Dear new neighbor:

Thank you for coming over to chat when you saw me in the backyard on Sunday. Thank you for pointing out the poison ivy in the lot behind mine. Thank you for showing me your flowers, and telling me about the plans for your upcoming 50th wedding anniversary*, and chatting about your kids.

Thank you for helping me feel at home in my new neighborhood.

*They're going to Hawaii. I am SO JEALOUS.

I just love that! I'm glad you have at least one nice neighbor. The day I moved in to my last house, my neighbor came over and offered his help. I never forgot that, and over the three years we were there, he was always lending us a hand. Nice neighbors are the best.
