The Joy of Neighbors

Back in early August, our community got together for food and talk at a ‘Community Night Out’ event. The idea is that you get to know your neighbors, and are therefore more aware of what is going on and what is out of place. It was a lot of fun. We ended up walking home with two other couple.

Birthday Reflections, 2011
