I'm thankful for neighbors. We have a few neighbors that we like and want to spend more time with. We spent time with some of them tonight. Actually, we crashed their let's-try-to-be-productive-before-the-sun-goes-away evening with some cupcakes and mint juleps. BestestHusband got up on a ladder and helped the productivity. I just handed out cupcakes and mint juleps and tried to keep the kids out of the way of the power tools and the ladders. We totally disrupted their bedtime routine. And ours. But the kids were having a blast. And the mint juleps were good. And it's such a joy to find other adults that you just want to spend more time with. That live a short walk away. We have wonderful family. None of them are in walking distance. We have wonderful friends. None of them are really in walking distance. But we do have a few wonderful neighbors. Neighbors that we can drop in on and destroy their evening. Neighbors that feel comfortable asking us to climb up on ladders and screw giant boards onto the side of their garage. And I'm thankful for that.
