Ode to my Neighbors

We are moving.

It's sad to think we're leaving this beautiful neighborhood where Cale and I first lived together, where we got Piglet, I started writing, Cale went to school, and where we met Amanda and Justin, our amazing neighbors.

I'm sure it's the Southern Hospitality thing, but as of yet, I have never met another person who every single time they say, "Hey, how are you, today?" I genuinely feel they want to know how I am. Every single time. I swear, I could sit down and spill my life and they both would sit with me and actually, honestly care.  It's a pretty incredible gift to have been given these two wonderful people as our neighbors for the past year.

Plus, Cale and I have both always known that if the house was burning down, one of them would break out a window and save the dogs ;)

Yes, this isn't actually an ode because isn't an ode a poem? I don't know. But I do know that I don't write poetry; I'm terrible at it.

Anyway, thanks for the past year, guys. We're going to miss you.


  1. Moving on is always bitter sweet. Best of luck with the move :)

  2. Good luck with the move, and I hope you find new awesome neighbors too!

  3. Having moved more times than I can count (one year, I moved house 10 times), I know what you're going through. But just remember, you'll find new friends amongst your new neighbors.

  4. Aww, that stinks to have made such great friends and then you have to move. One good thing is you can keep the friends and create new experiences. I love moving and hate it at the same time. Got to love those bitter sweet moments in life.

    Are you moving out of state?

  5. You guys are all so great! It is hard to be moving, but it's also exciting at the same time :)

    Deana- we're in limbo right now, staying with relatives. Cheap on the rent but stressful not knowing what's happening next. Hopefully I'll be able to post soon about where we're ending up!

  6. Yes do let us know. I am very aware of the stress of living with relatives. My family is living in my parents basement while we are trying to sell our house in Alabama so I know all about that. Good luck!

  7. Aww, we're state neighbors! Or at least your house is.

    Where are you guys now?

  8. Oh really? I love Alabama, but we are in Kentucky now. We miss it there.
