Time Well Spent

Recently, my daughter and I spent some time together, and I’ll always
cherish our mom/daughter 
moments. On this day, the weather
cooperated as the sun warmed us with its rays, instead of raindrops
raining on our parade. We walked around, browsing in stores, while
talking and acting a little silly, too…
After all, what’s life without smiles and laughter?

The Mallard’s house (so cute) and pretty Koi fish


turtles, too

fun photo booth

silly faces – of course, anytime a photo booth is near, we jump in!
You know the quality isn’t good when you’re only paying a $1, but
the fun and faces are worth so much more!

    1. I’m grateful to have a close relationship with both of my children, Balroop – something not to be taken for granted. And thanks so much for your lovely complement and words. They made my day. 🙂 Have a wonderful afternoon! 🌷

    1. Thanks so much, Betty. It was a great day, and you’re right about silliness being a necessity, at times. Thanks also for your beautiful compliment to my daughter and me. That’s nice to read first thing on this Monday morning. 🙂 Sending hugs, my friend. It’s almost spring, too. ❤🌼🌻🌷

      1. I do remember that show, Betty! 🙂 It’s raining today though for the week, so back to winter. But we need the rain, so it’s all good. 😊🥀🌼🦋

  1. Okay, Lauren,

    Now I know where you got your mischief and humour from – or is it the other way around. LOL. Good one, and happy for you both. And Betty is right – two beautiful women.

    Have a great week ahead, dear friend,

    1. Well, I think she got it from me, Eric. 🙂 So glad you enjoyed this post. We had a great day and time well spent that was greatly needed. And thanks also for your lovely compliment. You have us both blushing. 🙂
      Wishing you a great week ahead, too. I’ll be a little older in five days. :O

    1. You always have a wonderful way with words, Raja, and I will convey your wishes to my daughter, as well as, keeping some for me. 🙂 Have a great Monday, my friend…

    1. Thanks so much, Ian, and I’m glad you enjoyed the photos. This day was definitely a happy one, and I look forward to many more. She may be moving out of the area later in the year, so I’ll take as many as I can. 🙂 Happy Monday, my friend…

  2. Lauren, what a wonderful special time with your daughter and I’m so happy for you both! This post has me smiling, especially the photos… you still have photo booths?! Great set of silly faces and you both look so alike, radiating joy! Days to treasure! 😀❤️

    1. I’m glad we got you smiling, Annika. This was one of our many mom/daughter days together, and I’m thankful to have a great relationship with her and my son. My husband has the same with them both. In some places, we’ll find a photo booth and they’re super fun! Yes, I guess she does resemble me. 🙂 Definitely days to treasure! 💕🌷🌹

  3. Beautiful post, Lauren! And I so agree on happiness being time spent together! My mom and I also love doing silly faces photographs!! 😄 And your daughter looks just as beautiful as her mom. 😊💕

    1. Thanks so much, Sarah, and that’s awesome to hear you and your mom do silly face photos, too! Gotta love those silly times in between the tough moments. And thanks for your lovely compliment to both of us. You brightened my day, in spite of the rain. 😊💗🌹

      1. You’re very welcome, dear Lauren! And yes gotta love and treasure those moments of silliness in between the tough times – they’re sometimes all that seems to stand in the way of loosing one’s head! 😂 Have a beautiful day – even if it rains! 😊💞

    1. I know I am and don’t take it for granted. They’ve both done some traveling in and out of the country, which is hard enough. 🙂 For now, they’re close in geography and I’m grateful. Thanks, Ian. 🙂

  4. Lauren, what a fun post! Your daughter is beautiful, just like you. I loved the silly-face photos. Those memories will last a lifetime. Enjoy your time with your children. We never know where life will take them next. You have a beautiful family. Happy Easter! Love and hugs! ❤️❤️❤️

  5. Aha. It rarely happens in the millenial era. Excellent relationship. A precious moment. Parents always want to convey good things to their daughters and boys, including being silly together. Regards. 🙂
