My mom came to visit me during Thanksgiving for a week and we had a blast. It was the first time she visited me in my new location in Texas and I wanted to show her a good time. During her time here, she showed me that you can have a great time without spending a ton of money. One of the things that we did was take a lot of photos! My mom has always had a knack for photography. She used to take classes back in her day. I have tried to convince her to start a photography business on the side because I think she is talented. I am pretty sure I inherited my creativity from her.

Yesterday before she left,  we visited a coffee shop in the Houston area called Tout Suite. They have pretty good hot cocoa and some decent breakfast tacos. I was hoping for a more extensive breakfast menu but nonetheless it was a cute little breakfast joint with a great atmosphere.

I ordered the potato & egg and sausage & egg breakfast taco with some hot chocolate.

They have a pastry section in the Suite as well. I decided to try red velvet, ginger snap, and creme brûlée macarons for the first time to see what the hype is all about. I am not a fan.

Super cozy look for a rather chilly morning in Downtown Houston

After leaving the restaurant, my mom and I head to the Discovery Green in Downtown Houston to take a short stroll in the park. It turned into another impromptu photo shoot.

Probably checking Instagram again. I’m a little obsessed.

At the end of the morning we did a little shopping in the Pearland Town Center before I dropped her off to catch her flight back home. While walking through the shopping center, Mom spotted a boutique with these beautiful Tiffany blue doors. Of course she had to capture the moment and I didn’t mind.

I was really sad to see her go but I will cherish our time together. These photos are proof that all you need to have fun is be in the presence of good company. A great camera and talented amateur photographer doesn’t hurt either 😉

Hope you all are having a wonderful Wednesday!
