Meet the Neighbors...

We decided to do something a little out of our comfort zone...
We held a Coffee & Dessert Night in our Driveway
so that we could finally meet our neighbors.
We met a few already in the past six months...
but we had MANY more to introduce ourselves to...
This is Dave and Simon looking a little unsure about
what was in store for us that evening....
Was it going to only two that showed up???
Was it going to to be 5???

With this display of goodies and yummies,
we were in hopes for a few more!




An empty plate of Lemon Cake and Monkey Bread
should tell you that it went GREAT!

A whopping 25 neighbors showed up!
The BEST part of the evening was not only did WE get to meet some new friends,
but neighbors who had lived there for 7-8 years
were meeting other neighbors who had been there for 13 years!

The evening was beyond what we had hoped for...
being out of our comfort zone,
ended up to be EXACTLY what we needed...
and apparently what our neighborhood needed!

I reccommend this to anyone who wants to meet new neighbors...
SERVE them food....
and they will come!

Oh my goodness, Jean! That is FANTASTIC!! What a fabulous idea - I'm so proud of you for "stepping out of your comfort zone". You are right, we all need to do that more often and reach out to our neighbors. Nice job and everything looks SO wonderful! Hugs to you all, Jo xoxoxo
