I spent this summer at my farmhouse in Pennsylvania. In the days and weeks before our second daughter was born, I spent lots of quality time with my oldest daughter, Rumi Joon. We took long walks around the fields, went fishing in a pond, and made daisy crowns together.

After what seemed like an eternity of waiting, I gave birth to Indi Joon in our backyard on July 1.

Indi Joon is already such a little ball of joy, and I’ve loved watching my two daughters love and learn about each other here in the natural beauty of Pennsylvania. It’s definitely a summer I’ll never forget.
