Meeting the Neighbors

When Steve and I moved into our apartment complex, we received a list of all our neighbors (there are eight apartments in our building). We have it posted on our fridge, but it doesn't do us much good because we obviously don't have it with us when we pass people on the way in or out of the apartment. We met one lady when we first moved in, but none of the others have introduced themselves to us. So although they are friendly and say hello when we see them, we have no idea who they are.

So when a new couple moved into the apartment across from us, we decided to take the opportunity to be friendly and introduce ourselves. Last night we went over and took some of the chocolate chip cookies we made, and we met Lenore and Robert. They were very sweet, and we just stood around and made small talk for a few minutes. Pretty painless. The funny thing was when we were leaving, Lenore said, "I can't wait to tell the girls at work that my neighbors brought us cookies! I thought that only happened on TV! I didn't know people did that in real life!" :) That made me laugh.

amy-
chocolate chip cookies...mmmm...

when my neighbors and my family all moved in (ten years ago and all around the same time b/c it was a new subdivision) we all made cookies, too. it really is a great way to meet people. people want to get to know you when you bring them yummy food. good job!

i actually took some homemade chocolate chip cookies to the young adult bible study at church last night. (just to prove my domesticity... b/c let's face it: that's about as domestic as i get. haha.)
love ya!
