Peaceful Morning in Cape Cod

my favorite way to start the morning, coffee, Google Reader and sunshine on the deck.

Everyone needs a little downtime

With limited vacation days, it’s tough to get that time to yourself that you need to keep sane at work! Luckily, I’ve been able to take 3 mini trips this summer, which I almost enjoy better than one big one.

I’ve already blogged about my trip to Chicago (my future cityyy!) and talked about what was then my soon-to-be trip to the Cape and Martha’s Vineyard. The trip was great! I drove down (or over or up? I’m not good with maps..) with my boyfriend on a Wednesday night after work. We stayed for two nights at a house in Dennis on the Cape that his family had rented for a week. After getting in at 1:30 in the morning, we got up at 6:00 and went deep sea fishing. Totally not my thing but ended up being AWESOME!

After some beach time and amazing seafood my boyfriend and I left to hit the Vineyard for a couple of days with my best friends from home. To avoid the high-prices that are the Vineyard, we fit 8 of us into a tiny 10×10 room with two twin bed and a couple of air mattresses. Tight squeeze but it was hilarious. We walked around, shopped a bit then got some seafood and hit the bar for my 23rd birthday celebration.

We did so much more but the details probably won’t interest you! It was a much-needed and much-appreciated trip. Hope you’ve had a few like that this summer!

If you wanna be my lover, you gotta get with my friends!

I’m still very close to my group of girlfriends from highschool. I know that I’m lucky to have six best friends that I’ve known for so long. Even though we’re all in different cities and states, we try to get together a couple times a year to relive old memories and make new ones!

This week we’re heading to Cape Cod and Martha’s Vineyard for a long weekend (and to celebrate my birthdayyyyy). Only a few of us are coming but I can’t wait! The last time I was there was in 2008 for my 21st birthday. Needless to say, it was awesome.

Happy short work week (for me) !
