In any family relationship, nothing beats the special bond between a mother and a daughter. Think of Gilmore Girls’ adorable duo of Lorelai and Rory or The Golden Girls’ hilarious and iconic mother-daughter tandem, Sophia and Dorothy.
There’s no doubt our daughters want to grow up to be exactly like our moms! Check these interesting ways to celebrate and strengthen those extraordinary mother-daughter friendships.
Have a Road Trip.
Easy as pie, choose an area on the map, play those funky tunes, and drive! Visit the Blue Ridge Parkway for lovely fall foliage, or rent an open-air convertible for a windy and salty stroll on Florida’s beachfront Highway 30-A. Besides, there’s no better way to spend quality time with your universe’s leading lady than navigating a new destination. We’re dropping a clue: Watch Thelma & Louise.
Get out of Your Comfort Zone.
Cast away your fears and rely on your best gal’s strong and sweet presence that getting out of your box and trying new adventures are insanely cool. How about taking yoga classes together or signing up for a painting class or archery lessons, there options are endless. Something wild and epic? Skydiving and adrenaline rush, anyone?
Your mom’s your first teacher and the first person who showed you the values of generosity and humility. With that said, look for an organization where you and your mom can give back to the community. Offer a free tutorial class or serve free snacks to an elderly care facility/ These are some things that will absolutely make your hearts happier and theirs too!
Run a Race.
Stay physically and mentally fit by walking or even running together. A workout buddy has never been more exciting, especially if it’s your daughter. Boost each other’s confidence and push your endurance to achieve your fitness goals. Because road races are held across the South, it’s a great excuse to have a girls’ getaway like in Charleston that hosts its 10K Cooper River Bridge Run in the spring while Seaside, Florida, serves a 5K and half-marathon in the fall.
Whip up an Old Family Recipe.
Bring out the old family cookbook and relive cooking and baking memories like your grandma’s classic yummy chocolate cake or oatmeal cookies. Make a grocery run and block a weekend schedule with your mom for that healthy and fatty dishes that await to be spread out in an intimate family dinner.
Read the Same Book at the Same Time.
Need more ‘I can’t believe that happened?” moments in between reading the same book at the same time? The fact that you and your daughter are on the same page (literally), you get to exchange notes on the plot and characters. Make this activity a routine and you’ll be amazed at the vocabulary that you learned plus your fun moments with your dear daughter.
Bring out your inner Chip and Joanna, and put your minds and hands to building something special! Start small by creating a birdhouse and whenever you’re ready for the big DIY project, build a wooden dollhouse for your cute sister. Such artsy collaboration means love and unity for mother-daughter bonding.
