Our dear neighbors and friends, Danna and Sanjay and their kids, are moving back to Montana this week. After more than five years together, it is hard to know what to say or where to start, so we'll start at beginning (but keep it short!).
Back in 2004, Michael and I bought our first house in Warwick Village. As a long-time rental, it was the kind of house you had to see the "potential" in to buy. But, we were so proud of our little house that we couldn't wait to move in. Driving by one day before our closing date, we met our neighbor-to-be Danna. She saw us peeking in the windows of our soon-to-be house and let us walk around hers so we could envision where our furniture might go. She also gave us the scoop on the other neighbors, who would come to be our "urban family" over the next five years.
We spent the next two years fixing up 34 Kennedy Street. When we weren't at Home Depot, we were hanging out with our new neighbors and friends on the front porch (also a DIY project). For years now, many a summer evening after work has been spent drinking wine and eating cheese in good company on our porch. And while it is hard to remember now, before Jack and Sonja joined us on Kennedy Street, there was Zane and Erica.
Over the years, its has been so special to watch our kids grow alongside each other here on Kennedy Street. From pool parties to birthday parties to just hanging out, there was always an impromptu playdate right out our front door.
