… here in Historic District Savannah hosted a casually elegant street party as both a Celebration of Springtime and the Birthday of her lovely Connecticut friend Martha:

Held on the blocked-off-for-the-evening Hull Street next to the condo, the party boasted an eclectic mix of downtown Savannahians and folks from all over.  Fun from the very beginning.  Here’s a photo journal of the evening.

One of the great joys of parties such as this one has to be the connections we reaffirm/create/nurture with other folks, especially the people who live around us.  Far too often we go about our days (and lives) with little awareness of our neighbors.  I read an article a while back which posited that the architecture of our homes even contributes to our isolation:  whereas in previous generations the front porch held a dominant place as a feature of houses (and neighborliness), most homes today have moved the porch around back in the form of decks and patios (thus decreasing ease of neighborly interaction).

May we all look for ways to be good neighbors.  And a street party is certainly a fun way to do so.
