When we purchased our first home we honestly weren’t too sure what to expect. What sort of neighbors would we find? Will we fit in? Or will everyone just keep to themselves and ignore us?
Well my friends, I’m happy to report that we got so lucky! Our little block is the best around (like lawn parties and bonfires kinda best) and within a few years of living here we’d created lifelong bonds with several of our neighbors. One of our favorite friendships turned out to be Kristina and Jason. We all shared a love of gardening, good wine, home projects on our old homes, and 80’s music (though that was more Beau and Jason tbh). So when Kristina and Jason had the opportunity to settle in their forever home nearby we were heartbroken to see them go….even though it’s only a 10 minute drive, tops, there’s just something so wonderful about crossing your yard for a quick chat with friends.
Thankfully we haven’t lost touch too much and Beau and I were so honored when they asked us for anniversary pictures to celebrate their 20th anniversary. The entire evening was such a treat as we explored their property and ended, of course, with a beautiful charcuterie and wine overlooking Chattanooga. We’re so excited to see what the next 20 years holds for them and love their heart for restoration, community, and native gardening. Cheers you guys and all our love!
