It's truly been a unique experience owning our very first home in a completely new neighborhood. Over the past 2 years and counting I have seen it grow and change rapidly right before my eyes. One of the things that my HOA (Home Owners Association) has been trying to accomplish is to build a stronger community. Sure, living in GA people are polite and say hi, good morning etc. They'll even wave at you as you drive your car into the neighborhood. Good luck finding that in the northeast lol. However, only a few of us in the neighborhood have gotten to know one another. We usually meet for the dreadful HOA meetings once in awhile; where we are there to argue for or against changes and establish rules. So when it was announced that the subdivision would throw a Halloween block party, I knew it would be a great opportunity for all of us here to finally meet up and get to know one another and just enjoy each other's company. It was a complete success and it can only get better from here on out. I decided to lend my photography to capture a few photos of the event. I am really looking forward to future events like these to get to know my neighbors better and build a strong community.
