Cape Summer

I can’t believe that summer is halfway over.  (Let’s take the optimistic route and remember… we still have another half of summer left!)  During the first half of our summer, we’ve been all over the place with weddings, reunions, and the like.  Lucky for me, two of the weddings have been on Cape Cod, which has meant lots of time with my family… and the beach.  Here are a few of my favorite little bits so far.  There’s no place like home.

    Gorgeous! There really is no place like when when it’s a place like that! :) So glad you got to spend quality time there this summer.

    In the words of Britney Spears, “I, I, I, wanna go, go, go” and I need that towel to go with my new neon pink bikini.

    I’m so jealous of all your travels!  Those pictures are beautiful.  Sounds like you had a great first half of summer… still one more to go!!  PS I need that towel… can I keep it in my office?

    What awesome pictures!  Are you from the Cape?!

    My sister and I (Tamra of Ever Swoon) were thinking about taking a sis trip there next summer.  Any and all tips are welcome!  We haven’t started researching yet.

      Thank you! And yes, I am!

        How awesome.  What a fun place to be from.  Tamra mentioned she was seeing you soon for dinner so she’s going to ask you about the Cape.  (She told me to remind her to ask you, of course she told the pregnant mindless person this!).  We are hoping to take our sister trip there next June (2013).

          Aw, thanks Tara! Yes, Tamra and I keep rescheduling our dinner but need to get one planned. And we’ll talk about the Cape! So fun that you may plan a trip – it is my favorite place in the world.
