Welcome to the 'Sac
Our new house is on a short street of 11 houses with a cul-de-sac at the end. And while I was at the house a nice neighbor from across the street walked over and said, "Hi, welcome to the 'sac!" We met and chatted for a bit. She informed me that the neighbors get together for front lawn happy hours when the weather is nice. She also commented on how our workers were at the house working on Easter Sunday (we're building a reputation as ball busters, and we haven't even moved in). I told her we're moving in on Monday. She said (in amazement) that she heard we were hosting a couples' shower the first Saturday we're in the house. I had to tell her it was true (apparently the neighbors talk at the happy hours because she was well informed on our backstory). Yes, we move in on Monday and we have 45 people coming to the house on Saturday. We agreed to the event before we knew we were moving houses.
I like friendly neighbors. We didn't know our new house comes with new best friends. This house is going to be a great place to raise a family.
