This trip to Jacksonville has been different than all the rest, in the most wonderful of ways.
With the presence of the sweetest 6 week old, life moves at a different pace. Unlike years prior we're not cramming in things to do every minute of the day, racing to complete a list of activities. This time, conversations hover around babies and jobs and loving life where we are right now. We make time for good coffee, long dinners and easy afternoons and every interaction with a friend feels like coming home.
Sharing such deep parts of my life with people I see just once a year feels completely natural and nothing can replace the love I have for this place.
Three summers in, a lifetime to go.
