It's rather rainy which I am sure will encourage the spring blossoms that are starting to pop. However, there are many mornings where the sunrise is just as beautiful as the recent sunrise here in this picture.

As I woke up on this first day of spring, I couldn't help but feel excitement about the welcome changes spring brings and how the daily sunrise generates those same feelings. Even though the sun rises every day, each sunrise is not the … (0 comments)

How the 2010 Calvert County Real Estate Market is Doing So Far - As I do every month, I was updating cumulative stats I keep for the Calvert County Real Estate Market from local MLS data from Metropolitan Regional Information Systems, Inc.  today.
