal lattes at Starbucks.  Let's make September a successful one.  Welcome to your monthly challenge.

Martha, I do wish you well. I am on the opposite end.  I'm ready to ignore the challenge, blog less, and engage less.  This community is changing. I'm not seeing the "juice" from posts and my phone is not ringing.  I'm questioning what's really going on and how it will impact our blogging efforts.  You go for it ... I'll be your cheerleader all the way.

Good for you. And, yes, here are strong wishes, but I know you don't need them.  You will succeed.

Oh kathleen I hope not. I know your blogging mojo has been challenged but I still have great faith in AR and all the people here. Hope you join me.

Bridget- Yay. I have been so out of blogging all summer, actually all year, as I focused on my health. Now its time to focus on blogging. :) Glad you are joining me.

Thanks Debbie. I look forward to growing in the rain once again.
