Giving Joy

Gift for a new neighbor

A little cottage went up for rent by us and I had my eyes on it for weeks. We can’t rent it of course since we already have a place of our own, but it’s adorable and has a killer back patio with a view of the ocean. On my lunch hour as I was cruising up our street, I saw the new resident out with her dog and stopped for a chat. Yes, I was my overly zestful self and asked her a million questions. Plus, I’m really excited to feel apart of a neighborhood, where here people wave and make genuine small talk.

One Sunday I made Joy the Baker‘s oatmeal raspberry scones from her new cookbook. We had extra so I wrapped up a few, added a note and some flower seeds and dropped it off to our new neighbors {they’re New Yorkers!}!

Have you ever put together something for a new neighbor? If so, what did you do?
