She's got that Mona Lisa Smile

This very lovely young woman is my hubby Martin’s daughter Mara. She is a lovely bundle of energetic surprise and delight and still in her late 20s. She’s an independent young woman who at this time is giving most of her love to her grandma and to her dog Marco Amor.






You were such a delight

When you were little

But the biggest wonder of all

Is how lovely you became


A personality that outshines all others

A sweetness that’s never lost

I know you’d hug the world

If just you could


I do believe you have it all

A whole bunch of the greatest friends

A dad who loves and adores you

And a great dog named Marco Amor


It’s that Mona Lisa smile that gets them all the time

Your long flowing hair

Sure wish you’d find your prince

I know he’d treasure you


So spread your lovely smile

All around

It’s what makes you so special

You know we all adore wonderful you

      I think that the very word "Beautiful" was invented long ago in a world where A beautiful young lady first smiled a smile like hers , and when that happened even the darkest angels sang.

      Awesome. It must be a real treat seeing a child grow and blossoming into a wonderful flower. Her smile is a give away of her happiness. I think that is so cool. Thank you for sharing and say hello to Mara for me.

      It doesn't look like Mara went through any of the awkward stages most of us do. From little on, she shows her great smile. She looks very peaceful and serene. Not to mention, the most beautiful skin that is usually only seen on the cover of a high fashion magazine. Love is evident in your tribute to Mara. Thank you for sharing your beautiful photos, too.

      My Dad once said I had a Mona Lisa smile. He never gave me compliments so I've always remembered it.

      Mara is a very lovely young lady. She needs to appreciate herself, and all that she is, more.
