Today I am thankful for my neighbors. This morning I picked up my friend who lives down the street and we went to the food rescue together. And this afternoon/evening we joined our neighborhood for a block party. In our old neighborhood we barely knew anyone, and didn't really want to. But here, we have the nicest neighbors who have quickly become our good friends.
Soon after we moved last year, there was a block party. Tonight we had a second one. We now live in a neighborhood where people like each other, they look out for each other, their kids play with one another and grow up together. At the last block party, 2 of us were barely pregnant, now we both have babies. It was fun to talk about how our children will grow up together and probably be in the same class at school and play together at each others' houses.
I love our neighbors. I love that this neighborhood is quiet and safe. I love that I can talk to people and wave to people and visit people. I love that we live in a great school district and I am so thankful for people who love to help out!
Oh, and today I took Ezra to JC Penney and did some portraits (the Treguboffs are coming tomorrow to shoot both kids)...
