A Classic Mother-Daughter Day

My Mom and I had a classic mother-daughter day today...at least in the sense of a classic day that was so very, very us. We started at one of our favorite thrift stores, that we have been coming to for our clothes since I was very young...I snapped this photo of her walking, on the hunt for bargains...

...then we stopped at a bakery in Oakland that we have been coming to for special occasions since I was very young, and each picked out a pastry which we ate there at one of their tables...while talking and laughing together...

...and then ended the day at a grocery discount store, where she picked up some things...a place that my parents have been shopping at my entire life, though the location of the store in Oakland, since I was little, has changed...

It was such a classic "us," lovely mother-daughter day...
