The 1 reason I would want to move: To get a large, sunny yard so I could have my own garden.
The 1 reason I won't: Our neighbors.
We KNOW our neighbors. We wave at each other, have afternoon chats, and swap keys when we leave for vacation. We borrow things, trade books, and share our garden harvest.
Which brings me to the above. That dish of black raspberries was left on our deck this morning. Our neighbor can't eat the seeds in her raspberries--yet she took the effort to pick them for us!
And do you see the note? She apologizes for not having time to wash them!
It's an amazing thing living in a real neighborhood. I hope you live in one too.
