It's been nearly two weeks since we've moved into our new home and we're slowly making a dent in all the unpacking. To say I love this home is an understatement. What makes it even more special is the neighborhood. It is always the unknown when buying a new home and you just pray you have nice neighbors. It's one of those intangibles you can never put a price tag on. And, we've seem to hit the jackpot. Our neighbors have been incredible, bringing over cupcakes, bringing flowers, inviting us to a dinner/birthday parties, helping Luke on his first day of kindergarden and just stopping by to say 'Hi' or lend a helping hand. It sure has made the whole unpleasant experience of moving so much more enjoyable!
One of the reasons we bought this home was for the outdoor spaces and, in particular, the backyard. We have a small patio right outside our side door leading off of the kitchen. Tonight we finally had the chance to have dinner outside on our patio. We got to use the teak patio set we bought four years ago in Portland, ME (and never had a chance to use because we didn't have a patio at our old home). I finally set it up tonight and it looked great with the wisteria vine lit up in the background! And, how about that cute little flower box outside the kitchen window? I can't wait to plant geraniums in the spring!
