Flashback Friday — The Crazy Neighbors

Flashing back four years ago to when our then-neighbors, The Ritchies, were preparing to move.

A motley crew if ever there was one.

The Ritchies and “The Basils,” a motley crew if ever there was one.

Thankfully for all involved, they stayed in town and have remained in touch, but at the time it was an emotional change for us all, which you can read about here.

They’d moved in to the house next door from Manhattan and over the course of several years made their way into our lives and hearts, bearing gifts of French toast, incredible margaritas, parenting questions and heartfelt “feels” as Catherine would say.

We wouldn’t have it any other way.

Just this week, we were conversing over a group text to set a date for a final BBQ before Catherine returns to Hofstra in three weeks.

It’ll be yet another fun-filled evening with laughs aplenty. I’m sure we’ll look a lot like we do in this photo by the end of the night.
