Anyways I was scouring Pinterest and the Internet looking for cute ways to introduce our family to our new neighbors. There are 5 other homes on our floor (even though I think 2 are empty but I'm going to make 5 anyway) so I didn't want to do something super elaborate or time consuming. Since we will be here 3 years I figured what better way to introduce The Cunningham family than to give a little gift letting our new neighbors know who we are and that we are here. Plus it may help soften their hearts and help them remember not to complain when they hear the more frequently occurring that I would like crazy toddler tantrum from way outside of our home since we are right in front of the elevator. Way better than forcing them to meet us by knocking on your door during your dinner, on your weekend relax time or while you're bringing groceries in. Gives them a choice of whether or not they want to stop by and meet us and gets rid of that awkward "hi I'm your new neighbor! Please like me and not judge me if I look too crazy rushing out late to an appointment" moment
Here are some cute ideas that I found:
I found this one on pinterest with no link (so I linked to the pinterest page) It is so simple, to the point and plays on the common "come over if you need a cup of sugar" neighbor thing. This is actually my favorite and a strong contender. I would put in on a small card though instead of a regular sheet of paper.
