Last Week's Favorites: April 15th-22nd

Real Estate Agent with RLAH Real Estate AB95346


Good morning on this rainy Sunday morning here in Washington, DC!  And we need it badly.  Before I run out to do my Sunday afternoon real estate thing, I thought I'd post the thin that's the most fun to write every week.  There is a collection of new faces and some that are really familiar to us all.  So here goes:

1.  Tristan Gasset: Almost Speechless Sunday- Through The Eyes Of A Child  Watching Tristan grow up on Active Rain has been inspiring!  So is his photo.  Great kid meets great parenting.

2.  William Johnson: Reflection of the Western Sun  William has a great eye for what makes a great photo. 

3.  Christa Hobart: Don't Dump Those Old Tires!  Next time you buy new tires, this is a change from paying the tire store to haul the old ones to the dump.

4.  Brad Andersohn: Gets Reincarnated as Ribbet'  Hmmm.  Are we seeing a photo blogging theme to this week's list? 

5.  Charles Buell:  Tiptoe Through the Tulips on Wordless Wednesday  This is another amazing shot that I found this weeks.  Took me a sec to figure it all out!

6.  Ed Silva:  Unlike Jerry Maguire, My Motto Isn’t ‘Show Me The Money’  Ed's right.  The money is nice, but that's not what it's all about.

7.  Gretchen Ahrens:  Blossom Festival at The Gorge White House: April 21 - 22nd  Check this old house out!  I want to go there.  I want to live there!  Nice Localism.

8.  Ralph & Janet Henze:  Weird Home Wednesday - The Safe House, Poland  This is sort of a weekly feature they do.  And I love it!

9.  Doug Rogers:  Before You Bash Your Client's Second Choice...  Doug makes a great point in this post.  Be kind to thier Plan B!

And 10.  Mike Elwell:  Having a Give, Grow, Gratitude Attitude!  Mike is a new to AR, and his posts are chock full of great advice on how to prosper in this sometimes goofy profession.

And that's all for this week.  Here's wishing everyone a great week.  See you here next Sunday, and blog on!

Patricia- Thanks for awarding Tristan with his first feature on ActiveRain!!!! How about that! It is fun to watch our kids grow up on AR! I started blogging here when he was 5 yrs old. I should re-post the first video we did where he was talking about being our assistant:) Katerina
