When I was younger, my parents always rented a cottage in Cape Cod. Some years it was just the three of us, other years we went with friends but we always went. I have sweet memories of mid August afternoons playing at the beach with my family, late evenings and lazy mornings. I'm not exactly sure when my family stopped going, but it was likely at some point later in high school for me when I had more summer reading requirements and Athletic commitments. It makes me sad thinking about that, was it a conscious decision to stop going or did it's just not work out for us and then the tradition came to an end?
My husband and I were given a two night stay at the Chatham Bars Inn as a wedding gift. I remember having a weekend getaway and as both declaring that we would vacation here when we had children. Some dreams actually work out the way we imagine! We've been so blessed to be able to continue this tradition every year. This destination hold a special place in our hearts, so many memories, and we hope to continue making new ones as the years roll-on.
These last spectacular summer days maybe fleeting, but they will always be with us! With two full weeks of summer ahead, we plan to soak up every last bit!
