The Most Perfect Cape Cod: One Of The Places I Call Home

The Most Perfect Cape Cod: One Of The Places I Call Home

The Cape encompasses the grit of Boston, the Northerner's desperate searches for the ocean after the cold winters, the authentic smell of Soft as a grape, the deliciousness of a fresh oyster from the Falmouth Raw Bar, the quick ferry to the "exclusive" Nantucket, Jack Rodgers on anyone that is breathing, and lots and lots of soft beach curls after an amazing day spent at the beach.

The Cape is one of my favorite places on the world and I am so thankful to have grown up so close to it. I live about 45 minutes from the Bourne bridge and have always appreciated all of the wonderful places that are in the Cape. My favorite place is Provincetown which is located in the tip of the Cape, about 2.5 hours from Boston. Although it is pretty far to get to, especially if your only going for a short time, it is definitely worth the drive. Race Point Beach is the beach that I go to and you can drive your car right onto the sand. Although you must deflate your tires first, don't forget this or you will be stuck in the dunes for days. Not a good time when the sun is beating down on you.

Falmouth is the center of the Cape, kinda like the capital where Anejo's guacamole can be smelt from hours away and if you don't go to the Heights for the fourth are you even from Massachusetts, prob not lol. Oh, another thing, you will have tons of people from all over the country, and other countries whose parents grew up in Massachusetts that want to show their children a bit of who they are. You automatically understand that they also call the Cape their home. Woods Hole is where I vacationed my whole life with all of my mom's side, yes all in one house and she's one of 5. Those were some of the best weeks of my life. They also have the most divine bakery called Pie in the Sky that is a must go to.

Popponesst is the cutest little town over. I grew up going to the "Spit" as my cousins have a house there and two of my best friends. It comes alive in the Summer and the marketplace is one of my favorite places to go. Although I may have outgrown the mini golf and fun games to play at the picnic tables I still will always appreciate the fun I had there when I was younger.

The Cape has a beautiful quietness to it that makes it so unique and loveable. It has history and has been loved for a long time. It has that feeling when a place is lived in and its characters shine. I am so thankful to be so close to a place like Cape Cod. I hope to be able to go as I get older and one day shows my children a small part of where I grew up.

May Is Mental Health Awareness Month, A Reminder We Need Even More In Quarantine

You're going through something brand new — that's worth talking about.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. This isn't new to 2020, but oh man, if we ever needed a reminder about the importance of mental health, now is the time. With different states all over the place in regard to stay-at-home orders, phased reopenings, and a "new normal," we're experiencing conflict, fear, changes, and unknowns that can easily trigger mental struggles we already have or spark feelings we've never had before. Yes, May is always Mental Health Awareness Month, but in quarantine, that need for positive mental health is taken to a whole new level.

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

13 Reasons We're Using Quarantine As The Ultimate Excuse For Online Shopping This Month

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Morgan Wooten To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

Morgan Wooten

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.
