For any of my long-time readers, I’ve talked about Driveway Happy Hour at least once a summer. It’s our neighborhood’s weekly Friday night family-friendly get together that includes tons of playtime for the kiddos, a little bit of wine for the parents and great conversation.
It rotates throughout the neighborhood each summer. It was our turn to host this past Friday night and we had such a fabulous night with our amazing neighbors. I focused on just a few things to make the night fun, festive, but also simple and enjoyable. I had Natalie create some lovely posters (as usual!) with fun phrases.
We served pizza, brownies, cookies, chips and dips, fruit pops and snacks plus Sequoia Grove Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon for the adults.
And while you certainly don’t need to be best friends with all of your neighbors, I highly recommend nurturing relationships with neighbors if you have it in you. It creates the most amazing energy ever for raising kiddos. I’m so grateful for all of the people (adults and littles) who surround our home. We have some of the best and I love getting to know everyone better.
It really does take a village, right? Consider starting up a happy hour in your neighborhood. Calling it “Driveway Happy Hour” makes it even more casual and you can ask everyone to bring their own drinks to keep it simple. You never know what friendships and relationships will form.
