Meeting the neighbors

One of our new neighbors came by today to introduce themselves and brought a loaf of freshly baked bread. It was still warm!

When we moved into the house in DE no one introduced themselves, much less brought bread and there were almost 1000 houses in our subdivision.

We've now met everyone on the street, they are all so nice. Everyone of them has offered us use of their truck or tractor and told us to call when we need to build something and they would come and help. This is so new to us, we aren't sure what to make of it. But we like it!

I have lived in Tennessee my whole life. I have traveled to all 50 states and most of Europe but I have yet to find any nicer or welcoming set of people than those here in the south. Welcome and I hope you enjoy this wonderful area.

Welcome to the South! I grew up in Missouri, and folks were friendly there. When we moved to Texas, and "friendly" didn't even scratch the surface.
I'm thrilled it's working out so lovely for you and your family.

Thats a great thing. Welcoming neighbors always makes the process so much easier. Especially when they bring warm bread!

At the risk of repeating others...welcome to southern hospitality. Nothing quite like it.

Hey, you have to change the name of your blog ... maybe to "Dream Farm" or "Farm Reality" :)

I'm so thrilled for you that you've found such an amazing place, and your neighbors sound really wonderful. Good neighbors really do make a world of difference. Whenever we get new neighbors, I'm always sure to take something to them to welcome them to the neighborhood.

Welcome to Georgia. We are a friendly bunch for the most part but also remember to return the favor. Remember the Golden Rule.
And I like your chickens,too.
