Down the memory lane, Family matters, Travel tales, Writing Prompts

Relax ~ Weekly Photo Challenge

A cup of coffee, a good book, a walk down the road, a good movie, engaging in creative activities, spending time with family or friends or simply surrendering in the lap of sleep; all of us have some or the other way to relax our stressed, tired or overworked brain cells.

It is amazing how a simple moment we managed to capture years ago suddenly turns therapeutic and nostalgic. Thanks to this prompt, I decided to sift through some old family albums and nosedived into a bagful of beautiful memories of my parents, my in-laws, our newlywed days and most importantly, my lovely kids! 🙂
