If you follow me on social media (instagram, twitter, snapchat) you already know that I am in my favorite place in the universe, Cape Cod. My mom’s family has been coming to the Cape since the 1960s, and my grandparents have owned our current house, The Anchor, since the year I was born.
Needless to say, we are deeply in love with this place. From May through September we try to be at the house every weekend, and its always the saddest when we close up for the winter. The best part of every summer is the end of August, when we spend about two weeks down here. There is something so magical about a place that calms you, makes you happy, and makes you feel safe. No matter how much the world around me changes, The Anchor has basically stayed the same all these years, and when you’re twenty-two years old and everything is changing, that is the most wonderful thing ever.
Saturday night fireworks at West Dennis Beach! We didn’t even know this was going to happen, but what a way to start our vacation!We like to get to Chapin Beach around 8 AM before the crowds. Between the sandbars and the warm turquoise waves, I swear they might’ve shot Pirates of the Caribbean here… Seriously though, how cute are my parents?
Sitting where the tide fills the sandbar
Late night screening of ‘Trainwreck’ at Chatham Orpheum. I love their mural of the greats, so I couldn’t pass up a picture with Marilyn. (Shoutout to Indiana Jones too, yum!)
