Since Mike and I married we have been blessed with fabulous neighbors. When we lived in Abilene we had a sweet family from Brazil that lived near us in some apartments. They had two precious girls and we really enjoyed getting to know them. That neighbor shared with us a thought from Brazil that we have 100% agreed with. I don't know if I remember it exactly but it was something like, "Anyone can have a good house, but a house is nothing without good neighbors."
We have always enjoyed our homes but they are so much better because we have wonderful neighbors. We have known this family since we moved to Paducah. We have a great neighborhood with friendly people! They live a few houses down and we have spent several evenings together as well as helped each other work in yards, weather the ice storm, and watch out for each other's houses when someone is out of town. It was a pleasure to get the opportunity to photograph their 3 year old. I remember the week she was born and meeting her for the first time.
She was super excited about having her picture made and kept saying "I'm not done getting my pictures made yet!" Another time I had her sitting and she said "Sara, you want me to stand up right here?" She was just trying to help me pose her next! I loved it and could have kept going long after we had to call it a night.
Even if we aren't always neighbor's we will always consider them friends!
