My Girl and her Beach


My daughter and I just got home from a remarkable stay at Beaches Resorts in Negril Jamaica for #BeachesMoms. Mother & Daughter time = success!

Every day, we dedicated some time so that Isabelle could hunt for seashells. One of her favourite things to do while at the beach, she takes great pride in the seashells she finds.

I bet this girl could spend hours combing the sand and waters looking for her shells, if not the entire day.

When I wasn’t helping her in the search, I watch her walk up and down the beach, occasionally turning over some white sand with her toes. She’d stop searching now and then to gaze out over the ocean and I’d see a peaceful smile form on her face displaying true gratitude for the moment.

A simple thing, my girl and her beach, yet moments that are my favourite memories.

  19. Great photos, I also love being on the beach, my Mom tells me daily that you’re not happy unless your by the water and soaking in the sun, it’s true..something about the water is so calming, also great memories that your daughter and yourself will always remember, I don’t have many Mom and daughter moments with my Mom, she worked hard when we were growing up. But the times that we spend together now are making up for that lost time.

  20. Sounds like you had an amazing time. It’s so important to make sure we have special time with each of our kids, where they have our undivided attention.

  21. You are lucky to have had this experience to share with your daughter. These are the memories that will last forever.
