Can we all just agree times are weird right now? Covid-19 and social distancing has done nothing short of uproot our normal routines and added a few extra layers of stress an anxiety to our lives.
So with this newsletter, I'm hoping to provide a layer of transparency as well as focus on some of the good things and people in our neighborhood. We moved here to be part of a community; one that laughs together, grows together and helps each other when times get rough. While I'm sure we can agree the current time fits firmly into the "rough" camp, I do think we are more than ever wanting to find the silver lining to all of this. Hoping this and the subsequent newsletters can help.
GET TO KNOW THE CARMICHAELS
If you haven't had a chance to meet the Carmichael's yet you are seriously missing out. After moving into the neighborhood in 2013, Andy (old), Brittany (20 something), Tyler (11), Max (9), Bailey (14 dog years) have firmly established themselves as the "fun family" everyone wants to be around. Tyler and Max spend their days focused on all things soccer, video games, basketball, and playing with neighborhood friends, while Andy and Brittany focus on
hosting must-attend events like their charity "90's kegger" fundraiser for Sunset Elementary where they donned 90's chains and swag while serving up taco bell and McD's big macs. You can bank on the fact if a Carmichael is involved it's going to be a good time.
When asked about what their advice would be to new families in the 'hood they said, "Over the years you'll meet more and more people as kids and people grow together. Everyone looks out for each other and nobody should be afraid to reach out to connect. The key is to just make everyone feel welcomed and actually spend time getting to know one another." If you haven't met them yet, trust me when I say you should put it on your 2020 bucket list!
