Neighbors are a blessing

"A bad neighbor is a misfortune, as much as a good one is a great blessing" Heslod quotes

I have been blessed with the greatest neighbors!

I live in the best neighborhood ever with the best neighbors anyone could ever ask for. I'm not talking about the friendly neighborhood where everyone waves to each other. I'm talking about true friendships. The kind of people that will be there for you in a heart beat whatever the circumstance. The kind where I look forward to hanging out with them, with each and every one of them. We have what used to be Friday night happy hours, but now we'll be out any night of the week just to celebrate good weather. I came from a neighborhood like this growing up. The other families became my second and third family. We all played and even vacationed together. So many of my favorite memories came from my old street. I smell barbecues today and I am immediately brought back to my childhood. I am so happy my kids get to grow up in the same type of environment.

This year for Easter we had a block party up at our park with an Easter egg hunt. The kids had a blast!!!

Gavin (big brother on the street) was playing catch with Petey and Wyatt

Little Chrystal started early on the Easter egg hunt...

I hope everyone enjoys their Easter!!

I love...

I love sunrises

and I love sunsets
I love my husband
and I love my children
I love my dog

I love rainbows after a warm summer storm
I love running through the sprinklers

I love frolicking in the ocean waves (when the water is above 73)

and I love family vacations
I love my life!!!

I could do this forever. I have so much love in my life and so much to be grateful for. I challenge you to sit down and write a list of what you love. I guarantee you will feel wonderful!
