Home

This apartment is home. 

Really, truly. 

One of these days, I'll actually take pictures of the apartment to share. 

But it's little moments like the one that I just witnessed out my windows that really help cement the sense of "this neighborhood is a community."

I just glanced out the window and saw a Dad and a little boy with a bike across the street. Dad stopped and turned the boy's training wheels up. 

In just a few moments, the boy mastered riding the bike without his training wheels. 

As he rode in circles around the neighbor's driveway, his dad stopped him on his bike, leaned down, and gave him a big hug and a kiss. 

The boy rode a few more circles, and they took off down the block. 

Just a moment. 

Just a human moment. 

Just a reminder, this is home.
