Loving My Neighbor-hood!

posted on: Friday, August 5, 2011

So, we are beginning to settle in our new home and I am in the process of "setting up house".  There's just something so exciting about moving into a new home and making it your own. And,  I have to tell you guys again that, I adore our new house and absolutely LOVE our new neighborhood!
Our house has so much potential and character!

The first night here, our dear friends and neighbors, Jason and Kate dropped by.  It was wonderful to see them pull up in our driveway and knowing that they lived so close by.  We enjoyed a cup of chai tea and spent a couple of hours visiting.  Kate and I were giggling about how wonderful it is going to be being neighbors.  Kate also has a lovely new blog that you guys can check out HERE.

Then the next day, I met my sweet new elderly neighbor, Miss Edna.  She was SO precious!  She is in her 70's and is just as sweet as she can be.  She wanted to introduce herself and brought me over some homegrown tomatoes, telling me to help myself to some whenever I wanted. :)

I still have TONS of unpacking to do and I am also deep in the throws of preparing for my friend's baby shower that we are having tomorrow.  Yesterday, I painted bottles and did all sorts of creative fun stuff to get ready for it.  I can't wait to take pics and share the funness of it all with you. It's been hectic, but awesome.

Well, better get back to my super long "to do" list.   You loves have the loveliest of days!
