We have always lived in good neighborhoods. I have found that if you want to live in a good neighborhood, you need to get out and know the people on your street and in your community. We currently live in a great neighborhood. This weekend our neighborhood shut down one of the residential streets for a Chalk the Block celebration. Children and adults took to the street. They decorated the block with children's names, animals, palm trees, butterflies, fairies and doodles. The adults took breaks from drawing to chat and mingle. Different neighbors donated food and beverages to complete the event. The weather was perfect and many lingered to talk a bit more with new faces and those they have known a long time.
