Reason #276 Why We Love Our Neighborhood
We’ve lived in the Oak Cliff area for over a year now and love it just as much as we did day one. It’s like a separate small town just 5 minutes from the big city. When you enter North Oak Cliff, it’s like you’re driving into a totally different place from the city. With huge Oak trees everywhere, curvy hills (yes, hills!), and adorable, well-preserved old homes lining the street, how could you not. The quaint Bishop Arts District is a 3-minute drive away with delicious one-of-a-kind restaurants and locally-owned shops for our enjoyment. And I can’t leave out the fabulous Urban Acres where we get our bi-monthly organic produce, pastured meats, and more.
One of my favorite things about living in Oak Cliff is our neighborhood “mom’s club” called RECPTA. It is a group for North Oak Cliff parents of young children and has been a great way to meet others as well as keep up-to-date on things going on the internet and even offers a mini-neighborhood-only-craigslist type of forum. I haven’t even really been able to get as involved as I’d like with having had Jack last summer and, with Liv due next month, I’m sure it’ll still be a little longer but I look forward to meeting more fellow moms and helping more in the community. All this to say…they hosted a fun Popsicle party last week and we made sure to stop by even if only for a little bit. Jack got to meet a few ‘friends’ as mommy did the same. Hopefully we will get to meet even more playmates in the future. In the meantime, enjoy the pics!
We had lots of fun…thanks RECPTA!
