Well, even though Mr. Nagel is away, we are settling into our new home day by day. The community here is so welcoming and kind. I have already met a lot of new people and the boys have made several new friends. One of our next door neighbors is also a young military family and they have two young boys as well. Little did we know we would have built in playmates upon arrival!
One of their boys had a birthday party at the pool on Saturday and it was an adorable celebration. I have to give props to my neighbor, Katie, since she is due to have her third child 2 weeks from now. Her pirate and treasure themed bash was simple yet very special with a couple of very unique touches: a combination that we love here at Sustainable Halo. The kids got to battle over gold coins and don bead necklaces as they splashed away the afternoon heat. One thing in particular that she did was special order pirate cupcake toppers from Etsy and had them customized. I do not know how she did all of this in her final days of pregnancy. It was simply amazing! Check out the seller, they are VERY cute. Etsy can be a bit of an obsession, but its worthy,especially because you know you are supporting the handmade community.
I am grateful for my new friends and community as a whole.
Love and light,
