So turns out we have a new neighbor! The tiny little white house to our left just sold. I have to say I´m part delighted and part terrified. I always say that in this village, we basically live in historic row houses... and while our lots certainly are more than spacious, it still is important to get along with each other. So far, we really lucked out - let´s hope it stays that way. The new owner is a young woman who seems to be really nice, and apparently she owns several ponies! How nice will it be to have ponies looking over the (not yet existing) fence! The sad thing is that we now really have to fence in our property... I kind of liked the feeling of undisturbed space like in the picture above (I am standing on our meadow but most of what you see here is our neighbor´s land).
Anyway, speaking of neighbors, we´ll have a big summer party on Saturday for everyone who helped us build our back porch (which is more or less the entire village). Fingers crossed for good weather.
I also plan to cuddle my little Emma girl a lot over the weekend. She is still sick and it breaks my heart.
Happy weekend! Enjoy the summer while it lasts.
PS: As you might have noticed, I gave the blog a small facelift. It was about time after two years!
