New neighbors and friends
Since moving to North Carolina, Joe and I have been fortunate enough to meet some wonderful people on our street. The old saying, "You can pick your friends but not your family" should be said for neighbors. You can pick your friends but not your neighbors. We've had some bad luck in the past, but our neighbors on Nelson Lane have more than made up for that!
