...now let's have a BBQ.
Q: How can you tell when you live in a friendly neighborhood?
A: The day after you move in, you're invited to the ninth annual neighborhood BBQ!!
And that's how we ended up at a BBQ this past Saturday night - with 50 of our nearest neighbors, of whom we knew not a soul. But everyone was so kind and genuine that we quickly met so many nice neighbors and (hopefully!) new friends. Even though the heat was oppressive and there was smoke in the air from the local fires, we had such a wonderful time chatting away with everyone that the pros definitely out weighed the cons.
Kevin and I can't believe our good fortune to have found a cozy, charming home in a neighborhood as wonderful as ours is. Thanks, Kim, for the invitation. Here's to many more future neighborhood get-togethers!
