Best Shot Monday - "Photo memento"

The theme for today's entry is an image that conjures up a meaningful memory or has a special story behind it. A challenge since my memory is not what it used to be! Mommy mind? Or hormones? Okay, another topic.

Meaningful for me these days is time spent in the company of good friends, free from to-do lists, activities and events that seem to be cluttering up our calendar. So no big story here ... but a great memory of a recent afternoon spent at the bookstore with a good friend and her daughter. The girls ran around giggling and being silly; hot chocolate and baked goodies were consumed; and the moms had some precious minutes to sit and talk. All the fixings of a good time. (The image I should have shot is of two adults huddled around a child sized table, deep in conversation and trying to ignore the wreckage building up around them. Two pairs of small hands and energetic legs can gather up quite a loot of books and toys in short order!)

And I am a sucker for little girl's rain boots. Aren't their knees just yummy? Don't you wish you could get away with such wild outfits? Stripes, hearts, polka dots ... everything one could love.


  1. The most adorable little boots, and a great story to go with it!

  2. oh, I love all the patterns and colours in this pic. are those giraffe rainboots? too cool! oh, to be that young again and 'allowed' to wear these mixes of outfits! :-)
