I guess you can say I took a summer hiatus from blogging. While writing is therapeutic for me, a little break was much-needed. With three kids home all summer, I was determined to be more present and not distracted by freelancing deadlines or documenting our summer adventures.
Though we didn't take any big vacations, this summer was definitely eventful---visits from grandparents, a couples trip to San Diego, saying goodbye to our dog (that's for another post) and celebrating my sister's wedding (again a full post is coming), were among the summer highlights.
And of course there were the little moments---spending hours in our swimming pool next door, late night campfires, building sand castles at our local beach, tubing on the lake, meeting new neighbors, visiting plantations, panning for gold at a nearby mine and tasting hundreds of exotic sodas at the Coca Cola Museum.
It was technically our second summer in Georgia, but it was the first summer the Peach State felt like home.
