Throwback Thursday: Neighbors




“Let us be grateful to the people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.” -Marcel Proust 

I come from a long line of porch sitters.  The people who I have spent the most time on the porch with have been my neighbors.  I often think of my neighbors like family.  You really don’t get to choose them, but they are around for many of your happiest and saddest moments.  I have lucked out on having wonderful neighbors at every house we have lived in.  So, in honor of our newest neighbors who moved in today, here are some favorite TBT pics.
