Our 2nd summer in Mississippi brought our first bountiful vegetable garden. It meant an end to bustling school mornings and ushered in lazy mornings full of snuggles and lingering jammy time. It brought mother's day…. a day of extra love and kisses and sweet songs sung in baby voices. This summer brought a special trip to visit friends and family dearly missed. It brought summertime nights roasting marshmallows….and longer days that felt like they would never end…. but in the good way.
