Jamie & I have lived in our house for a little over 8 years, but we really don’t know any of our neighbors. We know the people right next to us and a few other names, but that’s about it.
Last Summer I met a couple a few houses away and they have a son a few months older than Jake. The couple were very nice and I bumped into them a couple times over the year, except Jamie has never been around when these meeting occur. Jamie says they are my invisible friends.
Today, while taking Jake for a walk, I bumped into them outside their home. Jamie was back at the house and so he missed them again! This time we exchanged phone numbers.
When I got back to the house I showed Jamie their numbers and he just laughed and said that I made them up so it looks more legit. I will just have to invite them over for dinner some night so they can meet each other.
In the meantime I should really make an effort to meet more of the neighbors.
