why we love our neighborhood reason #2


reason #2:
the church bells

we live across the street from a cute, little, catholic church.

we found out on our first morning in our new apartment that the church bells ring every morning at 8:00 am.

not the most amazing thing when you want to sleep in because they don't just count the time, they ring an entire song.

but after a few mornings, we realized that the bells only play soothing, pretty songs in the morning. so we just started getting used to them.

now i enjoy being woken up and lulled back to sleep by the pretty church bells.

  4. when i lived on campus in college, the little chapel would ring every 15 minutes-- and would play quite the song at noon.

    whenever i would visit home (then for a little while once i moved home), i found myself waiting to hear the bells ring.

    thanks for the reminder, it brought some good memories back!

  7. Ahhhh! Don't make me cry while I'm at work! Well, it's not your fault. When I lived in NY (all growing up as a child) we lived a street away from the Catholic church where my dad attended elementary school. It had bells that chimed all the time and I LOVED it. You're so lucky!

  16. How fun! When I lived in Florence, Italy I fell in love with the church bells. I now live near a church in the states but it sadly doesn't have bells to ring.
