LOVE NOTES FOR NEIGHBORS

Daily life can feel like a grind sometimes.  How about spreading some good cheer that’s sure to cheer you up as well?  Write a short and sweet love note to a neighbor.  Put it on their front door along with a bag of treats (or a Christmas Love Box™  kit).

A friendly neighbor is a joy to have! A difficult neighbor makes life uncomfortable. Whether you’re best buddies with your neighbors or you don't know them at all, writing and sending love notes is a wonderful way to connect in a meaningful way.

There are many benefits to having good neighbors. They can bring you cheer as you chat across your yards, help with security, bring you food, pray for you during a difficult season, help with the lawn or snow, help with your kids, and be there for all of life's ups and downs.

Use this recipe as inspiration to create your own love notes for those you share your neighborhood with.  Open your heart and let the love flow.
