“Here’s the ‘SCOOP’: It is so ‘COOL’ to have you as our new neighbors! We hope you find living here to be just as ‘SWEET’ as we do! Welcome to the neighborhood!”
Remember being the new kid in class? Remember the awkwardness of feeling like all those other scruffy and gangly kids already knew each other and you were that odd kid out of the loop? Happens to adults too. Just ask your new neighbors. Yes, moving into a new neighborhood feels pretty much the same as being the new kid in class–a little scary, a little worrisome, and probably more than just a little intimidating.
Well, guess what? I’ve been the new kid on the block, and I know what it feels like. I also know that I was overwhelmed with gratitude for those neighbors who took the time and trouble to welcome us into our new neighborhood; it meant a ton to me and my family.
You can be that bright spot of sunshine in your new neighbors’ lives just as our now good friends were to us. As you take the time to welcome the new neighbors, use this darling, easy, and inexpensive welcome to the neighborhood gift idea and free printable to really spread that neighborhood luv!
