When our family lived in our townhome, I had the most awesome neighbor and friend. She lived a few houses down and was so. much. fun.
She was the kind of neighbor that I could knock on the door at 10 PM (cause she was a night owl) and we’d chat and eat chips and dip for an hour.
We shared real life together, complete with messes, houses full of kids and laundry, and everything that life brought.
I treasured our chats and her assurance that I was going to make it through this motherhood “thing” because I was a new mom and her youngest (of 5) was the age of my oldest, so she had a ton of wisdom and experience!
Then I moved to another area, the Village of Kings Contrivance in Columbia, MD, and our lives pulled us apart. While we did have our IKEA trip and other random hang out times at soccer games, we didn’t see each other as much because we were both busy with our own kiddos and their worlds.
Fast forward to August of 2013…
The EXACT month we left Kings Contrivance and moved to Raleigh….she moved from the old townhouse neighborhood to the Village of Kings Contrivance.
Are you kidding?
And while we wouldn’t have been on the same street, the irony of the move didn’t pass us by. What horrid timing.
But on my last trip to MD, I was able to visit and check out her new location near my former location!
Oh, Layla, if only we were neighbors again! Are you sure you don’t want to join us in Raleigh?
