‘It is what it is’.
.
Trying desperately to remove this phrase from my vocabulary 😤 I have good reason to dislike it, it seems to be lurking around in Real Estate a lot these days (more on power tripping realtors later 🤣) I’m going to work on a guide for buyers+sellers about unexpected frustrations or maybe things to ask an agent before you hire them... still working on it 🤔 if you have any ideas; ‘I’m all ears’!
.
So, I thought ‘misery loves company’ and turned to my stories to ask you what some of YOUR least favorite phrases are ➡️ the answers came pouring in (check my stories). Here are some of my favorites so far...
.
1. Everything happens for a reason
2. It would behoove you
3. No offense but..
4. To piggyback on what she said
5. It’s fine (when it really isn’t)
.
.
.
And here is a photo of my favorite recent tile and shoes for positivity to balance this post out 😘

What do you treasure most about your home community? What do you want in where you call ‘home’?
.
In ONE of my dream worlds I live right here in a big old 1880 colonial on the corner of Maryland Ave and King George. I wouldn’t mind the street noise, I’d love the constant walkers outside of my wrought iron gate. I’d take time to garden and make the front entryway of my house a celebration. I’d stroll a LOT, I’d have a cat, I’d be a regular at the boutiques around town (they’d hold things for me knowing my exquisite taste). Of course sensible shoes With arch support and a bookcase filled will half-read books would be part of my routine as well.
.
All of this to say, I treasure the lifestyle a community brings. This is only one of the many places I’d be happy.

Full Quarter 2️⃣ Housing Market Round-Up is available on the blog 👆link in bio.
.
The overarching theme of this quarter in my business perfectly matches this @suandlou t-shirt: Bmore Kind, to yourself, the people you are with and even the strangers around you who might be operating out of fear or stress. Small acts of kindness and understanding go a long way in this world.
.
The report is easy to digest and I break down the following counties: Anne Arundel, Baltimore City, Baltimore County, Howard, Montgomery & Price George’s 🗺 If you have a specific area you want to know more about send me a DM and I will happily help 🤗
.
Also, round of applause for @suandlou crushing it with the shirts, they donated the money to @thelovelandfoundation ❤️ we’ve got a lot of heart in the local community here, be proud to call Maryland Home!

I come back to this quote again and again ♥️ With restrictions lifting I hear the sentiment, ‘be mindful of what you’re returning to’ and it rings true for me both personally and professionally.
.
Taking this time to choose a better plate and certainly not rushing back to a lot that robbed my time. My business hasn’t felt ‘busy’ it’s begun to feel ‘full’ 👉🏻 a noteworthy difference.

☀️ instead of complaining about the heat (we all know how it feels outside rn 🥵) lets do something positive! Share what you’re doing locally in Maryland this Summer 🍓 🍉 🌄 With the restrictions still in effect, we’ve got to be a little creative + purposeful with what we choose to do.
.
So... what’s the plan, Stan (be it big, small, simple or slightly impossible)? ↪️ I’ll put mine in the comments {tagging a business gets you extra good juju ✨}

Baby girl’s first pop-up shop got her like 💃🏻 we have so much inspiration within this community. @hereapopupshop is one of those magical places that makes you do a happy dance and wander within the walls for hours.
.
For an Annapolis 🏡 settlement, I wanted to I curate a local gift basket for a closing gift ➡️ HERE had to be my first stop 💚 (My daughter was patient with me and only asked for 1256 items.)
.
Also, while we are at it, let’s go ahead and give @hereapopupshop a community round of applause 👏🏻 this was the last day of her 32nd pop-up (yup, she’s moved her physical business that many times) and did so during a pandemic. She pivoted and showed her creativity by keeping the shop accessible when it was physically the least accessible.
.
p.s. (p.s.) if any shop owner can rock a mask, it’s El. Got the best smize in the game girl😷

Hey Siri...describe 2020 in one word...
.
’Intense’ boss lady...2020 is intense.
.

💥
1. yes, since 2015 Siri has referred to me as boss lady, I did this in the hopes that my children would catch on... still working on it.
💥
2. This year has been INTENSE. The lows are exhaustingly low and the highs are pure cotton candy and sunshine. The transition from one to the next is so abrupt, so outta control who the hell knows what’s next.
💥⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We are halfway through 2020. We are doing it friends! Checking in on goals, timelines, feelings, how are you doing at the halfway point?
☀️
Describe your first half of the year vs what you want to cultivate for the second half.

👆 Click the link in BIO to read more ♥️ I want to share with you just a small sliver of what makes Baltimore a great place to call home. A social enterprise, an organization I am elated to support: Hon's Honey. .
.

My husband purchased the Mother's Day box from my gift guide. A gift is always special, but it is a different feeling to know the gift is inherently good. Bonus points: this is a gift that I can share with my honey-loving kiddos 🍯 Double Bonus: cameo appearance by @mangoandmain and @wightteaco .

👋 hey friends, there are a handful of new faces hanging out around here and I’m v excited!!! So...said my my best Jay-Z voice *ahem* Allow me to reintroduce myself, my name is... NINA☀️ .
.
The Local Wander is my creative outlet. It is the way that I can make something, find joy and experience wanderlust in the present, right where I am (physically, spiritually, emotionally and professionally). Writing has always been a cathartic experience for me, so the blog and the long-form captions push me to make the connections between what I’m experiencing and the big picture of ‘life’.
.

Hmm That’s a mouthful, let me try again.... I blog about my travels around the great state of Maryland and share the joys with you (mainly coffee, food and baller interior design). I wander so much because I am Realtor who loves house hunting, it’s a great excuse to explore LOCAL 🗺 .
.
🚨Now like any good blogger I have a call to action for YOU 😁- what do you want to see more of in this space? Better yet, what is your favorite thing to follow along with? .
