Easter, 1969 a real #TBT for you. Of course it was before selfies so dad took the photo. Also, I know it says May 1969 on it and Easter was April 6th that year; it took our parents, a month to get them developed!
Who remembers taking their rolls of film in to get them developed? Who has no idea what I am talking about?
Send us YOUR past Easter or present Spring photos!
Happy Easter / Spring to you and yours

Happy Monday! Something for you to think about this week. How does clutter affect your life?
Joshua Fields Millburn defines clutter as anything that “does not add value” to his life.
Marie Kondo describes clutter as those things in her home that “do not spark joy.”
Peter Walsh goes even further, saying that clutter is anything that “interferes with the life you could be living.”
And William Morris says it this way: “Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.”
How do YOU define clutter?

Yeah!! Crab Season! 🤗🦀🤗🦀🤗🦀
And a reminder of the 10 commandments of Maryland crab feasts:
#1 When buying crabs, order mediums when you’re having guests over. Order larges for you and your better half. Order jumbos when ain’t nobody within 500 feet. And smalls are just rude.
#2 Every picking style is both right and wrong. Legs first? Apron first? Butter knife? Mallet? Vinegar? Save your claws to the end? Just don’t wear a bib.
#3 Once you touch a crab, IT'S YOURS. None of this weighing-each-crab-with-your-hand stuff. Like the guy who guesses your weight at a carnival, use your eyes, fatty.
#4 With pizza, everyone gets the same number of slices. But with crabs, it’s like: 3...2...1...EVERYONE EAT AS MANY CRABS AS YOU CAN AND SCREW THOSE SLOW EATERS!!
#5 You’re being monitored. By everyone. Not cleaning your crab completely? You’ll get called out. Not eating your claws? You won’t be invited back.
#6 Don’t dare ask anyone to pick a crab for you. You pick crabs for yourself. If you’re a newbie, we’ll teach you ONCE, so pay attention. If you pull off a meaty backfin, show it off! If you cut yourself, keep eating. No tears.
#7 If you leave the table to wash your hands, you become everyone’s personal slave until you’re back. Take orders, clear shells, get hair ties. Grab me another drink!
#8 Crabs are just an appetizer. Three hours of snacks before you fire up the grill. Have some corn, shrimp, tomatoes, and Utz chips and dip in the meantime.
#9 The last man/mom standing at the table gets bragging rights. “You guys done already?” she asks. Respect.
#10 If you’re invited to a crab feast, that means you’re special. We don’t just invite anybody over. It’s love. Be sure to say, “Good crabs!” or “Really full!” or “Lots of mustard!” even when they’re crap.
*and NEVER, EVER, say “I only eat the claws” and proceed to pull them off the crabs in the pile or you’ll be shot! (Lol)
Steamed crabs are a summertime tradition in Maryland and the season for crabbing has officially begun! Maryland's 2019 recreational crabbing season opened on April 1 for the Chesapeake Bay and its tidal tributaries -- as well as the Atlantic Ocean, coastal bays and their tributaries. The season....
If you think about it, very few things that we own have a lot of value. When you are downsizing, this is not such a cut and dry statement.
Have you thought about downsizing or have you just gone through downsizing?
Did you have trouble letting go of things? When you think about it, what would be the one thing that would be difficult to let go of?

From Nancy Yahner
I Failed …….. Or Did I - You Tell Me!
The past 6 weeks I was involved in a class called BOLD designed to be action based course. There were 110 people who started. You have to complete certain activities each week in order to pass and you are only allowed so many fouls. If you go over the number of fouls allowed you do not graduate.
The activities are things like reading an article, practicing role play, reaching out to a determined number of people, prepare for presentations etc. Over the years I have been involved in a variety of classes like this one. As a matter of fact, I have taken this class 2 times before.
You may ask why would a Realtor who has been in business as long as I continue to do these type of things? Well, I believe there is always room to learn and grow and each time I learn something new. I’m sure you have heard the saying about learning when you are ready :)
You know timing is everything :)
Anyhow, I am delighted to say - I did not Graduate. What? Yes, it is true - I failed the class. Still, I stayed to see my team members graduate and to cheer them on. It was so difficult and challenging for me to be present and watch everyone graduate knowing I failed…. or did I?
I don’t believe in excuses so I am not going to give any! What I will share with you is what I learned from failing:
1. Failing forward is not easy
2. Working and learning while experiencing some
challenging times is not easy
3. Saying no is not easy
4. Your life is not always at the top
5. So much emphasis is on performance vs true
6. Touching and impacting lives even when you don’t
feel good is a lot of work and worth it
7. Transparency is not easy
8. Showing up is still one of the best keys to a
9. Rejection is not fun
10. Winning for clients is fun and one of the main
reasons why I continue
11. Living a life of a Realtor for 30 years and still being
humbled is A-OK!
12. Things are not always as they seem
13. Being there for our clients is the only way -
understanding their goals and helping them reach
them is our first priority, always!
14. An attitude of Gratitude is still one of the most
important habits to maintain
15. My teammates that I work with are amazing
16. The company I work with is top notch
17. Being intentional to work by referral has been one of
the best decisions I ever made
18. There is a difference between serving vs pleasing
19. You do not have to be strong 100% of the time
20. Oh, and it is ok to Fail because it is in the failures
that some of our biggest learning lessons come
from and an opportunity for growth presents itself!
Even though I did not graduate this time, I am glad to have experienced the class, especially with my teammates: Judy Lee Fanucci, Stephanie Wardwell, Debbie Gonzalez, Paul Bedewi, Matthew Chamberlin, and Sarah Ritter
A special shout out to My Team Leaders Janet Brinck, Jim Sonnhalter, Nick Lutkins and Teacher Scott Toombs for this last session…. See you next time
