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
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!

“Cherish those precious times with
loved ones and find time to add silliness
into your serious schedules.” ❤ 💜🧡💚💙💛 ❤
back then where
wanting to be a
a big dream
have lost their appeal
without training wheels – oh, the
innocence of youth

This is my last Shadorma for Eliot’s November Shadorma challenge, so I thought to end with a fun topic. 🙂 Hope you enjoy! ❤
A few hours of solid
sleep was better than
nothing before the body
awoke and shifted into
high gear with a reeling
mind too active for
three in the morning
Those thoughts wouldn’t
rest until the clock read
an hour later, after battling
the tossing and turning
and consistent whirling
Then it was time to step
out of the routine and
into an adventure that
didn’t even own a spot
on the bucket list
I I enjoyed this at Peter’s site, https://avulnerablespace.wordpress.com/, so I decided to give it a try. It wasn’t as easy as it seemed, but it was fun digging up these thoughts. I encourage you to try and if you do, please share.
What reminds You of who You truly are?
- My husband and marriage
- Singing my heart out
- Dancing into the night
- Quiet beach time
- Serenity of the mountains
- Romance ♥
- Walking my dog
- Trying to be the best mom
- Laughing to tears
- Writing poetry, writing in general
- Iced Nonfat Chai Lattes
- Time spent with my Sisters and good Friends
- Baking with Mom, then baking with her memory
- Watching movies
- Reading, reading, reading
If you have a response to anything on my list, I’d love to hear it,
and now I share a wish for you:
Love and Blessings, Lauren ♥
Today just happens to be
a day honoring coffee
so pull up a chair
I promise to share
the aroma is enticing
with no overpricing
there are coffee fixings, too,
of course, don’t overdo
it’s free; won’t cost a dime
so if you have the time
and you’re feeling so inclined
enjoy some java and some peace of mind 🙂

You registered on WordPress.com 5 years ago!
Thanks for flying with us. Keep up the good blogging!
Another year zoomed by since I last celebrated with WordPress and
I’ll repeat my story from last year…I opened this blog in 2010,
became active in 2011, so I’m always one year behind. 🙂
In addition to my “blogiversary”, I’d like to celebrate the making of new friends, the joy of learning, the amazing following, the expansion of communication, and most of all, the fun! Cheers to taking life less seriously and having more fun!
Writing for our blogs is a great hobby; it gives us the opportunity to meet new people along the way. What could be better?
So thank you, EVERYONE, for your continued support! I began this journey before I turned the big 50 and now it’s been five years? Sigh…oh well, let the fun continue…
and now please join me in celebrating by singing, dancing,
and toasting to another awesome blogging year!
Sending lots of love, Lauren ♥ ♫ xo
Do you have a family member or friend who is constantly taking photos? Do you have moments when you just don’t want to be the subject? I do, I have and I’ve been the guilty one clicking away.
Copper’s been in our family for over three years now and I think we’ve taken about a million photos of him (slight exaggeration). But for those of you who own pets, don’t you agree there can never be too many pictures of our furry friends?
I took the first three when he had better things to do (like chew on his bone). However, he complied but not without attitude. 🙂 He weighs about 74 lbs, is tall and lean and all muscle, which is why this first photo makes me smile. In the photos following, you’ll see his true self.
“If you insist”
“Time’s almost up”
and now some photos from my son…
and from my daughter..
and lastly, with me
I hope you enjoyed this peek into Copper’s life
and I wish you a smooth and peaceful start to your new week!
Lots of Love, Lauren 🙂 ♥
