A little piece of heaven

These past few days were fabulous!  I got the opportunity (thanks to my ex-husband!) to vacation up north at his timeshare for a few days with Hailey.  My ex had gotten an extra week and kindly offered to split it with me!  So, after Hailey’s dance recital on Sunday the two of us made the 3 hour drive up north.

I had not been there for about 5 years and it had not changed a bit!

Everything was just as beautiful as I remembered it.  The picture above shows the condo unit overlooking the lake.  The building has 10 condos with a pool and a hot tub in the middle.  They also have 3 houses and we stayed in this one pictured below.

I always enjoyed coming up here for vacation and every year when I was still married.  Hailey is lucky enough to spend 2 weeks every summer here with her dads side of the family.  A few months ago she told me that she wanted me to come up with her.  I said “I thought that was your special place with your daddy.”  She said she really wanted me to come up! Luckily enough a few weeks later the opportunity fell into my lap!  Thanks to a great relationship with my ex, I got to spend a glorious 3 nights and 4 days experiencing a little piece of heaven with just Hailey.

ready for the beach!

We had such a wonderful mother/daughter vacation.  We laughed so much!  We read, we snuggled, we watched movies and ate great food.

Hot tub time!

We spent a lot of time at the beach, in the pool and in the hot tub.  Hailey built a huge fort for us in the living room one day and we both played in it.

ba baam!

hanging out in the fort!

Chocolate covered strawberries and marshmallows

fondu fun!

chocolate milk cheers!

It was so nice to be out in the middle of nowhere enjoying beautiful views and fabulous weather.

aaaahhhhh

We were so deep in the middle of nowhere that we had no cell phone reception or internet connection.  It was so nice to truly unplug from the distractions of everyday life and just be there together enjoying a little piece of heaven.

We had such a wonderful time.  Hailey’s dad came up Wednesday afternoon for the rest of the week with her and I made the 3 hour drive home.

I am so happy to have had this opportunity to spend all of this one on one time with my daughter at such a beautiful place.

I love you most

  1. My fiancé always told there are Mothers and there are others, your surely a Mother. God bless your family and it’s great that you and your ex husband still get along because that’s rare nowadays. I have two lil ones and I love them with all my heart. Great post!!

    • Thank you so much for your kind words! I hear so many horror stories about parents not getting along after divorce which really only harms the child. I am lucky to have an ex-husband who is a wonderful daddy to our daughter and always puts her needs first.

  2. oh wow – it looks like a fabulous getaway! 🙂 so nice for you and jaime to be able to spend the time away (and unplugged – JEALOUS! i need to do that more.).
