Is there a special place that you visit that just makes you feel so happy and warms your heart?
For me, that place is Cape Cod (aka 'the Cape.')

Growing up, we would visit the Cape every summer, exploring everywhere from the Cape Cod Canal all the way out to Provincetown.
Cape Cod just has this special charm about it and when I think about New England and the geographic area that I grew up in, the Cape envelops it all.

Besides my family and friends, of course, Cape Cod is one of the things that I miss most about living up north.
With knowing that there is a pretty good possibility that S and I might have to move west, wayyy west, within the next year; it has me dying to get home for a visit and enjoy some of my favorite places.
S and I will be traveling to Connecticut for two weddings in September and decided that during the week in between, we are going to spend a couple days up on the Cape and Martha's Vineyard.
If you've been reading my blog for a while now, you might have figured out that I LOVE to plan things, especially trips, and I have our entire four-day trip planned out already. Hey, I am super excited, and it gives me something to look forward to!
Another super exciting thing is that S has never been to Cape Cod. He has visited Connecticut with me and I've brought him to NYC and snowboarding in Vermont, but this will be his first trip to the shore.
While I am dying to spill all about the trip, I'll be saving that itinerary for another day ;) Until then, here is a little preview of what we can expect to see on our mini-vacay.

Last, but not least, I can't leave out drag queens in P-town! Provincetown, 2010
I can't wait to share our itinerary when it gets closer and the wrap-up of our trip in September!
What are some of your favorite places to visit?? Is there anywhere nostalgic that you would love to bring your significant other to?
