Meeting the Neighbors (31 Days of Nest Building: day 20)
In this series, I’ve talked about settling into this new-to-us house and exploring the town. Today I want to talk about the people, specifically my neighbors.
It’s quite possible that I have the best neighbors.
I first introduced myself to the woman next door the day of our home inspection. She was doing some yard work, so I popped over to say hi. She seemed very nice. We traded phone numbers that day.
A few days after moving in, she dropped by on her way home from work with a bottle of wine to welcome me to the neighborhood. That’s when I knew I was lucky to have her for a neighbor.
A few days after that, a neighbor from down the street dropped by to introduce herself. She brought homemade chocolate cookies and a card. The cookies were still warm from the oven. *swoon*
The family across the street are lovely women who all work at my son’s school and greet me with smiles and big “hi, neighbor” waves whether at home or at school.
Then there was that drive-by Halloween party invitation I received the other day from a neighbor further down the street.
As if I hadn’t already fallen in love with this town, the people in it have been so kind.
Throughout October, I will be continuing this story of getting acquainted with my home and making it my own as part of the 31 days challenge. Catch up on any posts you may have missed here: 31 Days of Nest Building.
