A Love Letter to Downtown Frederick

A first blog post is a rather intimidating task. I’ve been plagued with writer’s block and seem to have had a running commentary in the back of my head for a week plus now (the commentary ran something like this – what am I going to write about? What am I going to write about?) And then I hit upon it – a love letter to Downtown Frederick. Here goes…

I love you Downtown Frederick, how do I count the ways…

the beginning of what I am sure will be an ever expanding list

I love Downtown Frederick:

In the am as I walk to work when everyone says hello but we all know it’s too early for a long conversation.

As the day turns to noon and the streets fill with people seeking a bite for lunch.

Because I can knock four items off my to do list by bumping into people as I walk to get a sandwich for lunch.

On a sunny afternoon in the late summer when it seems all the world is playing hooky and wandering past my office window.

On days when I need to multi-task and pick up a great gift as I walk home from work.

For the architecture and the great shopping and the tasty eats but most of all for the wonderful people.

I love Downtown Frederick.
