365 Days in Aspen

As Aspen as Apple Pie

Last night my next-door neighbor (who I barely know) knocked on my door, carrying a piece of apple pie with a side scoop of ice cream. 

Such a simple thing, yet it spoke volumes. I've lived a lot of places – including several locations in Atlanta, New York City, Nashville, Chattanooga, Dallas, Lexington and more, but I've never once in my life had a neighbor bring me a treat "just because." 

I don't know if it is just that my neighbor is nice and thoughtful, if it's because I'm now in a small town, if that town is Aspen, or if there's something different about "me," but whatever it is, I love it and want to honor the thought in today's blog. Thanks, Neighbor!
