vacation recap.

in the hopes of squashing post-vacation blues, i’m doing a recap of my most recent summer getaway: a one-week stint in provincetown (cape cod, massachusetts), a town my family has returned to for decades.

this time, the view from our rented house looked a little something like this:

we inevitably hated it, along with the rest of our surroundings. i especially detested the shingled houses framed with vines and hydrangeas…

and the sun-speckled bays dotted with wind-blown sea grasses.

ever the morning person, my favorite moments took place in the wee hours, when i woke up with the sun at 6 a.m…

lazily wandered down the street to my favorite coffee shop…

and then — once appropriately “wired” — returned home for a bit of stretching and yoga (bedside, of course) before breakfast.

morning stretches

cinnamon heart to heart cereal with toasted pecans, sliced bananas, almond milk, and extra cinnamon for me; 0% plain fage greek yogurt with sliced bananas, toasted pecans, and honey for a friend:

other favorite moments — those that happened at normal hours of the day — included a delicious BLT salad at the canteen’s backyard patio…
