Right before we moved into our home a little over a year ago, we had no idea the type of neighborhood that we were moving into. We hadn’t heard anything about it nor did we know anyone. But when we found it, what stood out to me (besides loving the actual house), was that the streets were lined with budding pear trees and people were out everywhere. Dogs were walked, laughing children were flying down the sidewalks on their bikes, and neighbors were out talking over yard work.
It seemed too good to be true, and sure, it had it’s flaws as any place would. After all, it’s filled with real people and real stories and real heartache and problems. But I don’t mind flying the flag that we hit the jackpot with amazing neighbors. The real, salt of the earth, genuine, lets you borrow dog food when you’re out kind of people.
If you haven’t caught on to where I’m going with this, the Augspurger family just so happens to be one of those neighbors. They were the ones who ran down dog food for our dog, Lily Cherry Pie, when we were all out. They dropped off an air conditioner unit and invited us to stay in their home when our air was out for three of the hottest weeks of this summer. They let us borrow beach chairs for our summer vacation (which I totally need to return before we become one of those neighbors!). Basically, I think this family is pretty amazing and that everyone deserves to have neighbors like these!
We met up on a super overcast, muggy summer day for these photos and had such a fun time! Enjoy!!
