U is for

is for
Utinam
(earnest wish or desire)

It is my Utinam you have enjoyed my A-Z Urbanology of Nashville.  Whew!  I was Unsure I could pull off the 'U'!

The end of this Challenge is in sight.  Only five more nights of being chased by letters in my dreams.  It has been fun, it has been hard and it has been a Challenge.  My Usual blogging schedule prior to the Challenge was weekly and at times I found that Challenging. 

I am very grateful to LS (Little Sister) and family for making my time in Nashville so enjoyable and Unforgettable.  Blowing kisses and sending hugs!!!

Thank you to all my followers, Old and New!  Your comments have been most appreciated. To the people I follow, who did not participate in the A-Z Challenge, my apologies if I have been remiss of late.  Please don't judge me Ungrateful.  The scale of this Challenge was Unexpected.

A big Thank You to my friend Theresa of Substitute Teacher’s Saga  who when I was at my wits end on 'N' came through for me, suggesting Nashville. Why didn't I think of that!  Thank you Theresa. 

I hope you have found my Nashville musings Utile. 

Onward and Upward.....Tomorrow is 'V' Day and I do have something to say!

A few weeks after I signed up for the challenge, I found out we were going to be moving this month. It wasn't exactly involuntary, but it was necessary. I almost quit (skipped out on N and O). Then I figured NO was not an option.

I've enjoyed your trip to Nashville, and now I'm resolved to do more there than just drive through on our next trip back home.

Thanks for hanging in there and being supportive!

It seems like writing is your thing and it does come without effort to you. Pardon me if I am wrong. Once I catch up with life, I would like to go back and read every one's older posts as well. I am sure there are plenty here that can soothe the thirst for reading creative work.

I keep reading "utinam" as "utanium"! I have no idea why!! Maybe cos I need new glasses! Or I'm very stupid! LOL!!! Oh well!! Yay for amazing Nashville, wonderful LS and gorgeous Theresa Milstein!!!

Ooooh I'm getting all excited about your V post now!!! Take care

Definitely enjoyable, I'm playing catch up with myself and my own additional challenge of writing two blogs for this challenge...seeing the light at the end of the tunnel! Looking forward to reading the rest of your posts:D

Your Nashville series was all of the above. Actually made me want to go there.

The scale of the Challenge was unexpected. You can say that again! But I am enjoying it really, especially reading blogs like yours.

I wasn't sure what to expect from the A to Z Challenge, but I must say, my vocabulary has grown exponentially over the past month. Great 'U' words, Ann! And I loved the Nashville series. Now that I live less than five hours away, maybe I'll have the opportunity to visit.

Rachael Harrie said...

Great U words :) Glad you didn't give up on the Challenge (and that you had a lovely time in Nashville).

Hugs,

Rach

What a neat new word. I don't think I'll remember it when I need to use it, but I bet I'll remember it when someone else uses it - thanks to you. :)

Reading your adventures in Nashville has been a pleasure. I can't tell you how many times I've driven through Nashville on my way to Florida and I never once stopped. Now, you make me wish I had. Thank you. It's been fun.

I too have been being chased by letters in my dreams! :)

Good use of U as always. I cannot make everyone and I realized I would never be able to. Some never came by my blog, but I'm glad you did.

Clever post! I will have to look up a couple of those U words :)

Sharon K. Mayhew said...

Great U words, Ann. This was the first time I did the a-z challenge. It was quite challenging keeping up with posting every day. I didn't get to visit as many new blogs as I had hoped for...oh well, I guess I have a couple days left. :)

Rachel Morgan said...

Thanks for teaching me a new word :-)

Theresa Milstein said...

Awww, thanks. No problem. U know U can coUnt on me! U have met the A to Z challenge in a Unique way!

Plain Jane said...

I know what you mean. Before this A to Z thing I barely posted. I must say it has been fun, though.
