Ever! They have not only become our neighbours, but they are good friends now too. And we will be sad to leave them behind when we move back to Canada.

Here are just a few things about them and things they have done that make them the very best!…

The same night that we moved all our furniture into our place in Mountain View, Nicole and Ben came over and introduced themselves, gave us home made brownies as a welcome gift and invited us over for dinner that same week!

Lloyd noticed the smell of baking one evening, he sniffed and mentioned it to Nicole. When she was done baking she brought over a large sample of the chocolate brownies with Swiss chocolate in them! Another time they had leftover birthday cake, so they dropped some by for us!

Coming home from being married in Canada, Nicole and Ben looked after the mail and our plants while we were away (and have every time we have gone!). We came home to a lovely sign on our front door saying “just married”, getting inside we had a bottle of champagne in the fridge and two champagne glasses, my favourite Gerber daisy flowering plant and little hearts scattered on our kitchen table.

It was Swiss Day, August 1st, Nicole and I were chatting online. I was wishing her Happy Swiss Day and said it was B.C. day as well, she said I should put up my flag, I said we did not have one. Not 10 minutes later there was a knock on the door, it was Nicole with a flag of BC!. She had printed out the B.C. flag in color from the web, laminated and stuck to a straw!

    We will miss them dearly and thank them for being such wonderful people.
