How to Meet your Neighbors

When Mr. Adventure and I were married, I was really curious about our neighbors. Since he had lived in his house for four years, I thought he would know them. What are our neighbors like? Are they married? Do you know them? I asked, as I glowed with newlywed amore.

Strangely he didn't know any of them. Men must not be filled with overwhelming urges to bake muffins and ring people's doorbells. Sigh.
But, I still wanted to meet the neighbors! So I came up with an amazing idea. I'll make muffins and attach a cute hello post card and tie the whole thing to their doorknob!

I ordered these from Moo. I love them. I can't wait to give them to our neighbors!!!

This is what the back says:
Hello Neighbor! My name is Carolynn, and I just married the most wonderful man last November! I live near YOU now, at my address, where I can be close to my new husband and, of course, renovate his house from bachelordom! As I've lived here, I've seen a few of you out and about, with your spouse or with your childern. I just wanted to say: I would love to meet you and your families! The Mr. and I plan on living here for as long as the good Lord will allow (hopefully all our lives) and we would love to get to know YOU and  help YOU out in times of need and to laugh with you in times of joy. Have a blessed day.
A little about us:   
Her: Love to knit, sew, read, write and do photography. I run my own etsy and blogging business.
Him: Loves to program, watch anime, hike, build things, and eat bacon.
I am really excited about meeting and encouraging my neighbors! When I was passing out the cards I prayed for each family. I also put my e-mail and phone number on the cards. Have you ever met your neighbors? On an unrelated note, if your neighbor stuck a post card and a muffin on your door, would you think it was odd?
