A funny good neighbor policy

A funny good neighbor policy

My friends and family know all about my neighbor woes in France. In case you’re new here, my neighbors pretty much keep to themselves. In fact, the people right next door moved without evening mentioning it. We found out when the movers asked us to move our car at 7 a.m. so the truck would have space to load up in front of our house. I’ve also mentioned that when we moved into our house 3 years ago, I went next door to a family with kids to introduce myself and brought some homemade cupcakes for them. The mother looked horrified as if I had a plate of bloody cow brains. We’ve never said more than a bonjour to each other since. So long story short, I haven’t had much luck in getting to know my neighbors. I’m not looking to be best friends with everyone in a 2-mile radius, but I think there’s value in knowing people’s names and being friendly.

OK, now that you know the neighbor situation, you’ll understand why I found this “good neighbor” policy so funny. You see, a family member was searching for an apartment to rent in South Florida and came across a very interesting link on one property management’s website. Not only would something worded like that never work in France, but it even left me scratching my head!

Let’s read it together!

Hello! Greetings from sunny Key West! As I mentioned in my last post, I’m on vacation in South Florida until just after Labor Day, so things in blogland will be a little slow until I return. Key West rooster So what’s been going on? We’re enjoying our visit with my brother and parents. Hanging out by his pool, enjoying American staples like Dunkin’ Donuts and frozen yogurt and just taking in all that Florida has to offer. Dagny is making herself right at home at my in-laws’ back in France.

Here’s what’s coming up:

  • A giveaway is coming soon from the fine folks at Printstagram! You can make all kinds of cool books and prints from your fave Instagram shots.
  • The second installment of Ask Tom Tuesdays is coming up next week!

Stay tuned for vacation pics after the trip. See ya when I get back. Vive les vacances!

South Florida: Love it or hate it?

Written by Diane. Posted in on everything else

south beach miami South Florida is a polarizing place. You either love it or hate it – there are no in betweens. If you asked me five years ago if South Florida was a place I liked, I’d have told you absolutely not. The humidity, the scene, the big highways. But that has changed, and I’ll be Miami bound this weekend!

Read on to see what’s changed!
