Random MOMents – Summer Memory Gratitude Edition

Well, summertime is officially over.
And that got me to thinking about summer and lots of sweet memories began tumbling through my head – which led to me feeling immeasurably grateful.
Which led to this list of Random MOMents I am grateful for from this summer:
